My May blog post for Music Teacher’s Helper.
I’m in my 3rd year of using Music Teachers Helper to schedule all my guitar students. I started with a 5 student basic account (which is free!) and have grown to 20 students. (You can have up to 20 students for only $14 per month.)
3 years ago, I was searching for a way to present a professional image to prospective lesson clients. One reason I chose MTH is because every account includes a super-easy way to design your own studio website! Check out my studio website. It’s definitely helped me attract new students. Another reason I signed up with MTH is because of the lesson notes feature – I can easily keep a log of each lesson so I can monitor every student’s progress. It helps me remember what I taught them last week! MTH keeps track of all the administrative stuff, too: scheduling, automatic lesson reminders, makeup lessons, mileage, income, expenses, invoicing, etc. My MTH calendar syncs with my google calendar and there’s even an iOS app! (BTW, I hear there’s a major iOS app update and a new Android app coming soon!) Tech support has been great, too!
MTH isn’t all about the teacher, though. Parents and students get their own login. Students can check their calendars and log their practice time. Parents (and adult students) can keep tabs on their account balance and they can even book lessons online! MTH supports online payment via PayPal, too!
This is my honest, shoot-from-the-hip testimony of what I think of Music Teacher’s Helper and how it’s helped me grow my lesson studio business. For the music teacher, I can’t recommend their service enough! Feel free to contact me as a resource to find out more about how I use Music Teacher’s Helper.
