First Impressions Count

March 6, 2024 - By 

MakingMusic.org have been a hugely positive and supportive partner of ChoirCommunity, even from the early days when we had very little in terms of content or members!  As a corporate partner of MakingMusic, we also offer a 15% discount to all MakingMusic members across our entire library of arrangements.

We also think they have a great deal to offer community choirs so we are delighted to highlight one of their latest services – the Making Music Platform.

‘What music do you sing?’ ‘Do I have to audition?’ ‘What are the other choir members like?’ ‘Do you have any social events?’

These are some of the top questions when someone is thinking about joining a choir.

Most people will look online first to see which choirs are in their area. Even if they come across a flyer about your choir in the local library or a poster in the supermarket, they will want to find out whether it will be a good fit and will search the internet for more clues.

Your website gives a first full impression of your choir, so it’s got to work from the get-go. But understandably you’re not running a choir for the sake of making a great website when all you want to do is focus on the music!

So how do you get a better website that attracts new members without having to scour the internet for the most suitable website providers for a choir? Making Music Platform (MM Platform) is specifically designed for leisure-time music groups like yours. We give you everything you need to create your own website, along with help at each stage from a dedicated support officer, plus a forum where you can connect with other music group leaders who are doing the same thing and share ideas on how you’re using your platforms and get the best out of it.

MM Platform isn’t just a website – it includes a cloud-based system where you can organise your choir as well. Manage subscriptions, schedule rehearsals, register attendance, catalogue sheet music, upload documents and make announcements to your members, take donations and run an online shop, which are just some of the functions on offer. The Platform is constantly updated and upgraded – we recently launched the MM Platform app, which allows members to access documents, playlists and sheet music on the go. The best thing is that everything is in one place, for all your needs!
