Evaluating music and performances is a necessity music educators must posses in order to properly assess how the progression of our ensembles and students are doing. Essentially when our ensemble plays a concert, or a student plays a solo, it an assessment of how well the students has learned and acquired new technical abilities, a way to measure how well the student can grasp or understand the new technical abilities. Once the teacher has evaluated the performance whether good or bad, we can then give the proper feedback to the student’s performance. This well be a good chance to have one of the “teaching moments” so this way the student knows what to do next time.The below links are my Teach and Student units, in which a analyzed or evlauated if will, the techniques of how to play this piece.
