Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project, school aged children, in band or considering band, will feel excited and inspired to become greater participants in music through band, or if not yet in band, will decide to join to experience music through performance. Evaluation will occur through a participant questionnaire which will assess their interest in exploring music through band. In addition, the participants will develop an artist questionnaire to give to them upon arrival to learn about why they are artists and what they both enjoy and dislike about their profession.

Measurable Outcome(s)

After hosting the Copper Street Brass for the one day residency and the concert, I gave a short questionnaire to the 3rd and 4th grade students asking if they would choose to be in band when they enter 5th grade and what instrument they might want to play. Every student in both 3rd and 4th grade wanted to be in band and wanted to play a brass instrument. 100% of each class wanting to be in band is what I consider a huge success.
