LESSONS AND ACTIVITIES
•In music lessons, the students begin the process of learning to play an instrument according to their talents, physical abilities, and interests. We teach to play violin, cello, flute, clarinet, saxophone, piano, guitar, and percussions. The students are encouraged to focus on maximizing their performance on the same instrument during their education.
MEASUREMENT AND ASSESSMENT
The students’ instrument performance is assessed based on the determined criteria and their work process is closely monitored. The students’ class performance is recorded with a classroom observation form and musical assessment form to shed light on the next processes.
