Flexibility is going to be the key to success for music programs in this new age of in-person, virtual and hybrid learning, social distancing, masks, and the ever changing rules and regulations. Directors are going to have to be more agile than ever before; students & families more flexible. Having an effective platform to communicate changes and updates to your music ensemble or group is going to be more important than ever. Cadenza websites come with built in features to help music programs effectively keep communication organized and in a central location for everyone to find.
Cadenza’s News and Communication Tools
Emails, texts and apps like Remind are great for instant messaging, but these can get missed or lost in the sea of messages being sent daily. Plus, they aren’t ideal platforms for lots of details, which is usually essential. By posting your music program’s updates online at a central location, everyone assured to be able to see the information in its entirety, without missing a text or a reminder. Cadenza’s website management tool makes it easy to add news, landing pages, photos, audio clips, downloadable documents, surveys, embedded videos and more.
Cadenza’s Events Calendar
It doesn’t look like we’ll be printing the calendar and sticking it on the fridge this year! Event dates are changing, being postponed, or just outright cancelled. Knowing when to be at events, rehearsals, and concerts has always been tough to keep up with for members, families, & fans. In these days of frequent changes, it’s going to be even harder.
Just like your website’s News feature, you’re going to need a reliable Calendar feature for members, families and fans to keep up with what’s going on in your program. Cadenza websites allow members to have an integrated Calendar feature on your program’s website which is easy to update and easy for viewers to find the information they need. The Calendar feature is searchable and allows users to filter by different groups and ensembles as well as by different types of activities. Individual Event Pages in the calendar views can also include greater event details, location maps, online forms and even embedded media. Events can also be imported from iCal or Google Calendar.
A Cadenza website will help you control all of your program’s important information in one, integrated place, making it easy for everyone involved. Things are complicated enough! Keep things simple, and keep everyone in the loop by using your music program’s single, most important resource, your website, to its fullest.
