November Newsletter
Hi <<First Name>>, 

You're about to experience some big improvements to Music Teacher's Helper. We're excited to announce that the new student and calendar features we've been working on are now ready, and we'll begin making them available to a subset of teacher accounts starting this week! 

And we're not just adding new features in this release. We're also improving the way you learn how to use the software. All upcoming features will be accompanied with screencasts like this one.

In the above example, you're being shown how to create lessons and events right from the Calendar view. With the new Calendar process, you can click an existing event to see important lesson information without having to jump to different screens. You can also easily edit event information right from the calendar pop-up.

If you see a green banner at the top of your screen when you login, you've been selected to be among the first to check it out. Simply click the banner to upgrade your account and use the new features. If you've previously requested to be on our Beta list, you'll be included in this. You can also go back to the previous mode at any time.

*On Tuesday, an option to join Beta Mode accidentally appeared in accounts other than our beta testers. If you saw the option to join on Tuesday and no longer see it today, we apologize for the confusion that was caused. The Beta Mode option will be available in all accounts soon, and we promise to provide an advanced communication regarding the changes.  

We think you're going to love these new changes. They'll make the software easier to use, faster to work with, and more powerful in helping you run and grow your studio, while staying connected to your students. 

As we've mentioned in previous emails, we've got many more improvements in the pipeline, including a big revamp of the Billing and Invoicing system. We're here to serve you, and we'd love to hear from you. So please let us know what you think of the new changes, and how we can serve you better.
