We are excited to announce MTH Webinars are now live. Live sessions will last approximately twenty to thirty minutes, with a Q & A session following each webinar. Each training session is limited to 25 participants, but a recording of the training session will be available at a later date.
Go to webinars.musicteachershelper.com and signup for a training webinar now. Training webinars include Settings, Student Management, Scheduling, and Invoicing.
Check the page frequently for updates on new days and times, as well as listings for other webinars such as Affiliate Training and Marketing Your Studio. We also plan to have advanced webinars such as Designing your Website, etc.
A reminder and link will be emailed to you one day, and again one hour, before the webinar is to begin.
We are excited to announce the new Blog Feature for your music studio website. Also, your last five blog posts will show up on the dashboard of your parents and students after they log in. To begin using the new blog feature, you will need to first activate the blog.
Activating Your Blog
Creating Your Post
If you select “Create a New Post”, a new page will open, presented with an editor, in which you write up your very first post. After writing your article, you can select “Enable The Post”, or “Disable The Post”. You can also choose to allow comments on posts. Select your choices at the bottom and then select “Save Post”.
To create a post, hover over “Website”, and click on “Blog”. On this page you will see a list of posts you have already created, and two buttons at the top to “Create A New Post” or “Categories”.
Before you begin creating posts, you will first need to create categories to assign your posts. Click on “Categories” and create a few categories that you know you will be using for your posts. Examples for categories you could use are “Recitals”, “Practice Tips”, “Announcements”, or “Instrument Care”.
You are now ready to create your first post.
Your posts can now be viewed by your parents, students, and anyone else who has been provided with the link to your blog (your_name.musicteachershelper.com/posts).
Below are a few features and updates now available or expected to be available in the upcoming weeks.
Website Blog: We are in the testing phase of the new Blog feature, and plan to release the feature soon. When the feature is released, we will send you an email, informing you of the release of this feature requested by many of you.
Simplified Invoicing System: Our programmers continue to enhance and simplify our invoicing system.
iOS Update: The latest Ios app release 1.5.7 is now available for download at the Apple Store. You will need to delete the older version before downloading the new release.

We are excited to announce two student management features, Batch Processing and Student Summary. Many of you have requested these two features, and we heard your requests, and acted on providing these features for you. Both features are available to you in your student management page of your website. Go to STUDENTS > MANAGE STUDENTS.
Batch Processing: You will notice checkboxes next to your students in the Active, Waiting and Former Student sections. You can check the boxes next to the students to move more than one student from one section to another section. For example, If you need to move four students from the Active section to the Former Student section, check the box next to each student, and select the task from the dropdown window above the student list.
Student Summary: You can view all of a student’s information in their profile. On the Manage Students page, you now have a View option next to each student. By clicking on View, the student’s profile will appear. There are now eight tabs above the student profile: Basic Info, Invoices, Payments, Lessons, Upcoming Schedule, Lent Items, Makeup Lessons, and Repertoire. Clicking on any of the six tabs will show the selected information for the student.
These are great and exciting student management features, and we will be releasing more new features for your website in the next few weeks and months. Thanks for your support and ideas, and we look forward to more great ideas from you at http://mth.uservoice.com/forums/116093-submit-your-ideas-here.

Here are the Latest Updates made in March 2013:
Music Teacher’s Helper has begun posting paid advertisements on the homepage of subscribers with the Free Plan. The cost of services spent by Music Teacher’s Helper (including programming and customer support) remain constant, whether the subscribers are on the Free or Payment Plan.
In order for us to continue providing services and customer support (e-mail, chat and phone support) to all of our valuable customers, we have implemented advertisements on the homepage of subscribers with the free plan. Subscribers on a monthly payment plan, such as the Basic, Plus, or Premium Plan, will have an “Ad Free” website and access to the many new Prime Themes.
The Basic Plan is only $14.00 a month, which is an excellent price for having your own website with Music Teacher’s Helper. The Basic Plan includes all of the popular features, customer support, up to 20 active students, and 47 new Prime Themes.
To upgrade your Free Plan to the Basic, Plus, or Premium Plan, click on “My Account” located at the top right corner of your studio website. You will be able to select a plan and payment option.
