The ratings are determined as follows:
Rating I – (Superior) An outstanding performance, with very few technical errors and exemplifying a truly musical expression. This rating should be reserved for the truly outstanding performance.
Rating II – (Excellent) An unusual performance in many respects, but not worthy of the highest rating due to minor defects in performance, ineffective interpretation or improper instrumentation.
Rating III – (Good) An acceptable performance but not outstanding. Showing accomplishment and marked promise, but lacking one or more essential qualities.
Rating IV – (Poor) A poor performance showing many technical errors, poor musical conception, lack of interpretation, incomplete instrumentation, or lacking in any of the other essential qualities.
Rating V – (Very Poor) A very poor performance indicating deficiencies in most of the essential factors.
