"What really 'knocks off' my socks are two new features:

1. bar code scanning of inventory, music library, and uniforms, and
2. extensive global email functions

It is simply amazing to see how powerful bar code scanning can be once you have put official tags on instruments and their cases. The global email capabilities can significantly speed up communication with parents and students."

John Kuzmich

"WinBand [and WinChoir] is an easy-to-use set of pre-defined databases for sorting and tracking all band activities. For Band Directors who have struggled setting up their own databases to track all items (and never got around to finishing the job) or for those thinking about computerizing their record keeping, strong consideration should be given to this program."

WinBand© 5.0 is so easy to use that all you have to do is point and click! All screens are designed to be "user friendly" and readily accessible for those of limited computer experience.

There are many advanced features and "shortcut keys" incorporated to help you navigate quickly from one screen to the next.

All the tedious work required to make other databases meet your needs is already done for you! There are pre-formatted reports and labels for just about any aspect of your music program. Data can be sorted in various ways before printing, making access to data efficient and precise.

New in version 4 and beyond is the addition of Bar Code Scanning and Email functions. These two items alone will save you untold hours when doing inventory and contacting students.

New in version 5 and beyond is the ability to use the program in a network, plus many other new features.

You can learn to use the program very quickly and easily. Help screens are available at almost every turn. It's even easy enough for students to help you enter data!

Screen Shots

These demonstrative screen shots are intended to give you an idea of what the programs look like in general terms. The programs do much more than what a simple, static screen shot can convey!

The following is the initial screen you will see when you run the WinBand© program. WinChoir© is very similar.

To view the sample screen shots, click the text on the graphic (such as Student Information, Uniform Inventory, Music Library, etc.).

For the purposes of showing the sample screen shots on this web site, each of the links below will open into a new browser window except the UIL FormsMaster link. For each of the links that open a new window, you can close the new window to return here without losing your spot. The UIL FormsMaster link will replace this page with the Texas UIL FormsMaster program information page.
