Marching Contest Adjudicator
As a marching band show designer, music arranger, and drill writer, my qualifications speak for themselves.
As an adjudicator, I make a point of commenting on the positive things that are happening in the performance, but I never shy away from the items that need improvement. My constructive criticisms are always delivered in an encouraging tone, and are backed up with possible actions and ideas on how to improve.
A number of band directors have communicated back to me after judging them at a contest that my suggestions have been very helpful, and have actually added points to their scores later in the season.
My skills and experience make me best suited in Music and Effectiveness categories.
