Charms is an all in one management system for school music programs.

Pros

Charms was built to meet most of the administrative needs of teachers running music programs. The developers have carefully though through all of the many administrative tasks teachers need to do to run their programs. It has saved me a lot of time having a dependable program to take care of these tasks. I have more time to focus on my classroom teaching practices.

Cons

Their new version has just been released . The learning curve for using it is not insignificant but once you learn how to use it to meet your needs it is worth the effort. Also, the annual subscription fee is somewhat high for smaller music programs.

Charms is a must have!

Pros

Charms has helped to organize our music program of over 300 chorus students. We would be lost without it!

Cons

I have no complaints - it works exactly as described.

Charms as a Student user

From my experience, there wasn't much to love about charms. I see how it could be helpful for teachers, but it's a nightmare for students,

Pros

When my orchestra teacher was unable to make it to school we would have quizzes or chair tests on charms. I hated it. Sometimes we used it for homework and it was the worst. I could never get it to work right. The audio was wrought and sometimes when I was recording it would stop recorded randomly on its own. Charm days were the worst days.

Cons

It was really hard to use and didn't work most of the time. My brother has to use it for band and he can't stand it either. He never wants to do his work on charms. It would stop recording on its own, and was always super confusing to log on to. It was really hard getting into the right class and turn in work.

Charms

Good to use for student trips as it keeps track of payments and sends reminder emails. Not as useful for choral music as it is band and orchestra.

Pros

I like how it is organized, and covers many different aspects of keeping track of students.

Cons

It is sometimes not user friendly (and I am not good with technology in general)

Reasons for Choosing Charms Office Assistant

Because my colleagues were using it and recommended it.
