I have decades of experience as an adjudicator at local, state, regional and national levels, judging musicians from elementary through collegiate and professional artist levels. My adjudication is quick, concise, and positive. My comments are written with honesty, and are never hurtful. I offer general comments meant to encourage, and point to specific solutions for problems when possible, written briefly, in a helpful manner. It is my belief that each student deserves such an approach.
