The Center for Irish Music proposes to expand its arts learning opportunities for students in the areas of early childhood education, music ensembles, camps, and non-music learning opportunities. Success will be evaluated by measuring the number of new classes created and the number of students who enroll in these courses. 2: Through the expansion of learning opportunities for students, Center for Irish Music proposes to hire new professional artists or increase the teaching hours of existing staff. Success will be measured by evaluating increases in the number of instructors teaching at the Center for Irish Music, including visiting artists, and the number of teaching hours provided.
Arts learning opportunities for young children grew with the addition of a new class called Gaelic Songs for Young Singers. CIM's ensemble program grew by 27%. Each term, data from an online class management program was exported, sorted and compared to that from previous years. For this outcome in FY15, we tracked new class and camp offerings, and student enrollment. 2: CIM’s weekly teaching staff grew from 18 to 20 in FY15 due to a 25% increase in private lessons. There was an increase in visiting artists from FY14. Evaluation method was comparing the annual workload of current active teaching staff and number of visiting artists to the previous fiscal year.
