Blend – Quality of ensemble tone
Intonation – Instruments in tune with each other
Balance – Balanced dynamic levels in individuals/sections
Rhythm – Does the band maintain accurate rhythmic pulsation
Precision – Do sections and band play together precisely
Dynamics – Does the band make the most of dynamic contrasts and shading
Interpretation –  The phrasing of music in good style
Arrangements – Is the arrangement suited to the band’s capabilities
Presentation – Does the band communicate well with the audience
Improvisation* – Do soloists add to the general performance

*The improvistation score is added to the final rating only if a judge decides that the soloist or solos added to the selection performed.
