WGAZ Color Guard Education Forum

WGAZ will be presenting an online education forum on the Regional A sheets hosted by Scott Montoya and moderated by Brandy DuBose.

All band directors, students, instructors, staff and judges are encouraged and welcome to attend. The forums will be presented by current WGAZ judges and some of Arizona’s most successful directors with active Q&A sessions around each topic.

This is an exciting virtual opportunity to learn through two lenses: First, discover what the judging community is looking for based on the judging criteria outlined and how to use structural platform to lead you through the design process; from the beginning! Next, learn what successful program directors do to efficiently process efforts, streamline growth and minimize doubt with their strategies towards the various areas of focus without abandonment of strategy; what makes the entire concept click and what are their tips to move quickly in the virtual environment we are all working in currently! WGAZ wants to help bring the process full circle with additional topics of discussion on best practices for preparing for and guiding critique for your group and utilizing the feedback you receive each week during active season to reach your program goals.
