Students will each prepare and perform four short excerpts selected by the teacher (no less than one minute or more than three minutes per selection) from their current large-ensemble music, ètudes from ètude books, and/or solo passages from solo literature for their own individual instruments or voices. The excerpts should be of an appropriate level of difficulty and represent at least three distinct musical practices, styles, or genres such as:
o Art song, pop song, and Broadway show tune
o Rose ètude for clarinet, Dixieland clarinet solo, and clarinet solo in Klezmer style
o Classical or Baroque violin solo, fiddle tune, and mariachi song
Students must include at least two examples from their current large-ensemble repertoire and at least one example from outside of their current large-ensemble repertoire.
Students will record all excerpts on a visual/audio recording device and submit them to the teacher via the school’s available recording devices (e.g., audio recording, video recording, digital video recording, etc., as available at your school).
This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.
