We are excited to announce that this Saturday evening, January 23rd, the new Music Teacher’s Helper will go live!
Please note: If your display looks off, Hold CTRL + SHIFT + R for a power refresh of your browser. The new design includes the existing functionality you have come to love about Music Teacher’s Helper.
The new design will be responsive, which means the screen will resize to look good on any computer, tablet, or mobile device. You can minimize the menu by clicking the “hamburger” icon to the left of your studio name. The subtabs show by selecting a main tab and if a subtab has additional options available, you will see that is does by the blue arrow. The menu size will adapt to the screen you are using, including tablets and all iPad models. Lastly, your My Account and other menu items previously displayed in the top right will now be available by clicking on the photo icon. We’ll continue adding in some of the bigger improvements and new features that have been requested, as well as several surprises which we know you’re going to love. The new design will be responsive, which means the software will function and look great on any computer, tablet or mobile device.
New to the Music Teacher’s Helper Mobile Apps, you can now access the file area, record audio and video, upload, and create new folders with the app.
Your students can also now record practice sessions in audio and video, save, and it automatically uploads to your file area in a sub-folder with the correct permissions.
We are excited to introduce the Music Teacher’s Helper Android app, now available in the Google Play Store. The Android app allows you to do many of the same functions as the web app version of the software. Easily add, view, or edit student information and call, text, or email them from your phone. Add mileage right from your phone before stepping out of your car (make sure to park first!). We also want to know what features from the site you want to see in the app next, so reach out with your vote. We’ve sent an update to Apple with iOS8 updates, bug fixes, and improvements including the time format update. We know you are busy teaching eager music students, but if you haven’t already, please leave the app a review. The Android beta testing has begun and we look forward to a public beta within the next two weeks.
We are proud to announce that the newest update for the Music Teacher’s Helper iPhone app is now available in the iTunes App Store. The iPhone app allows you to do and view most functions as the web app version of the software. Easily add, view, or edit student information and call or email them with one click from your phone. Add mileage right from your iPhone before stepping out of your car (make sure to park first!).
We are finishing testing for the initial Google Play Store release to support Android devices. Founder and CEO of Music Teacher’s Helper, Brandon Pearce, started teaching piano when he was sixteen years old. Other private music teachers saw the benefits of using the software Brandon had created for himself and asked to use it too. From its humble beginnings in 2004, Music Teacher’s Helper has grown into a comprehensive studio management tool, spreading to over 14,000 teachers in 40 countries. Today, the company has over 25 team members, eagerly serving current users and working hard to play a part in the success of each and every person that uses Music Teacher’s Helper.


Music Teacher’s Helper is dedicated to continue listening to our users, improving products and services based on that feedback, and helping them achieve their goals.
A complete redesign of the software taking into account everything we’ve learned in the past ten years, including feedback from teachers and their students with several upcoming surveys. Music Teacher’s Helper will become more than software and is nowhere near finished making our products and community the best it can be. To celebrate Music Teacher’s Helper 10 year anniversary, we want to thank the people that have supported us and helped create the amazing community we have today. Our support team consists of music teachers, like you, who also use Music Teacher’s Helper in their own studios. Over a hundred years ago musical pioneers created a phenomenally popular musical style – jazz!
Judging by the number of children entering the classical exams each year, it’s clear that children can be interested in whatever kind of music their teachers recommend.
Of course, classically trained teachers do have the advantage that they can tell pupils how to play each piece appropriately for the chosen composition style to make sure no marks are lost, and this works well for how current exams are structured, but what about the one, very important element of jazz which is different from the elements of classical music – improvisation? Improvisation is believed to be a spontaneous moment of sudden inventiveness and, in reality, it has been around for as long as music exists.
Here is a quote by Snake Davis who is a great authority on all things jazz: “I’m an improvising musician. Not wanting my pupils to miss out on such an important musical experience I felt that as a modern classically trained teacher, I should be able to cross boundaries to provide a balanced education to my pupils. If you’re a classically trained teacher and you find yourself confused as to whether to introduce improvisation to your pupils or not, you could find the following improvisation Exercises very useful as a start. Remembering that every crotchet consists of two quavers and we are getting ready to ‘swing’ them, tap the rhythm on your thighs and count aloud one and, two and, three and, four and.  Get your pupil to start slowly and repeat each exercise until they are ready to move on to playing. The blues scale is very special and if you play the notes from it you create a ‘blues sound’.
Transpose the exercises into any key and let your pupils use them for different pieces or just for enjoyable practice. Get your pupil to start practicing by playing the entire solo, repeating one bar from the notation exercise in the right hand. Certainly, jazz improvisation can be a little tricky initially and not everything will come easily.
I am very grateful to all who took part in the lively discussions on the Facebook piano teachers forums, made suggestions and offered their opinions on this highly interesting and often controversial topic.
Elena Cobb is a classically trained and highly experienced pianist, teacher and composer and she believes that ’the child who is stuck in front of the music is an unhappy child’.
Elena believes that general process of thinking can be improved by adding jazz and blues to the traditional repertoire. While the look is different, all the menu items and actions you perform will be done the same as before. In the screenshot above, Students is selected as the main tab and E-mail Students is selected as the subtab to show the additional options. And an announcement has been made on their login screen directing them to a page about the updated design. While the look is different, all the menus items and actions you perform will be done exactly the same as before. Free to download and use, this brand new app compliments the Music Teacher’s Helper web app. That will be the quickest and easiest way to get the newest features and any fixes implemented for your apps. This is done by clicking the App Store icon, searching Music Teacher’s Helper, clicking our green logo, then Reviews, and Write a Review. A lot of thought, resources, and testing from current users went into this completely redesigned app that compliments the Music Teacher’s Helper web app.
He soon realized he needed a better way to keep track of the finances, lesson progress, and schedules for his studio. We hear every week from users how the software has saved them time, money, reduced their stress, and increased the professionalism and organization in their studios.


Like a completely redesigned iPhone app launching this month & Android app coming shortly after! Exciting, rhythmic, harmonious, colourful, toe-tapping and ear-catching, jazz had it all – and people loved it! Improvisation was not willingly added to the classical musical scene and it is not an element that exists in our current musical exams.  But – why not? But, however malleable the pupils might be, teachers tend to believe that you need to be a specialist to teach jazz. Yes I read, yes I learn parts by ear and repeat them, but I am most happy when I “shut my eyes and blow”.
So I wrote and published ‘Higgledy Piggledy Jazz’ for young pianists, which, unlike normal jazzy piano books (which don’t have improvisation sections), includes elements for young pianists who have plenty of enthusiasm for improvisation.
There are both rhythm and notation exercises and you could practice them with your pupils from memory or by looking at the sheets associated in this magazine with this article.  Hopefully, you’ll find the exercises logical and easy to remember – and it will be fun for both you and your pupils. It would be most suitable for a pupil already working on Grade 1 (and above) classical piano. She composed jazzy, child-orientated tunes for her piano pupils to increase their pleasure and inspire them to practise at home – and they loved them!
Below is a preview of the dashboard and also an explanation of how the menu, now on the left side, will work. If you do not have an active Music Teacher’s Helper account, you can sign up for a no-risk trial here.
Your students can also use it to record practice sessions (with a built-in timer) and check their lesson schedule and payments.
We are excited to get the app into your hands, yet we understand it may not be perfect immediately. This helps with our rankings and allows more teachers to find out about our great community. Shortly after entering college to study computer programming, Brandon created a tool to help him do just this, with no intention of turning it into a business. Besides watching how excited pupils become playing jazz tunes and how fast they learn to play them, would it be a stretch too far to say they would also be happy to include improvisation in their musical learning? They think that children who are eager to focus on it, need to learn sophisticated bass lines and intentional dissonances under the watchful eye of an expert and it isn’t considered to be something that an untutored teacher can offer – disappointing news for the average child. But, somehow, it didn’t make it into the books we use today and it seems that only jazz musicians carry on the tradition.
Make sure your pupils memorise this colour usage and when they’re playing, make sure they count the bars (as below).
From bar 15 you’ll notice that your pupil has the chance to play what they’d like with their right hands – they can play it as it is or they can use that space to improvise and make it into a solo. Able to understand the issues for both child and teacher, she has created an approach which is developing children’s eye-hand co-ordination and muscular memory, eventually enabling those tasks to become easy and carried out without conscious effort. We would appreciate it if you let us know of any bugs, or anything we could create in the app to help you manage your studio better, and save you time every day.
And, as well, it had something new; something that classical music had never had – it had a swing!
Tell them to remember that they are improvising and what they thought was a mistake could well be a real gem of a find!
And finally, like a pro, get them to create a fantastic ending by adding pedal to the last chord and playing it on tremolo. I love teaching it, de-mystifying it, I call it “making stuff up” rather than “improvising”.
