By Our Definition:
"Small" = 45 - 90 majors
"Medium" = 91 - 349 majors
"Large" = 350+ majors
Aspiring music students dream of performing in front of the largest audiences possible. Community members want to attend performances put on by the most talented students possible. Musicwindow helps on both sides.
Nebraska Case Study
Musicwindow was used by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln School of Music in their 2019 recruiting season. They wanted to increase the pool of talent auditioning and they needed to attract, book, and coordinate hundreds of students for precise audition time slots. The impact made to their band program was significant and some of the key benefits were:
• For the first time in the band's history, booking out every section's audition time slots for every day • Highest ever number of applications submitted via audio recordings (a result of audition slots being full) • An essentially zero no-show attendance rate for auditionees • Students joining from more states than ever before
The Detroit Institute of Music Education (DIME) has been a Musicwindow client since 2015. Prior to using Musicwindow, DIME had casually looked at software for its critical recruiting needs but found nothing that offered the right functionality that it needed. Most of the other products were over-priced for the size of their organization. By implementing Musicwindow they:
• Increased the percentage of their website visitors subscribing to their school by over 5X • Attracted a higher number of attendees to their concerts, auditions days, and other events • Reduced the manual work that recruitment staff needed to do to get their prospective recruits the information they need
"The product has clearly provided value, reduced the manual amount of work that we had to do, and improved our recruitment results."

Questions and Concerns
Our admissions office already has tools to handle admissions and enrollment.
Musicwindow is a completely different category than admissions software. As one of many examples, if your piano professor wants to share an invitation to a piano recital with all the piano players who expressed interest, he or she would not be able to use Slate, Ellucian, Salesforce, or anything of that sort to get that word out. Old-school batch & blast CRM tools were not designed to attract and inspire a 17-year-old to participate in your ensembles or study music at your school. Musicwindow can, however, direct more students to your university's admissions website (who wouldn't have otherwise been reached), which Admissions always appreciates. Our product has been built to ensure zero redundancy in feature set and no data that slips through the cracks. Contact us for more info.
Does this tool comply with my university's technical regulations?
Musicwindow has been built, tested, and implemented at over 60 universities (and counting), most of which have strict rules around what technology can be used. We have not had any IT departments reject this tool. Musicwindow adheres to strict industry-standard information security guidelines. A complete summary of our technical specs (most of which is very boring information if you are not in IT) is available upon request. Contact us for more info.
Schedule a phone call by clicking the button below. You will speak to one of our team members over an informal "get-to-know-each-other" style conversation. We will see if your music school and Musicwindow are a good fit for each other. Afterward, we will provide the materials, resources, and information that make the most sense for what you ultimatetly want for your music department/school.
I'm not technically savvy. Can I still use Musicwindow?
Yes. We have many music school directors, faculty, and administrators who have little technical skills who are realizing value from Musicwindow everyday. We get it - you do not have time to learn a new software. We know that for the most part, you are not a technologist or marketer. You are a musician or music educator. Musicwindow does the heavy lifting. The product has been built specifically for faculty and directors who are not accustomed fancy technology.
Who are you guys anyway?
We are a team of music enthusiasts, marketers, and engineers. We have all been performing arts students before launching Musicwindow. From first-hand experience, our team has a unique combination of expertise in the music school industry, engaging Gen-Zers, and marketing.
I would rather wait to implement a solution like this.
If you wait, you will be leaving a lot of opportunity on the table. Every time a prospective student visits your website, attends a performance, walks past your music building, and every time a faculty member does a workshop at a high school, prospective students are slipping through the cracks. These are high quality students, alumni, and community members you want to begin a relationship with. You often only have one chance to be capturing these people and getting them into your network. You shouldn't wait to do this.
