What are Push Notifications?

Similar to text messages, push notifications are great for sending parents and students timely and relevant information, whether their app is running in the background or inactive. Push notifications are free for both student and teacher. 

music teaching apps

How Does it Work?

Students must install the Music Teacher’s Helper app from either the Apple or Google Play Store and open it once to allow notifications, but it’s not needed to be open to receive notifications. There are currently three types of notifications available and are described below.

Event notifications (Teacher and Student) 

This type of notification is currently for lesson reminders. We will be adding other notifications for this type consistently over time.

Payment notifications (Teacher Only)

You can receive a notification when a student or parent makes a payment.

Announcements Notifications

Send announcements right to the home screen of your students’ mobile device using this notification type. This currently sends in real time only. However, we will be adding the ability to schedule Announcements soon. Also, note that only students who have installed the app and accepted notifications will be present in this list.

Simply go to the Students Tab and you will see the new Push Notifications Subtab.

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.
