New look, same functionality.

The new design includes the existing functionality you have come to love about Music Teacher’s Helper. While the look is different, all the menu items and actions you perform will be done the same as before. Below is a preview of the dashboard and also an explanation of how the menu, now on the left side, will work.

The new look will work great on tablets, including iPads!

The new design will be responsive, which means the screen will resize to look good on any computer, tablet, or mobile device. We still recommend you use the dedicated iPhone and Andriod mobile apps to access exclusive features such as push notifications, GPS mileage tracking, and audio/video recording.

Main things to know about the new menu:

  • You can minimize the menu by clicking the “hamburger” icon to the left of your studio name.
  • The subtabs show by selecting a main tab and if a subtab has additional options available, you will see that is does by the blue arrow. In the screenshot above, Students is selected as the main tab and E-mail Students is selected as the subtab to show the additional options.
  • The menu size will adapt to the screen you are using, including tablets and all iPad models.

Lastly, your My Account and other menu items previously displayed in the top right will now be available by clicking on the photo icon.

Is the Student/Parent area updated as well? 

Yes! And an announcement has been made on their login screen directing them to a page about the updated design. But if you would like to provide them information about the changes, you may send them the following link about specific design differences for the student: http://blog.musicteachershelper.com/new-design-to-student-parent-area/.

We’ll continue adding in some of the bigger improvements and new features that have been requested, as well as several surprises which we know you’re going to love. Thanks for being a part of our Music Teacher’s Helper family! If you have any questions about the new design, please do not hesitate to reach out to support@musicteachershelper.com
