How Playing an instrument Benefits your Brain
How to practice effectively
Why is the ability to play a musical instrument important in education?

PERFORMING ARTS DEPARTMENT
LEARNING TARGETS

VOCABULARY - I can use my subject's vocabulary correctly, applying it effectively when discussing my class' performances.

CREATIVE PROCESS - I can clearly define the steps that represent my creative work from conception/first rehearsal to the final performance.

PERFORMANCE - I can adequately prepare/rehearse my performance piece so that the final performance represents my best effort and reflects skills I've learned.

ETIQUETTE - I can clearly express the important rules of performance etiquette as they apply to audience members at a performance, performers involved in rehearsals, and performers participating in a performance with others.
