There are many ways to evaluate the progress of each member of the group. Students are asked to write on the white board, perform their homework solo, clap rhythms aloud, complete written assignments and answer questions during game time. During ensembles, each player may be responsible for a different measure or a slightly different part to highlight individual playing.
Students are encouraged to support each other and reach out with questions and answers. Additionally, Piano Lab advanced students are invited to serve as monitors in our beginning classes, providing additional eyes and ears.
