Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The John Paulson Big Band residency will improve the students' ability to improvise effective jazz solos and perform jass ensemble music, as well as offer a chance for students to interact with professional jazz musicians in a public concert at the Sheldon Theatre. Pre and post written evaluations on student improvement, project evaluations to the principal and band director and Sheldon staff, recording the concert and listening to select tracks, audience surveys after the concert.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Three clinicians worked with high school jazz students all day March 3-4. The band director noted that this was a rare opportunity to have his students work with specialized professionals. Also, parents and public were highly enthusiastic about hearing the band and soloists perform in Red Wing.
