Music Teacher's Helper Blog

What’s New in November

As we’re now moving into the holiday season, we hope you’ll enjoy some of our latest updates to Music Teacher’s Helper. Over the next few months, we will be introducing some major improvements that will make Music Teacher’s Helper look more professional, be more intuitive, and be easier to use, especially for those just starting out. We’re sure you’re going to love them!

We may have to take the site down for an hour or two during off-peak times to make some of these changes, so we appreciate your patience as we do so in the months ahead. We’ll keep you posted.

Remember that to get live updates about what’s happening on our website and blog, you can follow us on twitter at

Here are the updates we launched in November:

  • Lending Library is now a real library! Store your entire inventory with quantities, and lend out items from there. You can now also search the library and the lent items.
  • Payment Categories! You can now specify payment categories when adding a payment (ie. Lesson Income, Book Fees, etc.). This helps you categorize your income better. These categories also show up on the Income/Expense Report.
  • Custom E-mail Templates! Create your own e-mail templates that you can send over and over again to students.
  • Invoices now generate PDF’s! Improved the invoice look and feel, and added an Invoice Notification e-mail template, so you can customize the invoice e-mails your students receive.
  • Changed e-mail, website, template, and announcement editor to a more up-to-date wysiwyg editor.
  • If you have a website at your own domain name (, you can now link to it in your Website Preferences.
