    I did a survey a few years ago on where my adults found me (adults make up the by-far largest bulk of my students.) They answer was “online” and the main search engine was indeed “google.” The exact search terms were “________(fill in the blank with name of instrument taught) teacher __________(fill in with your location.) Just thought I’d pass this info on so it can be used.

    Great article! I don’t use the website portion of my MTH very much but am interested in creating tutorial videos for students (especially those with less musical help at home). Do you know if there is a limit to how much space is allowed for videos?

    This is the first article that I PRINTED! I am saving it. 🙂

    Have a great day!

    Many thanks for your kind comment Jean.

    I don’t think at the moment you can upload video directly that can be streamed from your website. I will have to double check that. However you can see how much storage space you have my logging into http://www.musicteacherhelper.com, going to the “Website” tab (top right) and choosing “File Area.” In the top left hand corner it will show your “Available Disk Space” in MB (megabytes). Just divide that number by 1000 for GB (gigabytes) obviously.

    Hopefully in that article you mentioned of mine, under the heading “Adding Video,” you should be able to see how to embed your videos that you’ve uploaded privately or publicly to YouTube (or some other video service). Have a look around my website at http://www.reubenvincent.co.uk for examples (especially under the “Teaching” tab and “Pupils Work” are a few) that might help you. If you need any help just send me a message through my website and I can guide you through the process.

    All the best Jean. I’m looking forward to reading your next article

    Thanks for a very informative article Reuben. I’ve been using MTH for several years and utilize the free website. Although I have my own domain that I have re-directed to my MTH site. I couldn’t help but notice that your domain doesn’t contain the MTH suffix after redirection AND your “announcement” area doesn’t contain the MTH student login. Can you please share how you achieved that?
    Best regards!

    Hi Lesley. I’m not entirely sure why my website domain doesn’t show the MTH suffix. It does when I look at my website from within MTH so maybe check by typing your own domain into a Internet browser like Google and see if it behaves the same. If it’s still a problem, I would login to your domain provider’s website and try some of the settings related to your account and see whether that fixes the problem.

    How to remove the student login from the announcement area: 1-Login to MTH, 2-Go to “Settings” in the top right corner, 3-Choose “Website Preferences,” 4-Select “Hide” from the “Sidebar Login Form,” 5-Press “Save.” I’ve located the student login as a “Child” page to the “Teaching” “Parent” page if that makes sense. Let me know how you get on and if I can help you further Lesley, please let me know. All the best!
