MusicTeacherNotes is a lot more than a music studio management system. For teachers, MusicTeacherNotes has many benefits, including music teacher schedule tools. However, it has numerous features for parents and students, too. For families, MusicTeacherNotes has a feature called the Practice Plan Creator, which lets them turn music assignments into structured practice plans. Students can generate their practice log in pdf format and print it, as well. And there are built-in motivational rewards that encourage students to log their practice. But that means the music assignments must be entered into the MusicTeacherNotes system.
Can teachers use a paper journal? Assignments can be added by teachers or by the families themselves. If a teacher doesn't enter the assignments into MusicTeacherNotes, the families who take music lessons can add the assignments on their end. This means teachers can write the assignments in a handwritten music journal if they wish, and the parents or students can copy those into MusicTeacherNotes.
There is a benefit to the teacher adding the assignments from their end during a lesson. They are in the system. Teachers want all of the assignments for all of their students in the system, so doing it during a lesson ensures that happens.
When assignments are added electronically, teachers can see what a student practiced before they show for their next music lesson. That allows teachers to prepare for the upcoming lesson before the students show, helping students get more out of each music lesson with you.
