Create Your Own STOMP Performance

Create Your Own STOMP Performance

Students will be placed into groups of four or five and will work together to create their own STOMP-inspired group percussion performances. The teacher should assign groups prior to the assessment in order to ensure that each group has students with varying musical backgrounds and experience.

In Part 1, students will assemble in their groups, gather objects to be used as instruments, and begin to create their performance. In Part 2, students will continue to create and rehearse their performances in their groups. In Part 3, students will perform their creations in class. Students will complete a reflection worksheet in which they reflect on their experience of creating a group percussion performance and preparing it for performance.

This is an analytic rubric. The column on the left shows the dimension that is being measured in the student’s performance. The levels across the top row indicate the performance level in the dimensions. Occasionally all dimensions and performance levels are exemplified by multiple students in a single recording.
