But I think you missed a great deal of my point, and maybe ignored much of what I wrote. I KNOW that the music is important. I have seen many a 1A, 2A and even 3A band march VERY LITTLE for a 5-7 minute show. I've seen some of them stand still for more than half of their show. And they don't have to march. The judges never comment on not marching enough. They comment on music. I'm not downplaying the importance of the music, it is marching BAND as you say. It music is not the most important factor. It is equal. It is also MARCHING band.
