Musicwindow Case Studies

Nebraska Case Study

Musicwindow was used by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln School of Music in their 2019 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

DIME Case Study

Prior to using Musicwindow, DIME had casually looked at software for its critical event promotion needs but found nothing that offered the right functionality that they needed. Most of the other products were over-priced for the size of their organization.

Read how they attracted a higher number of attendees to their concerts, auditions days, and other events while reduced the effort required of their staff.

Blue Ocean Case Study

The Blue Ocean Strategy Entrepreneur Corp (BOSE) used Musicwindow for their 2019 recruitment cycle. They were looking to attract high school students from around the country and triple participation in their competition from the year prior. As a non-profit organization, they had limited funding, limited personnel, and limited resources.

A direct quote from Ted Dacko, executive director, in their first year of implementation: "I was blown away by how well we adopted the technology and how well recruitment went."

I will sing Bandwindow's praises as the best recruiting tool for any bands. I just won't tell anyone within 300 miles of us because I want it to be our hidden advantage!
Andrew Hunter
Associate Director of Bands
University of Texas, El Paso
Bandwindow gives us the maneuverability to build our database of potential members, while at the same time, building a database of fans and potential donors.

Bandwindow is giving us the advantage of collecting interests from hundreds of potential members and then sending them custom-built information before they even leave our booth.

We are at 243 members for next year up from 205. Huge improvement in thanks to your system.
