Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

By participating in Bemidji MusiCamp, 5-12th grade musicians will have an enjoyable musical learning experience culminating in a high quality performance and inspiring future commitment and participation in the musical arts.Students will fill out a paper survey in which they will indicate what they have learned at camp, what they learned from the guest artist, how they have grown as a musician, what they learned that they could teach to their own band, and what future musical engagement they are planning.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Through participant survey, three main proposed outcomes were obtained: 1. For 5-12th grade musicians to have an enjoyable musical learning experience, 2. To produce a high quality culminating performance, and 3. To inspire future commitment and participation in music and the arts were overwhelmingly satisfied. Specific results indicated 100% of the participants learned instrument-specific techniques, 78% found the camp as a very positive experience. Audience rating of the program as high quality reached a 9.49 out of 10, and 90% of the students attending MusicCamp indicated they would continue to participate in future music programs.
