Freedom For Musicians is well into changing the world of “Notes”.
Seems to be an affair of the heart where you are pouring in everything you have. And the results are coming through load and crystal clear.
Amazing how proud you should be the emotions behind which are like music to my ears.

What an amazing site!
I love the energy of it! I am not a musician myself, but I do love music. Your site is easy to navigate and it’s easy to find everything I was looking for. The best thing is I have found some new music that I really love – the artists are amazing and I’ll be keeping a close on the updates! I look forward to checking through more of some of your amazing music. Thankyou!

Thanks for providing a fabulous platform
As a musician myself I really love what I’m seeing here. I don’t perform professionally any more but did so for many years with my partner. These days we still write, record and play and are in the process of creating an archive website for our back catalog to live on. We were slogging away way before Facebook, Youtube and all the other social platforms existed.
A Quiet Revolution
Freedom for Musicians seems like a really innovative concept for musicians to promote and distribute their digital music. I admire the work you are doing in this industry to solve the problem of exploitation by the big labels and distributors. I look forward to seeing the success of Freedom for Musicians.
At FFM, we want to highlight new and aspiring musical talent wherever we find it and where better than the many Music Colleges, Universities and Schools around the world. Our new feature ‘Spotlight on a Music Student’ is an opportunity for you or someone you know to step into the spotlight and share your talent, dreams and ambitions with the musical world.
All you have to do is send us your information, pictures, videos, sound clips and links and we will compile your feature.
Pat Shelby teaching a group lesson for beginning guitar.
3 years ago, my music lesson business wasn’t doing so well. I needed help in keeping my teaching schedule organized. It’s not a good feeling when you’re out running errands and you get a call from a student/parent telling you they’re at your studio for their lesson and they’re wondering where the heck you are!
I had trouble remembering what I taught each student from week to week. I needed a way to step it up and keep myself organized! Then I found Music Teacher’s Helper!
One reason I chose MTH is because every account includes a super-easy way to design your own studio website! It’s very functional and definitely helped me attract new students. Another reason I signed up with MTH is because of the lesson notes feature – I can easily keep a log of each lesson so I can monitor every student’s progress. It also helps me remember what I taught them last week!
MTH keeps track of all the administrative stuff, too: scheduling, automatic lesson reminders, makeup lessons, mileage, income, expenses, invoicing, etc. My MTH calendar syncs with my google calendar and there’s even an iOS app! (BTW, I hear rumors of a major iOS app update and a new Android app coming soon!) Every time I’ve needed tech support it has been fast and courteous.
MTH isn’t all about the teacher, though. You can give parents and students their own login to your website. Students can check their calendars and log their practice time. Parents (and adult students) can keep tabs on their account balance and they can even book lessons online! MTH supports online payment via PayPal, too!
Still not convinced Music Teachers Helper could help you grow your music lesson business? Prior to using MTH, my studio income was stagnant. In 2013, my studio income increased 53% from 2012! In the first 4 months of this year, I’m experiencing an 88% increase in studio income compared to the same period last year! This year, for the first time ever, I’ve had to turn down students!
MTH helps me use my time more efficiently. I can spend more time doing the things I like/need to do instead slogging through all the administrative tasks that come along with running your own business. For example, a few weeks ago I set up a series of “open slots” on my MTH website for my “summer session.” With a couple of mouse clicks, I sent out an email to my parents/students inviting them to go online and select their own lesson slots!
Instead of my time being eaten up by scheduling phone calls and emails, I can get other projects done while my students schedule themselves! Where else can you do that?
This is my honest, shoot-from-the-hip testimony of what I think of Music Teacher’s Helper and how it’s helped me to get organized and grow my studio business. For the music teacher, I can’t recommend their service enough!
