Contest Judges especially like because much of the data entry has already been done before they ever meet their student performers. By having the music teachers enter their own students’ data, the judge is able to focus on the performance, entering their comments, and deciding the overall score.

Each contest may select custom judging rubrics for Solo performances (and these may be distinct from the Ensemble performances – see the Ensemble Evaluation Form).

An image of a typical Solo Evaluation Form is shown below, with three custom rubrics: Tone, Technique, and Musicianship. The (dismissable) information bar at the bottom of the Comment Area describes the definition of the rubric.

The tab labeled My Notes is a text scratchpad in which Judges may keep common phrases they can copy and paste into their evaluations. For example, “Thank you for dressing nicely today.” or “I can see you have practiced hard on this piece.”
