Music Teacher's Helper Blog

New Forum and System E-mail History. Mobile app coming soon!

It’s been an exciting month at Music Teacher’s Helper, with the launch of our new Music Teachers Forum, and a number of other features (see below).

We’re also pleased to announce that we’re working on a mobile version of Music Teacher’s Helper, which will work on the iPhone, Android, and other web-kit enabled smartphones. We plan to make the initial version available within the next few weeks. It won’t do everything that the main site can do, but in this first version, you’ll be able to do basic things like list students, transactions, and events. We’ll also be releasing a public API, which will allow web developers to more easily integrate Music Teacher’s into other programs and websites. Stay tuned for more details.

Latest Updates

Here is a list of the latest additions to Music Teacher’s Helper.

  • Music Teacher Community Forum – Join with other teachers worldwide to share ideas and collaborate on topics ranging from method books and dealing with students, to music theory and songwriting, to running and marketing your studio. It’s free! (Read original forum announcement.)
  • System E-mail History! See what lesson notes, birthday reminders, daily summaries, and other system e-mails were sent by the system automatically. View from Students -> E-mail Students -> E-mail History, then click “System E-mail History”.
  • Cancel a Series. You can now cancel a series of events by applying the change to “All Following”.

Here are the bugs we fixed in July.

  • Knowledgebase articles are now working properly on the contact form.
  • The Contact Form on studio websites had some strange spacing issues recently. This is now fixed.
  • Invoice Previews were showing bad dates when E-mailing & not saving in history. Saving in history is now required when e-mailing.

    I am really excited about the release of the Mobile App! I do everything from my Blackberry. Having small kids, I find that it is sometimes…well most times, the best way to get business done when I’m trying to entertain them. I had been thinking that this was one area that I would have suggested an improvement for MTH. Thanks so much!

    Ooops, made a type in my web site address. It is musicteacheronthego.com.

    Brandon,

    I just discovered MTH!! What an answer to prayer – however, I have not been able to login or sign up for the free trial. Everything I click on takes me out of MTH site and says the page is not available (404).

    I have a whole day free tomorrow to work on my studio – I desperately need to start with MTH
    asp – can you help me out? I can’t tell whether the glitch is in my computer or something with your website. Please contact me asap so I can get MTH going – my lessons start in 10 days!

    Sincerely,

    Lisa

    I am REALLY looking forward to the iphone app. Can you give me a date of when this is going to be available? This is going to be a huge help to me. 🙂 Thanks!

    Hi Allison, we just launched the app a few days ago. It’s not a native iPhone app, but is a mobile app you can access through multiple types of phones. You can also create an icon on your iPhone home screen to access it through Safari. Read more here: https://blog.musicteachershelper.com/mobile-app-for-music-teachers-helper-is-live/
