As you reflect on the feedback you have gotten and think about where you might turn for future help with your music-learning goals, consider the following questions:
- How easy to understand were the suggestions from each of your helpers? How different were they from the understandings you already had?
- How useful did each suggestion appear to be when you went back to working on your creation?
- How useful do you expect the suggestions to be as you continue to work on this problem or goal?
- How convenient or difficult was it to schedule a session with each person?
- Did each appear to be willing and eager to help? Interested in your problem and questions? Busy or distracted?
- Can your growth as a musician directly benefit any of these people in any way? Can you think of reasonable ways you might "repay" the help?
- Can you think of any other people in each category who might also be willing and able to give you help and suggestions? Does it make sense to extend this activity by also presenting your creation to them? Would it make sense to try some of them the next time you want feedback?
- If you do not seem to have enough people to ask for this kind of support, is there something you might do to build new connections? (For example, could you join a group? Start one? Take a class? Build online friendships with others who share your musical interests and goals?)
