FOR ALL ADJUDICATORS Adjudicator Guidelines

  • The adjudicator must hear all of the composition to award a rating.
  • The quality of the performance determines the rating rather than the length or difficulty of the composition.
  • For each performance, adjudicators consider the following: articulation, phrasing, tempo, steady beat, correct pedaling, rhythm, style, composer’s intentions, and memorization where applicable.
  • An adjudicator who determines that a composition does not satisfy repertoire requirements will:
       1) Notify the State Achievement Chair of the violation.
       2) Write a critique with a rating without mentioning repertoire to the student.
  • The decision of the adjudicator is final. The decision may not be questioned by the teacher, student, or parent.
