Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Goals for this Residency are: 1. to increase student's ability, awareness and proficiency on their chosen instrument, 2. to inspire students to achieve a higher level of musicianship, 3. to provide all students and adults a deeper appreciation that jazz is entertaining, accessible and available to them, 4. to break down barriers that jazz is old fashioned and/or elevator music, 5. to provide audience members with knowledge about jazz culture and heritage, 6. to provide a high quality Arts event, accessible for all community members wishing to attend. The success of this project will be measured by a program exit survey, feedback from the program director, concert goer's verbal comments and observation of student mastery and enthusiasm. The Exit Survey's questions will include: 1. was a this program a good use of Minnesota's grant monies, 2. was this a high quality Arts event, 3. rate the educational value of this program, 4. did you enjoy the program and 5. how likely is that you would attend another Arts event as a result of attending this program? Space will be provided for written comments. A box of pencils will be available.

Measurable Outcome(s)

No survey included rankings of 3, 2 or 1. Concert goers were asked to rank the following questions on a 1 (lowest) to 5 (highest). This performance may inspire me to attend other jazz events. 4 responses - 4, 35 responses – 5.
