3. Are more likely to complete tasks

4. More likely to stay in KidZNotes next year! KidZNotes Kids... 1. Are more likely to spend their time outside the classroom in structured activity She has more confidence. And I think since the program, she's showed more responsibility. He believes in himself more than he used to. KidZNotes brings the family more together. We're more united. What do the Kids Say? Parent Testimonies "KidZNotes is a central part of my life. I LOVE it!" "I feel very proud to be part of an orchestra!" "I like KidZNotes because they teach me how to sing and play violin!" Marcus Gee "It makes me feel excited!" What the academic teachers say about KidZNotes' students! 1. Are generally more obedient in class
2. Like coming to school
(86% KN vs. 46% non-KN)
3. Are an A or B student in most subjects
(83% KN vs. 34% non-KN)
4. Are a good problem solver (71% KN vs. 40% non-KN)
5. Will ask for help when or she needs it
(86% KN vs. 31% non-KN) KidZNotes not only is delivering high-quality technical instruction—the process of participating in an orchestra is facilitating development of interpersonal skills as well as life skills important for problem-solving and goal achievement. These initial data suggest that KidZNotes students have a good if not great chance of academic success. Further, if such trends continue, participation in KidZNotes may be considered an early indicator of a student’s later academic success. Further Thoughts.... 1. To what extent do families and students “self-select” into the program? How can we reach families that are less aware of our opportunity?

2. Can participation in KidZNotes help to cultivate motivation and commitment in students and can this change in motivation and commitment be observed over time? Is the program working? Is the program making a difference? Generally obedient at home Generally obedient at school A good problem solver Likes to follow

Can a “KidZNotes effect” be maintained over time, even if a student exits the program? How long will students benefit from participating in the program? 4.
