Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project, the Ada-Borup Pep Band will better represent the Ada-Borup School and the Ada-Borup communities by performing for girls' and boys' basketball tournament games. Evaluation will occur through pre-survey and post survey by the athletic coordinator, resident artist, and participating students.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Of the 7 students who responded to our Post Survey, 100% answered yes to this statement: I AM BETTER AT PLAYING THE DRUM SET THAN I WAS BEFORE I WORKED WITH JOEL MERKENS; and, 86% answered 'yes' to this statement: I LEARNED THE ONE THING THAT I WANTED TO LEARN ABOUT PLAYING THE DRUM SET. I received several compliments on how well our band performed during the tournaments. We were even recognized by the High School League personnel at the Girls State Basketball Tournament.

Project Details

I would like to have Joel Merkens, a drum set specialist, offer three weeks of master classes on Tuesdays, Wednesday, and Thursdays to help student drummers learn how to play the drum set and also perform with the pep band to show them how to perform.
