Repertoire Overhaul: It’s Here!

This week we’re introducing major changes to the Repertoire feature in My Music Staff.

Sneak Peek: Major Repertoire Changes

There’s a major change around the corner! We don’t normally provide a preview of upcoming changes, but we’d figure we’d share some of the excitement ahead of the release.

As a unit of measurement, we think “titch” is in metric.

The “Balance Paid/Balance Owing” text and color in the Parent Portal is now consistent with the Teacher Portal. So when parents and adult students sign into the Portal, their “Account & Invoices” page will show “Balance Paid” in green and “Balance Owing” is now shown in red! Optimizing for maximum warp! I mean speed! We’ve …


Prestissimo! Faster!

Student Details, Report!

Atten-hut! I apologize for our terrible puns and misuse of commas. New reports are now live in My Music Staff! You can now create a 1-page Student Details Report with all the information in one student’s account. Share these PDFs with your fellow teachers, keep them on file, or send them to parents to verify …


Put Your Best Foot-er Forward

If you’re a studio that takes advantage of Auto-Invoicing, you can now include a custom footer at the bottom of auto-created invoices! This option is stored with the auto-invoice settings, so you can specify a different footer for each family if necessary. This is a great option for families or students that need a gentle …
