Last week, Music Teacher’s Helper reached a significant milestone: there are now over 1,000 music teachers worldwide who have paying subscriptions to Music Teacher’s Helper! This is in addition to the thousands more who are using the Free Forever plan, enjoying their own studio website, and even more who visit our Music Teachers Blog each month. Our brand new Music Teacher Forum looks like it will be quite popular as well.
As the creator and president of Music Teacher’s Helper, I’d like to thank each of you for your help in making Music Teacher’s Helper the powerful, time-saving tool that it is. It would not be what it is today without your feedback, both in useful suggestions and in expressing how much you love it with your words and your wallets. Thank you!
You may not know that I originally wrote Music Teacher’s Helper back in 2005 to manage my own small piano studio. It was a completely different program back then! It only did a handful of basic tasks, and it also looked pretty ugly. Fortunately, teachers like you saw the value of it anyway, and with your support, it grew, changed, and has become the world’s most popular on-line studio management tool for private music teachers.
And while we currently have a very stable program that does pretty much everything that the majority of private music teachers want, we have no plans of stopping. We will continue to grow, to listen to your feedback, and to provide useful tools and services for you. For example, due to high demand, we recently announced that we will soon be launching a mobile application so you can take Music Teacher’s Helper with you on the road. We’re getting close to finishing the first release, and will be posting more about this on our blog in the weeks ahead.
To stay up to date on the latest improvements and updates, be sure to follow us on Twitter, where we post live updates the instant they’re launched. I want to also remind everyone to check out our Facebook page, which you can “like” to get updates and join in with other music teachers. You can also visit our new Music Teacher Forum to meet other teachers and share ideas. And for those who are finding their studio growing to the point of needing multiple teachers, be sure to check out Studio Helper, which we’ve created for that purpose.
Help Spread the Word!
Finally, if you like Music Teacher’s Helper, please tell your friends and colleagues about us! Send out e-mails, write about it on your blog, facebook, or twitter account, post about it in forums, speak about it in presentations and conferences. I know a lot of you already do this, and I really appreciate it! For those who want a little more incentive, we also have an Affiliate program where you can earn cash by referring other teachers to us. It’s free to sign up, and has the potential to bring you some good recurring income. If nothing else, it could at least help offset the cost of your own Music Teacher’s Helper account.

Thank you again for loving Music Teacher’s Helper! I’m excited to be able to announce this milestone, and look forward to celebrating many more with you.
