- Perform pieces such as Barat, Introduction and Dance or comparable solo literature
- Sight Reading First Year Level Material

Outcome Assessment Strategies
Methods used to evaluate student progress and the criteria for assigning a course grade should be made clear by the instructor at the beginning of the course. The individual instructor will determine the method of assessment. Assessment methods may include:
