Abstract Just as in other subjects, student growth in music is measured based on a number of factors. Based on the data collected from twelve music teachers ranging from grades kindergarten through twelve, I discuss the most frequently utilized factors and approaches employed by music teachers to measure student growth in the classroom. In addition to the inclusion of components such as rhythm, tone, scales, and sight-reading, music teachers made use of both a formal, individual, one-on-one observational approach, as well as an informal, “on-the-fly” individual observational approach within a group. Tacit knowledge along with professional expertise, in conjunction with individual experiences of both the teacher and the student established the framework under which student growth is measured. The findings suggest a potentially unique interaction between teacher and student where student growth is measured differently for each student-teacher encounter.
