Become an Adjudicator
The process to become a Component Board Approved Adjudicator (CBAA) for the Florida Orchestra Association, Inc. has four steps that must be met satisfactorily before an adjudicator is placed on the CBAA list.
- The candidate must meet the requirements set forth by the Association’s Board of Directors to begin the process for becoming approved. The following criteria must be met by the candidate:
- Currently teaching orchestra in the State of Florida, or retired from a school in the State of Florida
- Received 3 final ratings of superior in the last 5 years of teaching in Florida
- Has suggested membership in the Association
- The candidate must attend an initial six (6) hour training class held on the Wednesday before the FMEA Clinic/Conference in Tampa with our lead adjudicators covering the following:
- Philosophy of adjudicating for the Florida Orchestra Association, Inc. b. Expectations of an adjudicator for the Florida Orchestra Association, Inc.
- Procedures for adjudicators at an MPA event
- Instrument being used by the adjudicator
- Choosing to communicate wisely
- Middle School/High School expectations
- String/Full Orchestra expectations
- Sight-reading expectations
- Importance of written and verbal comments
- All work done by candidates will be collected and reviewed by the Committee
- The candidate must attend a designated MPA in your area of the State for a day with a Lead Adjudicator. The dates are set each fall. No remuneration will be given to the candidate for their attendance. The following criteria must be met by the candidate:
- Attend the pre-MPA adjudicator meeting (be early)
- Adjudicate performances with verbal and written comments throughout the day with each one followed up by a discussion with the Lead Adjudicator
- Turn in all adjudication sheets and recordings labeled with their name to the Lead Adjudicator
- All written and recorded work from the initial training session and from the MPA adjudication day will be reviewed by the Adjudication Committee. Once that is completed, the candidate will be notified that they will either be placed on the CBAA list, be asked to remediate a portion of the training, or not be granted CBAA status.
