How to Use a Piano Teacher Digital Planner

Hey piano teachers! Do you like using planners? I do! And I love using this beautiful blush, navy, and champagne digital planner for piano teachers! This planner includes a variety of forms, calendars, and documents for your studio, whether you’re teaching online or in person, to help keep you organized and keep your studio running smoothly. And you can even import sheet music into the digital planner to keep your lesson planning for online piano lessons organized and at your fingertips!

  2. PDF File of the digital planner. Upload the file to GoodNotes on your iPad to start using it.
  3. Digital Stickers: Letters, numbers, days, months, years, monthly mini calendars. These will be imported into the GoodNotes file as you need them.
