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.

An all in one tool

Pros

This software has many features and tools inside of it useful for organization and learning musical instruments. Useful for teachers and students.

Cons

The things that stand out as cons are the expensive price and there is quite a learning curve.

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

Because my colleagues were using it and recommended it.
