Features and benefits

Partners are really pleased and feel it’s a great way to tell people about all the opportunities in Surrey. Hugh Craig, Make Music Surrey

Great value for money

TouchBass was commissioned by Gloucestershire Music on behalf of Make Music Gloucestershire, the county’s music education hub, so the development costs are paid for. It’s now being offered to other hubs at a quarter of the original price because it makes sense! None of us want to waste hub funding or reinvent the wheel.

A quick win

People offering music making or learning opportunities add their information to the tool by clicking on the ‘ADD’ button. All you need to do is embed the app in your website, and promote it through your usual communications channels.

Easy for people to add their services

They just fill in a basic online form and can add Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, SoundCloud and Instagram links, like buttons and feeds as well as Google maps.

Easy for people to use

They simply click on ‘Find’ and then use the drop down options to narrow down what they’re looking for.

Quick approval process – build your community quickly

When you log in to the admin area, you’ll see all the entries that are ‘pending’ and those that are ‘approved’. Simply click on those pending to view them, make any edits if you need to, then click on ‘approve’. You can then also download entries – including email addresses – as a database.

Totally flexible back-end system

Easy for you to tailor to your own options. All of the fields you see on this TouchBass version can be edited, deleted, or new ones added in the online admin area. In this version, people can search by type of service (eg from tutors to rehearsal spaces), type of instrument, genres, specialisms, type of group, how often, type of activity, location and age range.

The opportunity to shape the development of TouchBass

If there are functions that you would find useful, the chances are others will, and we’re happy to adapt TouchBass to continue to make it better

Social media-friendly

Feeds and like/share buttons make entries easily shared on social networks.
