Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

1. Students will be able to follow written and spoken directions and successfully build a dulcimer. 2. Students will produce dulcimers that work and sound accurately. 3. Students will be able to play simple melodies together on a simple one-stringed dulcimer. 4. Students will be able to play simple harmonies and accompaniments to melodies. 5. Students will perform with their dulcimer at the spring band concert. Students will be observed to be sure they are meeting goals 1-4 while building and learning to play their dulcimer during the residency. Goal 5 will be assessed by student attendance at the spring band concert.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Lakeview 5th grade consists of 46 students with varying musical, academic, and physical abilities. All 46 students successfully built their very own dulcimer and all 46 were successful at playing their made instruments. This is a truly remarkable outcome.
