The goal of these assessments are to ensure that students review and prepare for this upcoming performance appropriately. It is never fair for one student to work very hard to prepare say "Go Tell Aunt Rhody" for the performance, while the student next to them barely remembers how to get through the piece. Last December, I was incredibly impressed with the high performance caliber of our Department recital. As a Suzuki faculty we agreed that these playing tests offer a good tool for performance preparation. Please place extra emphasis on the Dept. Recital Review list, and make sure that your child is prepared to play all of the pieces (up to their current level) for their group class instructor.
We will use a score sheet to evaluate each piece. Students much achieve at minimum a 7/10 on any given piece in order for them to perform it at the Dept. Recital with the group.
