Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Children will learn, experience and practice the difference between passive and active listening. Active listening is evaluated by participation in the program’s interactive activities. For example a child will move their body in response to the music when prompted. 2: Children will learn basic music terminology and apply those terms to different expressions of music. Learning is evaluated by a child’s response to an activity for a specific musical term, e.g. following the volume of music by raising one’s arms when the music is loud and putting them down when soft.
