Assessment of skills and expression in music performance
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this document is to guide students and instructors of music through the process of assessing their performance skill-levels through the use of direct assessment. This project investigates and defines the process of effectively assessing the musical skills, both expressive and technical, of a performer as well as those required to execute a work of music at a high level. The assessments are executed through the use of rubrics specifically designed for each of the three areas; skills of the performer, skills required for the piece of music, and musical expression. This three-part approach to assessment should be used as a means for performers to enhance their practice habits.
