Pros
What has impressed me the most, and continues to impress me, is your customer support.

Incredibly easy integration into my daily work. This has saved me significant time on admin that is now being used to improve my skills and develop my practice.

AM

I am impressed with how the categories automatically sync. MMS helps keep my records and invoices straight.

CY

Cons
I hated that they paid teachers for lessons that would need to be made up at the time the lesson was missed instead of when the teacher gave the make up lesson.

KM

Well, I was completely shocked when I first called and someone actually ansered the phone.

Can I choose to have no logo at all on the invoice, not even the default treble clef.

Couldn't run my music school without it

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

It is extremely simple and easy to use. I only use the Students, Family and Calendar portions of it, and it serves well beyond what I need it for. So easy to view schedule and filter and organize it based on location, teacher, student, etc. i LOVE , as do the parents, the 24-hour in advance automatic reminders auto-texted or e-mailed (your choice).

Cons

Besides a couple of very minor workflow impedances, it would be nice to integrate the calendar with an existing website, rather than only having the option to do so with the current website.

Does everything you need for a great price

Reviewed 5 months ago

I've found that the software fits my needs. I have looked around extensively to see if there is anything out there better and currently there isn't. There are similar platforms but they are more expensive. I also like how it specifically caters to music teachers rather than a generic software for all industries.

Pros

It does everything I need it to do in terms of scheduling, billing and expenses and has other features that I use sometimes such as lesson notes, file sharing, newsletters and lending library. It also has a website included, blog and online signup.

Cons

It would be good if students were able to edit/comment on their lesson notes. Also if there could be a blog or newsletter that is not public but only accessible by your clients with the ability for them to comment.

Game changer!

Reviewed a month ago

My overall experience has been amazing. The customer service reps are so kind and helpful, and the software itself has given me all I need to run my flute studio in one website.

Pros

I really like how many features are included with this software, it really is mindblowing.

Cons

Nothing! I like everything about this software.

Looks great on the website, doesn't it?

Reviewed 3 months ago

I was SO excited to find this service. But I've been SO disappointed in them, and can't wait to transfer everything to a new service later this year.

Pros

MMS promises to handle all of your music studio needs, from scheduling to billing to communications, and indeed, it has modules for all of those plus repertory records, lending library management, downloadable/playable resources, and even mileage. So if you want software that LOOKS like it does everything, you've found it!

Cons

None of these modules seem actually to have been tested by actual music teachers. Scheduling is ridiculously complicated, especially when students want to cancel or reschedule. Billing leads to a minimum of five confused emails from parents each month because of MMS's bizarre policies regarding past-due payments and account balances. Emails cannot be sent to students and parents simultaneously—they're automatically BCC'ed, leading to confusing message threads and miscommunications. Even the lesson notes and blog features are poorly handled—they don't auto-save, so an accidental tab closure can lead to the loss of an entire lesson's worth of notes, and formatting is bizarrely non-standard. (Don't even think about cutting and pasting.)

Excellent Software for Studio Management

Reviewed 3 months ago

MMS has made managing my studio extremely easy. When I first started on my own, I was using Google Calendar and various notebooks to track scheduling, payments, attendance, etc. I tried out a couple other ways to manage my studio, but MMS was the one I came back to for its ease of use and every feature I was looking for.

Pros

Easy to set up and use, inexpensive, packed with features, does everything I need to keep my small piano studio running smoothly! I don't use all of the features, but what I do use is fantastic.

Cons

Sometimes the space to enter lesson notes freezes up or glitches out. Aside from that, I haven't found anything glaring.
