Here's a comment from a voice and piano teacher in Florida:
"I love to teach music but hated the book keeping and
invoices and all the other baggage that comes with teaching in your own
private studio. I currently have 25 active students and more
signing on in the fall and I could not do it without this
program. It has helped me to stay tremendously organized and
I am always hearing from parents and students how professional I
am with the e-mails, reminders, and invoices.
"Music Teachers Helper has taken my studio to the next level
and I am eternally grateful for that. The value that you get for the
price that you pay does not even measure up to all that you
receive. This is a MUST for any private teacher who takes
teaching music seriously and wants to go to that next
"I must say...I love this service. It has helped organize
so many aspects of teaching - my calendar, my notes, my lesson
planning, and my income (making tax time much, much easier
and faster). It is great having a teaching website that I can use to
help with student registration and resource organization. I
am very, very pleased with this service. Thank you so much!"

Tips for Easier Lesson Scheduling
One of the most important benefits of Music Teachers Helper
(MTH) is that students can look up information at their convenience: they
can look up online when their next lesson is, what they did in their last
lesson, what their payment situation is - and if you wish, they can look up
alternative lesson times in case they need to schedule a makeup. At this time of year, teachers
are scheduling lessons for the Fall, and MTH can make that much easier. Who
hasn't had to play phone tag or use multiple emails to schedule a lesson?

Approaches to Practicing I didn't get to practice as much as I had
hoped. Is that the most commonly heard statement by music teachers? Or is
it, I played it better at home! As teachers we often expect different kinds
of practice from one student to another and even different ways of
practicing from the same student, depending what's being worked on and what
the student needs at the moment.
See a list of some of the ways we think about practicing. Do you see it
and/or teach it in any or all of these ways?
Are you finding students online? There are many websites out there that help
students find a teacher. Your Music Teacher's Helper Studio Website also
helps give you a professional on-line presence. Have you had success finding
new students on-line? If so, which methods have worked best for you?
