Music teaching apps

Several weeks back, we updated the Music Teacher’s Helper iPhone app to include invoice creation, editing, and printing. That ability will come shortly to the Android app in the next update. The app comes with your Music Teacher’s Helper account at no additional cost. The information syncs instantly to your desktop account, and vice versa. It can be a real help if you’re away from your studio.

Other fixes:

  • Corrected a set of bugs causing inconsistent dates formats on invoices.
  • Allowed saving of file names containing an apostrophe.
  • Made updates for a couple dozen improvements requested by the Quality and Assurance Team.

Let us know if you have any questions by emailing support – support@musicteachershelper.com. Happy teaching!

software for music teachers

Each month, we continue to add features to Music Teacher’s Helper, including the mobile apps.

We are also working behind the scenes on a new look for Music Teacher’s Helper. We will continue to add features every month, but some of the features promised will not be available until the newly designed look is launched, at which time we will continue to add the new, great features to the software each month. While the look and feel of Music Teacher’s Helper will change at some point, adding features is a fluid process that is happening now and will continue after the switch.

A list of requested features is compiled from members through the forum as well as from tickets and phone calls. Please add your input. It’s greatly appreciated by our team. Thank you for understanding and thank you for using Music Teacher’s Helper!

Changes made this week:

  • 34 small improvements and corrections made from bugs reported by the Quality & Assurance Team.
  • Updated security rules to allow educational emails such as “you@city.k12.state.us“.

Summertime downgrade verse Annual Pricing

Are you thinking about downgrading your Music Teacher’s Helper plan for the summer months as a way to save money? We introduced annual pricing a while back to save studios the trouble of having to shift students to former status in order to reach the below plan. Annual Pricing is equivalent to two months free and is available to our long-time members that are “grandfathered” from previous pricing. For Basic plans, that’s less than $12 a month!

Another reason we introduced Annual Pricing is because members wanted to be charged once a year, instead of monthly. If you would like to switch to Annual Pricing, please check out these instructions on how to do so.

Improvements made this week:

  • Updated the Rockstar music teacher website theme for compatibility with file area updates.
  • Updated file area so that folders can be dragged into sub-folders.
  • Upgraded a code library used in Studio Sites to the latest version.
  • Made updates for 29 improvements and bugs reported by the Quality & Assurance Team.

Let us know if you have any questions by emailing support – support@musicteachershelper.com. Happy teaching!
