Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The goals of the 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.In the context of a short-term, three-day residency, there are several indicators that The Copper Street Brass Quintet will monitor and stay attuned to evaluate the success of the residency. They include: 1. Students who are engaged – asking questions, participating in activities, and volunteering to play. This is a strong indicator that kids are interacting with the material and processing the information in ways that will be retained. 2. Improved instrumental playing – band members will be more in tune, play together better, and use proper warm-ups prior to ensemble playing. 3. A successful Combined Performance – a full audience, including students and their parents 4. Concert attendance and crowd interaction with The Copper Street Brass Quintet. 5. The primary form of evaluation is from the students themselves. The Copper Street Brass Quintet utilizes a student feedback survey to measure overall reaction to the program, best and worst portions, and to solicit ideas for improvement. This feedback is incorporated into future residency programs. The CSBQ also stays on stage after each concert and invites conversation from audience members. This informal audience feedback is an immediate reflection of their effectiveness on stage. This is also an opportunity to hear from parents and receive their perspective on The Copper Street Brass Quintet’s impact on their child.

Measurable Outcome(s)

My students did a written evaluation after the residency. The evaluation results were completely positive. My classes would like them to come back next year!
