Assessing Your Music Students in the Cloud
Music teachers have been assessing their students since people first starting teaching others how to make music. It is a part of our every day existence. Music teachers correct student mistakes, give advice, and instruct their students about all facets of music making, music fundamentals, and music history in performance ensemble, general music class, music theory and ear training exercises, or in individual vocal and instrumental lessons. Due to the ever increasing importance being placed on quantitative assessment and the need to show student progress, it has never been more crucial to music educators to have tools in place that can help them assess their students, and keep an accurate record of their progress throughout the school year. With the number of students music teachers teach per year, this task can be extremely time consuming and difficult. At MusicFirst, we know how crucial assessment is - especially in this age of standardized testing - and we are happy to report to you that the each of the products we sell can help you implement broad-based school-wide assessment for your music students and your music program.
