About This Tutorial

When you create a private lesson, you can only select one student to participate in that lesson. With a Group Lesson, you can select two or more students to participate in that lesson.

You can either schedule a group lesson to occur only once, or set it to repeat. In this tutorial, you will see how to create a group lesson that only occurs one time.

Create a Group Lesson That Only Occurs Once

Let’s say your students are getting ready for a music competition. A violin trio needs your help and the competition is only a week away. You need to get them together at your studio for a one time group lesson. After everyone decides on a day that works, you need to schedule the lesson in your calendar.

  1. Click on Calendar.

  2. Find the date on your calendar that the lesson is to occur on. Let's choose May 2nd, 2022.

  3. Click on May 2nd, 2022 and choose Add Group Lesson.

  4. Click in the Students field and select which students will be attending this group lesson. In this case, the violin trio is made up of Tchaikovsky, Chopin, and Bach.

  5. In the Date field, make sure the date is correct. And it is.

  6. In the Time field, choose the time that the lesson will start. Choose 10:00am.

  7. Next, choose if you will either charge each student their default rate package or create a new rate for each student. Here is what each option does:

    Charge Each Student Their Default Rate: This means that you will use their existing rate package. If their rate package charges them $100.00 per week, the group lesson is included. Thus no additional charges will show up on their invoice. Same for monthly and per semester rate packages. However, if you charge the student per lesson then that student will get charged for this group lesson.

    Set a Different Rate Per Student for This Lesson: What this allows you to do is charge each student for this group lesson. If their rate package charges them $100.00 per week, this lesson is not included. The student will see an additional charge on their invoice for this lesson. That charge is whatever you set it to when you select this option.

    In this case, click on the Charge each student their default rate radio button to select it.

  8. Click on the Add detail's down arrow. This will give you more options.

  9. In the Title field, change it to Violin Trio.

    Note: The title is what shows on your calendar.

  10. You can also change the Location and Category fields if you wish. In this case, we will keep them as is.

  11. Click on the Duration field and change it to 60 minutes.

    The Duration field lets you change the length of the lesson. This is the time frame that your calendar will reserve for this lesson.

  12. An option here is to click on the Apply Make-Up Credit box. You can see if there is any credit you want to apply towards this lesson.

    This shows that both Tchaikovsky and Chopin have make-up credit that can be applied towards this lesson.

  13. At the box next to Frederic Chopin, click on the down arrow too see his make-up credit choices.

  14. If you want to apply this credit to the Group Lesson, select Issued on: 03/30/2022.

  15. To add a lesson description, scroll back up a bit and click on the Add Description box.

    Type in something to remind yourself of why this lesson is taking place, for example.

  16. Click on Create New Lesson button, at the bottom of the popup box, to save.

The Group Lesson will now show up in your calendar.

Note: The Group Lesson will also show up in Tchaikovsky's, Chopin's, and Bach's calendars as well.

When notifications are set up your students will receive an email and/or a text message letting them know a new lesson has been created for them. See the Related Tutorials section below, for a link to instructions, on how to setup these notifications.
