The goals of the MMBA are simple:

  • To offer a performance outlet to marching bands of all types, including a Festival component (with
    or without ratings) as well as competition in various divisions.
  • To provide meaningful feedback from highly qualified clinicians and adjudicators.
  • To build an organization from the ground up using input from any and all Maryland band directors
    and hand off governance of the organization to an executive board and several committees.
  • To provide all of this at a substantial cost savings to participating bands as well as show hosts.
  • To run a true Maryland State Championship at Towson University to close our season.
