    • Evaluate and document the strengths and weaknesses of the music program in each corps to determine the musical aptitude of the participants, as well as the current corps music program and, as a result, develop a teaching plan to strengthen the musical skills of the participants within the corps so that those skills can benefit the corps as a whole.
