Have you ever requested that a student buy a certain book and had them turn up with something similar, but not quite right? Or have you waited weeks and weeks for them to find the time to head to the store, while you lose precious lesson time and momentum?
I became so fed up with the situation that I used to supply all of the books necessary for my students, and add it to their next invoice (this can be done using the Music Teacher’s Helper ‘Charge a Fee’ feature). However, the music store closest to me has recently closed down and now the extra time it takes to travel to another store, combined with the large number of students that I teach makes it near impossible to continue to do this. So I have started to explore other options. [···]
