What is Fluency?

Fluency is the ability to perform a skill quickly and accurately. Fluent performances lead to retention, endurance and application of learned skills. 

Fluency is also an indication of mastery of a skill. Our program is based on mastery - students move up in difficulty levels when they have mastered (become fluent in) the skill they are working on. 

 

You can see and hear fluency.  Fluency is the difference between an expert and beginner, between a real useful skill and a lifetime of struggle. Much like how muscle memory works with sports and musical instruments, fluency in foundational skills opens up avenues for higher order work because they begin to feel “natural.”
