You can’t teach if you don’t have any students. So, we’ll start by adding students to My Music Staff. You can either add each student manually or you can import a student list.

  1. Navigate to “Students” from the main menu on the left.
  2. Click on the green “+ Add Student” button.
  3. Enter in your student details (student first and last name are required). You can also select a student's default billing rate during this step.
  4. Click "Next" to continue on to the "Family Contact Information".
  5. Choose whether this new student belongs to a “New Family” or an “Existing Family“.
  6. Enter in your family contact details (parent first and last name are required).
  7. Click the green “Finish” button.

Tip: The default duration and billing (we pre-selected $30 per 30 minute lesson) can be changed in “My Preferences”. To change this, click "Settings" in the top-right corner and select “My Preferences”. Select the "Default Settings" tab and make the necessary changes to your “New Student Default Setting” that best reflect the majority of your students. Keep in mind; this is simply a default. Any student can later be edited to have a unique lesson length, billing type or lesson length.
