Having a professional looking website helps students feel more confident that you take your teaching business seriously. Your website is often a student’s first introduction to you as a teacher.

Today we added 41 new studio website themes to Music Teacher’s Helper. These themes are available on all paying plans. To see the new themes, or change your current theme, click Website -> Theme/Layout, then click the “Prime Themes” tab.

As we enter the Holiday Season, students are preparing for winter break, studio recitals, and parties. We hope to release dozens of new studio website themes within the next few weeks, as we are currently testing each template thoroughly making them available to our members.

Every week we post new features and fixes on our Facebook and Twitter page. Last month we will also begin posting the features and fixes weekly on our blog, as we are aware that many of you do not use social media accounts. You can also read current blog posts as well as the new weekly updates at the bottom of your MTH home page after you log-in.
