Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

UROCK students will increase their understanding of musicianship, technical skills and business skills, communication and stage presence which will be reflected in their band participation and performance. UROCK will encourage youth to participate in music as a lifelong activity by allowing the program to be accessible, affordable and music driven. Attendance, ages of participants, number of parents involved, hours of rehearsal per band, and audience attendance will all be tracked and recorded to compare each year. Each band will perform for the other participants and faculty and receive an oral critique. All UROCK participants and faculty will participate in a group evaluation at the last rehearsal; students will answer questions such as best part of the camp and what they would like to see changed. This will be recorded and reviewed by staff to plan for 2018.
