This has been the best helper for my teaching studio

Value for Money

Pros: 1. Ease of scheduling students
2. Excellent integration of accepting credit cards or Paypal
3. In addition to a web site, I have a blog, all powered through MTH
4. Ability to track finances and create reports for end of year tracking
5. Web site compatible or use one of theirs
6. Blog feature

Cons: When assigning students to a group class, I'm not able to track different fees for different students. Not all my students pay the same fee if they are a scholarship recipient or receiving some kind of discount. I have to do extra work by creating a credit on their account

MTH makes things pretty easy, once the configuration and set up is finished.

Pros: Automated lesson reminders, automated invoicing, bulk email options, lesson notes, integration with online payments, customer support staff, free public website option.

Cons: There seems to be a lot of bugs in the last couple of years. I've used this software for nine years now and I've been quite happy with it overall, but the last couple of years there have been a lot of little things. They usually get fixed pretty quickly, with a few exceptions, but it gets annoying sometimes, depending on where the bugs are.

Overall: Easy to schedule students and track income and expenses.

Pros: The software has everything that I could need in managing my music business. Scheduling, invoicing, student management

Cons: updates take way to long and often leave parts of the system broken. This is a big issue, however, the rest of the product continues to shine still saving me valuable time.

Overall: Saves me time that I need for teaching

Great idea - just needs to work. Too many bugs.

Pros: The online scheduling is very convenient for myself and students. When it is working properly, the billing system saves time and parents can check their balances at any time.

Cons: Too many bugs - and when they affect your billing, it's no longer a useful or trustworthy tool.

Overall: Saves time and makes scheduling convenient.

Pros: Once each student is set up, the software handles scheduling, billing and other administrative functions.

Cons: There are a few small bugs which they are working on, so expect improvement in the future. It took me a bit of time to get my head around billing because we have some lessons which are monthly payment, some by semester, and some pay-as-you go. The support team were really helpful in working that out.

Pros: a very good option when it comes to learning, it is very easy and didactic for all levels, no matter the age or gender, its lessons are quite simple, so you can have automated and complete lessons in your free time or full time , only you decide how much time you can devote to a lesson.

Cons: its best aspect is the price, the price value reason was what helped me to move from trial to full license, the updates are adapted to suit all tastes.

Overall: I am learning to play piano

Good for organizing all about your teaching studio

Pros: It does have many functions to make the work easier and more organzed. Also the panel is so easy to manage and understand that you dont need much time to learn how to use it

Cons: there are few cons i would add, you just have to be a tech fan to find some errors, in general the software is good
