About Ratings for Music Students at the River Ridge School of Music and Dance


Ratings apply to our music students and are used to assess weekly lesson performance. Instructors will note the ratings within the students' assignment notebooks along with detailed commentary on how to best prepare for the next week's lesson.


Students who receive three ratings of "Superior" from their instructors within one month will have their names posted on our electronic bulletin board system within the school lobby!


The purpose is twofold:


1.) Strong positive motivation for students' improved performance.


2.) Weekly communication between parents and instructors regarding progress and expectations.


Ratings also serve as an aid in determining annual recital awards. Each student and parent is given a detailed explanation of the standards required to receive the highest ratings. Ratings are optional, however, should their use detract from the joy, enthusiasm, and love of the music.
