Libby McConnell Piano Teacher
I can't imagine how I ran my studio before subscribing to MTH.
"I love Music Teacher's Helper because now all my records are easily accessible. I have my financial accounts in order, and there are written records of every lesson and lent item. No more disappearing repertoire! With a click of the mouse, I can check how many lessons I've taught, which students have outstanding balances, or how home practice is progressing.
My students' parents love MTH because they now get weekly progress reports, sometimes before the student gets home from the lesson. Communication has never been easier or more complete. I can post audio or video links, as well.
I can't imagine how I ran my studio before subscribing to MTH. Thank you for thinking of everything the private music teacher needs to run an organized, successful studio."

Music Teacher's Helper has literally become my lifeline in keeping all my students and finances intact.
"Music Teacher's Helper has literally become my lifeline in keeping all my students and finances intact. I cannot stress enough how important it is to your business to have an easy, simple, accessible, and secure way to manage all your schedules, client information, payments, and expenses. Doing this all on my own was a nightmare and constituted lots of different spreadsheets and paperwork. I can do it all right here at Music Teachers Helper and it has saved me literally hours and hours of needless work every week.
I have used MTH for about 18 months now and it has literally payed for itself over and over because I get more students due to good recommendations that are a direct result of using this software. All those wasted hours of just trying to manage my teaching schedule are now put into making my teaching more productive, honest, clear, and a great experience all around for my students. None of this would mean much if it weren't for the incredible team of people behind the program that are always responsive, friendly, and most importantly - get the job done.
Thank you Music Teachers Helper, it has been a pleasure to do business with you."

Because of Music Teachers Helper, I feel like I have been given the opportunity to be a better teacher!
"Because of Music Teachers Helper, I feel like I have been given the opportunity to be a better teacher! I was spending so much time keeping track of 40 students and schedules and invoices and payments and makeup lessons. Now I am able to use all that time saved to do what I really want to do -- love on my students and creatively teach them music along the way!
For me, MTH has become more than just an organizational tool for my studio, it has become a symbol of my commitment to be the best teacher that I possibly can in every area of my studio: the organization and the teaching! Thank you, Music Teachers Helper, for being more than just a "helper" for me, but also an inspiration!"

Since joining MTH my billing system is a breeze and my payments are on time!
"At first I wasn't sure about signing up for MTH, but I will never regret it!
I love the huge variety of services on MTH since I can now keep my studio organized all in one place! The lending library was a great help during recital season and I got all my books back, which is a first!
I think my favorite service on MTH is the invoicing system! I used to write out all my bills by hand every month, and with 25-30 students this was a huge hassle and would often not get done on time!
Since joining MTH my billing system is a breeze and my payments are on time!
Thank you so much for providing this service for a busy piano teacher!"

My husband remarked that, aside from buying the piano, MTH is the smartest move I've made for the studio.
"I don't know what took me so long to sign up with Music Teachers Helper. I was keeping all of my records on my computer with a hodge podge of Excel, Word, and Outlook Express. It worked for awhile, but as my studio grew and my family life became more demanding after having my son, I need a central place where my students and parents could go and see everything at once.
I am still surprised at the time it saves me! My husband remarked that, aside from buying the piano, MTH is the smartest move I've made for the studio. My parents are already in love with the lesson notes and I have seen improvement in practicing. My older students love to receive the notes and the ability to log in themselves and see their practice log or calendar events. I've already had over half of my studio sign up for summer lessons and this would take me up to two weeks to schedule in years past!
My favorite feature so far, is the marriage of Paypal with MTH. When a parent pays with Pay Pal, MTH records the payment for me! The icing on the cake is having an easy to maintain website with this high tech accounting feature.
I still can't believe I only pay $24.95 per month! I used to work in accounting and the software they utlized would cost far more with many hidden fees.
I have also been impressed with the customer service and their swift and patient responses to my questions.
I have told all of my colleagues about MTH!"

My studio is now 100%% organized and feels more professional.
"For years, I struggled to find that perfect system to help me in organizing the many aspects of teaching piano and voice lessons. Although I consider myself to be an organized person, I was unable to find a way to smoothly and professionally run my studio. Then, when I came across MTH, I didn't hesitate to try it out -- and I am proud to say that my studio is now 100%% organized, feels more professional, and my students and parents really enjoy it too!
And the best part about it is that the MTH staff is always prompt and helpful if I have any issues or questions. Thanks, Music Teacher's Helper, for helping me to create the studio of my dreams!"

Music Teacher's Helper saved my business and my love for what I do.
"I have been teaching piano for the past ten years, but it wasn't until I graduated from college about five years ago and was launched into full-time teaching that I realized the full job description of an independent music teacher. I knew the method books and the way to teach scales and pedaling and how to create dozens of little Mozarts with wonderful technique, but when it came to scheduling and getting paid, I failed miserably. I would consistently double-book or miss lessons. And if someone forgot their check, I was notorious for saying, "Just bring it next week."
Music Teacher's Helper saved my business and my love for what I do. The calendar makes it so easy to schedule students. The invoicing function ensures that all students know what is due and when. The website feature has helped me to create an amazing web presence.
But I think the two features of Music Teacher's Helper that have impressed me the most aren't any of these.
- First, students are able to log into their accounts and instantly have access to their lesson schedule, see what fees are due, be informed of any studio announcements and if they have loaned materials that must be returned. This in itself, the ability to provide up-to-date information to students anywhere and at anytime, is invaluable and worth every penny spent.
- The second is that all the information on Music Teacher's Helper can be accessed anywhere. I can use it in my studio, at home, in the airport, on vacation in Mexico. I don't have to worry about transferring information or backing things up. It is always there when I need it.
The MTH Customer Support staff is always there, too, answering any number of my questions with lightning speed. No studio is complete without Music Teacher's Helper, and I would recommend it to any independent music teacher, no matter their instrument, background or technological experience. Thank you, Music Teacher's Helper, for helping me to be a better music teacher!"

I don't know what I would do without Music Teacher's Helper!
"Music Teachers Helper has been a fantastic time saving solution for my teaching business!! It has enabled me to streamline and automate almost everything I used to do manually. I get very positive feedback from new students all the time that they choose to come to my studio over others in part because my website and features were so professional and helpful.
Because I am able to do everything more efficiently now, it enables me to spend more time teaching than doing office work and I've been able to take on a much higher number of students with a higher retention rate. The online booking and lesson reminders have lowered absenteeism greatly. I don't know what I would do without Music Teacher's Helper!!"

Music Teacher's Helper has taken my business to a new level.
"Music Teachers Helper has taken the place of a secretary for me. I do not know what I would do with out all the wonderful feature, such as on-line invoicing, record keeping, calendar and web design, that Music Teachers Helper offers me.
I can't begin to tell how many complements I have had on my web page. Everyone says that it is very professional and informative, which is amazing for someone who doesn't have any prior knowledge of web design. Everything about the Music Teachers Helper program is simple and easy to learn. Using Music Teacher's Helper has most certainly taken my business to a new level. Thank you!"

This is one of the best things I've done for my business.
"This is one of the best things I've done for my business. I was having a hard time trying to keep everything organized and this program was a lifesaver.I can now organize all my appointments and billing info in one spot!
One of my favorite things is that my students can cancel lessons, schedule make-ups and pay for lessons all from the site. No more playing phone tag!
I can now concentrate more on teaching and let the program take care of the business side of things!"
