Bands will also compete in the captions of Individual & Ensemble Music, Individual & Ensemble Visual, General Effect, Percussion and Auxiliary.

2014 Driver's Lounge
Once again for 2014 TMC will implement a Driver's Lounge for participating band bus drivers only. Each band will be able to have a limited number of passes for bus drivers so they will have a comfortable place to relax while waiting. In addition to the lounge itself, light refreshments and a staff restroom are available. The lounge hours will be posted on the door of the lounge. Please note that the lounge will close near the end of Preliminaries competition.
TMC / UIL Classification Update
TMC has updated our band classification to use the 2014-2015 UIL classifications. Beginning with the fall 2014 competition TMC will utilize the same school classifications as the newly implemented 2014-2015 school year classes. We have implemented UIL 1A-6A classification where 1A-4A are grouped together (similar to past competitions). 5A bands will compete against other 5A band and likewise, 6A bands will compete against other 6A bands.
