Please consider being a judge! We are looking for 8-10 music teachers to be judges. You will be paid 25,000 krw per hour of judging and provided food. Your duties include giving comments and a rating to each soloist/ensemble. You will not be assigned to judge your own students. This is a great experience to hear music from students at our own member schools! If you're available and interested in judging, please contact me,
