Payment Collection and Student Management

It is super imperative to receive payments in a quick in timely manner so we have a couple of options we use.
    • Tuition Payments are primarily auto-drafted on the first of the month, it just makes collecting tuition quick and easy for us. Especially, with so many students enrolled it can be very challenging to keep up with who needs to pay and when. (Just as a side-note when someone enrolls mid-month, tuition is pro-rated so they can begin paying full tuition on the first of each month). I use a two programs at this time and they are:
      • Jackrabbit Class – JacKrABBIT cLASS IS A GREAT PROGRAM TO
      • ProCare Software & Tuition Express-This Program was primarily created for daycares however, I found out about it from a dance studio, so when I decided to try it in my studio-I did so primarily so that I could collect payments easily and quickly through autodraft. I have been using ProCare/Tuition Express for a years (6 +) however, we are changing due to the need to use a more universal software. ProCare actually doesn’t work with Mac and also cannot be used from any device and how I have Jack Rabbit Class set up I can use it from any computer as long as I am able to login.

CONTENT & WEBSITE DESIGN

GRAPHICS

  • Canva.com-I Use Canva to create so many graphics for my business. It’s easy fast and simple to use! Canva has both a free and paid option to use. Absolutely, hands down one of my favorite FREE graphic design resources on the web. Canva is a tool that you can use to design everything from your social media covers + blog graphics to covers for an eBook. The interface is easy to use even for a beginner with no design experience.

WEBSITE building

  • WordPress.org-I found that WordPress is a great platform to build my music studio website (as well as this one!), there are many themes/templates that you can use to build your website. I also find it easy to access and maintain my website. Any questions

  • SheetMusicPlus.com-I use this site to obviously order sheet music for myself, my students and for my school. Did you know that there’s an option to be an affiliate?! You can receive a percentage off of the music your students purchase.
