Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The goals of this residency are to: 1. Provide youth with the skills and tools to take music outside of the classroom and past the printed page, 2. Instill in young people an abiding love of music that results in lifelong engagement on many levels; playing, attending concerts, supporting the arts and teaching, 3. Increase each student’s understanding and skill in music, and provide an opportunity to perform in public, 4. Provide a more comprehensive and in-depth understanding of instrumental technique for brass instruments, 5. Provide a chance for community members to experience live brass quintet music.Goals will be measurable by the number of people in attendance, a show of hands will inform us of the number of guests and level of applause will tell us the performances were enjoyed. Slips of paper with pencils will be on the tables for shared comments.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We had papers available on the tables for comments. Some of them are, “best performance ever,” “Excellent instruction demonstrating violin construction,” “educational,” and “superb violin and accordion performance.” Some of the comments about Mr. Hankel were “extremely knowledgeable,” “educational,” “inspiring,” “learned a lot” and “appreciated the program.” Many stayed after the presentations and asked further questions.
