TMAA Ad-Hoc Marching Band Adjudication Sheet Study Committee

TMAA has formed an Ad-Hoc committee to study UIL Area/State marching band adjudication sheets. When the study is completed the recommendations will be submitted the state UIL music office for consideration. The intent of the study will be to draft an evaluation tool that recognizes the continued evolution of the marching arts in Texas, while continuing to acknowledge the diversity of the marching styles across the state.

TMAA Marching Band Judging Sheet Survey is now closed.

Texas Music Adjudicators Association Sight Reading Revision Committee (SRRC)
TMAA has formed a committee to study the current UIL sight reading processes used in band, orchestra and vocal evaluations (contests). This committee consists of the members of the TMAA Executive Committee (which represents all divisions) as well as two members (one middle school and one high school) from each division. The committee’s purpose is to consider ways to simplify the sight-reading procedures used at UIL evaluations in order to make the process more closely resemble how a group would sight read a piece of music in a normal classroom setting.
Any proposals submitted to UIL by the Sight Reading Revision Committee will require approval by the TMAA Executive Committee, the UIL Music Advisory Committee, and the regions throughout the state before any changes are implemented.

The TMAA Sightreading Committee Survey is now closed.
