How can MusicTeacherNotes prevent students from quitting music lessons?

Every music teacher wants to get new students, but keeping existing students is the most efficient way to grow a music studio. When a student quits music lessons it creates a void that you have to fill, and that costs time and money. Even worse, a student who gives up music lessons misses out on one of the best investments in their future. MusicTeacherNotes is full of wonderful features to help music teachers retain their existing music students.

The MusicTeacherNotes Library is a feature that allows teachers to save resources to share with their music students. These resources could be videos, documents, images, or website links. Everything in your Library can be shared with your students. Resources in your Library help your students become more skilled musicians faster, and that increases the likelihood that they will become long-term students.

The benefits of using video to help students learn their musical instruments cannot be overstated. Imagine you show a student how to play a song in your music studio. They go home, practice it and come back for their next lesson. They may not quite remember how to play certain parts. Their rhythm may be off.

However, if you record a video demonstrating how to play a song, they can review that video multiple times and learn the song as it is supposed to sound.

MusicTeacherNotes even has a tool that allows students to split the video into segments so they can focus on specific parts of the song they are trying to learn. They can loop the segments to play over and over and even slow down the tempo to play along at a speed they are comfortable with. The result is that students get a lot of highly focused practice accomplished in far less time. This helps them develop their skills faster, which leads to long term students.

Within the Library, there is a section that allows you to save documents and images. Documents could be PDFs, text files, or image files. Examples of documents and images you might want to add to your Library include music theory notes, index cards to learn music notes, finger positions, chord charts, and more. Add anything you think will help you teach your music students. Anything you can do as a music teacher that helps students learn their musical instrument faster can only help them be more likely to stick with lessons.

You can also add links to other web pages to your Library. For example, you might find YouTube videos of someone teaching a song that you teach from the same music book. You could add that resource to your Library and share it with students when you teach it to them. You could create a Quizlet quiz to help students learn music theory and add the link to the quiz to your Library. You might already have web pages on your own website with resources you use. Those could be added, too. It helps you manage your student and helps your students develop into long-term music students.

The Practice Plan Creator is a feature available to students that allows them to create structured practice plans. Students can take their assigned songs and skills, their repertoire songs, and custom songs, and create a structured practice plan from them. The plan will detail how many times or how many minutes to practice each skill, helping them practice more efficiently. This helps reduce the times when parents and children argue about practicing music, which is a common source of frustration for families that leads to giving up on music lessons.

Family accounts include motivational tools to help keep students engaged with music lessons. These fun features are mostly geared towards younger students. Students can earn rewards like Music Bucks, play games, and get Achievement Awards as they log their practice. Younger students typically respond to extrinsic motivation, like games and rewards. This increases the chances that they'll stay with you as they grow older.

Logging practice helps students stay accountable for their practice and is necessary for them to earn Music Bucks and other rewards. Documenting practice time helps students practice more, and more practice leads to students who are more likely to stick with music lessons.

MusicTeacherNotes allows students to see stats about how they are doing. Students can see how many hours of practice they’ve logged, how many songs they’ve learned, and how long they’ve been playing their instrument. When students see how much they’ve invested into learning an instrument it is more difficult for them to give up when something inevitably comes along and conflicts with lessons.

Assessments provide students feedback on how they are doing with a particular song. When a student has a lesson you have the option to assess their skill. You can give them a star rating and provide feedback if you wish. The feedback helps students understand what they need to improve on. The result is they become better musicians and are less likely to give up.

When a student stops taking lessons for a period of time, the retention feature alerts you that the student is slipping away. You can then message the student yourself or have MusicTeacherNotes automatically attempt to get them back into music lessons.

MusicTeacherNotes comes with a powerful messaging feature that allows you to easily send email messages to your students or to their parents. The MusicTeacherNotes messaging system allows you to either schedule messages for the future or to send them right away. You can send messages to one student at a time or to several students at once. You might send messages to students to just say, “Hello!” You could message students about upcoming events, like recitals. You could also message students who have missed lessons for a period of time so they come back again. However you choose to use the messaging feature, it can help keep students engaged with music lessons for many years.

When students' music lessons don't interfere with their other activities, they are less likely to quit music lessons. The Availability Calendar helps students find the most suitable times for their music lessons. Students can review your availability and set up alerts if a time slot opens that they would like. When the time slot opens, it alerts the student, and the student can request the lesson time from you.
