Don't get me wrong, music is important. I think is should even come first in importance, but it is MARCHING Band. Right now it is 90% music, and 10% marching. I think it should be 60-40 or 55-45.
Great sound and little to no marching or bad marching? that's a 1!
OK music and amazing feet and 40+ pages of drill. meh. 2...
I tell my kids that marching mistakes can and will be ignored if the music is good and music mistakes are unforgivable.
