Dorian Business Systems, Inc.

was founded in 2001 to create the Charms Music Office Assistant (as it was then known). Charms was conceived to fill a need - music teachers needed a better way to manage and organize their libraries, student records, inventory, and parent communication. After a full year of development, Charms was beta tested in the fall of 2001 and released to the public at the Texas Music Educators Association conference in February 2002.

Interest in and adoption of Charms grew and development continued. Today the Charms Office Assistant (renamed in 2009) is recognized nationally as the premiere web-based software for all fine arts teachers, with nearly 7000 active schools, over 35,000 active users, and close to 2,000,000 student records.

Dorian developed the TexasMusicForms.com program in 2004 to help the UIL Region Secretaries organize, schedule, and manage their UIL events as well as enter ratings and prepare state reports. Today, every secondary music teacher in Texas either uses the TexasMusicForms.com program or Charms to prepare and submit their contest entries.

Success with the Texas UIL system led to interest from other state organizations. In 2005, Dorian developed the Illinois RNS (Registration, Nomination, Selection) system. Since then we have provided management and scheduling systems for the NYSSMA festival process, the Connecticut MEA, the Michigan School Vocal Music Association, Alabama Bandmasters, and more.

Dorian also created the very popular PT Avenue software, used as the official PTA software in Washington, New Jersey, and Texas as well as in most of the other states. We also created Festival One, a program to manage and schedule student entries for independent music teacher organizations.

We are a small, family owned company based in the Dallas, TX area. All our software solutions are coded in-house with very minimal outsourcing. We provide top notch technical support. We don't accept advertising on any of our products, and do not use any invasive tracking mechanisms.
