How does MusicTeacherNotes prevent students from forgetting and missing music lessons?

When students miss their music lessons, it's not only frustrating, it's costly. A time slot that could have been used for another student is wasted. And students who frequently miss lessons are typically those students who are likely to give up on music lessons. MusicTeacherNotes has tools that reduce missed lessons and help you avoid uncomfortable conversations with students about skipped lessons.

Your music lesson schedule on MusicTeacherNotes syncs to your students' accounts. In other words, when you schedule music lessons in your MusicTeacherNotes teacher account, your connected students see it in their family accounts. Students use their Calendars when creating practice plans and logging practice. Their calendars also show them the days their lessons are scheduled and give them the ability to cancel or confirm a lesson.

When a lesson is approaching, students are asked to confirm that they plan to attend. If they confirm it, you know they are aware of the upcoming lesson; they aren’t as likely to forget about it. If a student cannot make a lesson, they can cancel online. This has two benefits. First, it makes you immediately aware of the cancellation. Second, it shows the student your cancellation policy so they are aware of what happens when they cancel. You simply add your cancellation policy to MusicTeacherNotes, and your students see it when they click the "cancel lesson" button. This simple act reduces cancellations and helps you avoid awkward situations because of students who frequently skip lessons.

Being able to communicate quickly and easily with students can help them avoid missing important events and information. For example, if a schedule change happens, you could create some scheduled messages to remind the student of the schedule change so it doesn’t slip their mind. You can also use messages to make students aware of upcoming recitals or other events.

Students quitting music lessons is a constant challenge for music teachers. Typically, a student stops coming to lessons. Sometimes it might be for a short break. However, the short break can easily become a long break, which can turn into them never returning. MusicTeacherNotes’ algorithm recognizes when students stop coming to lessons. It notices that they aren’t being scheduled, aren’t confirming lessons, and aren’t logging practice. When this happens, MusicTeacherNotes alerts you that the student is slipping away and prompts you to try to bring them back. You can bring them back manually or let MusicTeacherNotes attempt to do it automatically.
