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.



All classes can share class materiels via Mr. Svejda's or Mr. Fredrickson's outbox. Click here for Virtual Desktop and click outbox, Fine Arts, then find your teacher by typing in their name.
