Written in-conjunction with Mortimer Rhind-Tutt, Senior Music School Master at Millfield School in Somerset, the system has been written by Music Master Specialists with a passion for music.
The philosophy behind the development of the MSM system has been the same as that for all CJM software: usability and flexibility, and always tested at the sharp end, in school.
This is not just an administration system, but also, an active management system for every aspect of a music school. It provides relevant information for teachers and music administrators alike in the format that they want and need to see it.
With key members of the development team having direct experience of running a music department, this has directly influenced the design of the system to ensure that it covers all the key areas that a Music School Master would need to run a Music Department and much, much more.
Whilst we can describe the system in some detail, the ease of use and the flexibility only really becomes apparent when you have a look at the system.
Call us now on (01452) 857991 to arrange a full demonstration or contact us for more details through the contacts page of the web site.
