The Music Department requests student evaluation of the lesson/class/ensemble instructors at the end of each semester.  A quick survey will be emailed to enrolled students with responses due before the last day of the semester.  Participation is encouraged, but not mandatory.

This evaluation can be of significant benefit to the faculty member by identifying perceived strengths and weaknesses in teaching, thereby leading to personal and professional growth. 

In order to optimize sound quality, online lessons and ensemble participation will require the use of an external USB microphone. See our recommendations. Financial assistance is available, if needed, by contacting the Music department at musiclessons@coloradocollege.edu.
