First and foremost, Bands of America Championship are educational events. Learn how the performances are evaluated and scored, and what the judges are looking for.
Bands receive recorded evaluation and scoresheets from each judge. The emphasis is on the input the judge offers to the band’s program. It is the position of Bands of America that music is the more important aspect of the performance, with marching as the presentation and visual enhancement of the program. Likewise, greater emphasis is placed on general effect than on fine-line perfection of the performance. The weight of the numbers places 60% of the value on music and 40% on visual, as well as 60% on general effect and 40% on performance. Each judge is assigned a specific area on which he or she focuses: ensemble and general effect judges are located at a vantage point from above (e.g., press box), and individual performance judges are located on the field.
You can see more information on the judging and score breakdown here.
