With proper use of a metronome providing perfect timing, we can focus on building precise technique without trivial concerns that could otherwise be avoided; we can expand the possibilities of our teaching. We are looking for two measurable outcomes. The first being better scores for our competitive season in relation to time-keeping. The second being student satisfaction. Generally, judge's notes focus on areas that need improvement. We often get marks for poor time keeping. However, should we have fewer notes included from performance to performance, that will be a sign that our ensemble has grown. Secondly, a survey will be conducted following the implementation of the new equipment. This survey will be completed by the student membership.
Phoenix Drumline measured the impact of receiving the grant by surveying the membership on their overall satisfaction with the project using rating scales. Prior to the addition of the new sound equipment, members were indifferent towards the already existing sound equipment. After the addition of the new sound equipment, members were greatly satisfied with the new sound equipment. Members reported greater satisfaction with respect to keeping time during rehearsals. The open ended questions revealed students were much more confident in their performance and took greater pride in being a member of the ensemble.
