Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

My main goal is to develop stronger ensemble playing skills. By attending rehearsals, masterclasses, and lessons I will obtain insight and new ideas from my expert peers. After this experience, ideally, my listening skills will be better, making me an overall better performer. To demonstrate this growth, I will record my individual practice before camp, I will record the first time my ensemble group plays together. I will then provide recordings of my ensemble after one week of playing together, and a recording of our final concert.

Measurable Outcome(s)

I recorded myself sight-reading/ learning the two pieces and my group's first time playing through each piece and the performances. With these I could compare the group's musicality and togetherness and what we improved on. The areas I focused on were phrasing, tone, speed, and overall execution. I listened to the recordings, took notes on areas of concern, and focused on these areas when practicing alone and with my ensemble.
