Do you remember the reasons you first became interested a musical profession? Chances are it had nothing to do with the tedious, headache-inducing administrative work that plagues most teachers. At Ututti, we’re passionate about building technologies that enable arts educators to spend more time doing what really matters: teaching and inspiring their students! Using our powerful management applications, you can cut down on the boring, mundane parts of the job while empowering yourself and those you teach.
Ututti is a powerhouse of 21st century technology at your fingertips. It combines a powerful web application with smartphone and tablet apps to introduce your program to a level of organization it has never seen before. Here are some of the key features:
All-in-one application: Ututti manages all the important systems of your program including fees, payments, fundraisers, budgets, inventory, student and parent contact info, student financial accounts, calendars, events, attendance, communication, file sharing, and much more.
Stop dealing with loose papers and documents with our smartphone and tablet apps (available for all major devices such as iPhone, iPad, and Android). Take attendance from the podium, instantly check out instruments and music to students when you’re away from the office, and access parent contact info in seconds.
Each student has a personal account which they can log into in order to see their financial statement, checked out inventory, attendance, grades, and shared computer files. You can even set up Ututti to accept credit cards and e-check payments for student fees!
You can give assistant directors and parent leaders access to specific features of your choosing. For example, your Booster Treasurer can access the financial systems while your Student Teacher can access the student list and attendance features.
Your Ututti Dashboard contains a wide range of charts and graphs that instantly show you important information. See how close your students are to having their fees paid, view your upcoming events, see your budget balance over time, and more.
Apart from seeing your financial data visualized on the dashboard, you can also save these charts as images and use them in documents. This is particularly handy for conveying information to parents/boosters in an easy to read format. Its actually very simple:
Go to the dashboard
Right click the image you want
Click “Save File As” or “Save Image As” to download the file to your computer
Insert the image into your document
Remember, the graphs change dynamically as your data is updated, so be sure to finish any financial work in Ututti before downloading the graphs so they represent the most recent information.

New stuff is always fun, that’s why we’re redesigning Ututti from the ground up. In this major update you will see a new look and feel, some new features, and a much faster, easier to use interface.
In the meantime, this is your chance to let us know if you would like to see a certain feature added or changed. If you don’t use one of the current features, let us know how we can change it to help you out!
We are excited to announce a new student accounts feature that will allow users to manually add transactions to student accounts. Simply click a student’s balance in the student accounts list to add or subtract money from their account. See the video below for specific information:
The Video page has been updated with new videos. We have broken the large tutorials of the past version into several smaller chunks and re-recorded all of the tutorials. This way you don’t have to watch 6 minutes of a video that explains something you need in the last minute.
If you have suggestions for other tutorial videos, leave a comment or send us an e-mail!
We are trying a new support system powered by the web application “Get Satisfaction”. Every uTutti page now has a “Feedback” tab on the right side. Simply click this tab to ask a question, report a problem, or give us a suggestion (or praise). We also added a link to the new support community on our Community page. We feel that this has the potential to help people get answers and share feedback faster, while seeing what others have to say. As always, you can still contact us via e-mail!
