I recently had an interview with a transfer student and I wanted to really record my assessment, so I came up with a handy chart to record my observations.
I wanted to see how far they have progressed in rhythmic reading, note reading, chords, keys, ear training and musical terms. It provided me with a great picture of where the student was at and since I recorded it, I can easily remember what the student needs to work on as well.
I also included a section on the student's interest and personality. It was really great to get to know this new prospective student and to discover all the wonderful things they have learned and some of the things I can teach them.
