You can now select makeup lesson credits for a sibling of a student when editing a calendar event. This allows you to use the lesson credit of one student for another student within the family.

Here’s a list of other improvements and fixes made this past week:

  • Updated registration page on Studio sites so that notification of a problem with the submission is more informative and easy to understand.
  • Removed irrelevant items from the “Advanced Search” function’s drop down lists.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the Set Attendance pop up box to freeze for random teachers.
  • Added the name of the quote’s author to the Music Staff website theme.
  • Solved an issue that prevented display of the “Start Date” column’s data for some teachers on the “Blocked Dates” page.
  • Corrected display of Blog Posts for some students after logging in to their dashboard.
  • Added “Notes” field content to Mileage tracker’s exported spreadsheet.

Lastly, we are finishing up modifications to the new look for Music Teacher’s Helper, which will be released during the holiday break. There will be lots of information regarding the new look coming over the next couple weeks. Have a great weekend!

What would you do if I sang out of tune,
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song

Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

– Lennon & McCartney

You can’t do it alone.  If you look around you, all the things in your life, from furniture, to electronics to clothes to even books and works of art – none of it was done by a lone genius.

I used to be seduced by this story of the lone creative genius toiling away in an isolated studio somewhere and emerging two years later with…the greatest thing ever!  But, the work of all the famous authors, painters, inventors, teachers, musicians – they all needed a team to make it’s way to us. Van Gogh would not be known without his brother’s financial support and the art dealers and the scholars and the museums who have all promoted his work.   

For years, I tried to do it alone and it was painful, hard, lonely. But, there is a better way and that way is called a mastermind group which I am certain has the potential to change your life.
