In order to make understanding the learning outcomes and supporting the students’ learning processes, the contents of the curriculum are categorized by instrument. We believe learning is enhanced by positive emotional experiences related to music and the support of parents. The feedback given to students throughout their learning process will give them the opportunity to not only enjoy playing music, but to also meet their goals and anticipated learning outcomes. The instrumental curriculum content has been built to accommodate improvisation, composition, and accompaniment skills.
The methods central to our system of feedback and tracking our students progress are instrument-specific tables of learning outcomes and digital student portfolios.
