Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

I will have the ability to compose new music in my home studio and will create at least 6 new original compositions by the end of June 2015 to be performed at two community events in the fall of 2015. The number of new compositions that I write will be measured as well as the number of those compositions that are publicly performed. Community response to the compositions will be collected through informal feedback events and through any formal evaluations collected by those event organizers.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Both new original compositions and updated arrangements of jazz standards were transcribed for three separate musical performances in Minnesota that took place between July and October 2015.
