Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

My goal is to take advantage of an opportunity to receive some private instruction from Jason Vieaux while he is in Duluth to perform a concert and other outreach activities for Matinee Musicale. This is a rare opportunity for me to receive feedback on my playing from a high level performing artist. Therefore the "measurable outcomes" shall be specific pieces of advice with regards to my playing technique, presentation, expression, or possibly non-instrument specific things like navigating the recording process and the "business" of classical music. I will evaluate the lesson by documenting what was discussed and how I will apply it to my further playing and performance. I expect there to be very concrete examples to point to, and will provide these in my final report.
