Piano Belloso Music Studio

Online Account Access

for Students and Families

Although this website is the central hub of the studio's online presence, there are actually three different online accounts that my students and their families will need to access regularly. The following are guidelines for the use and differences of each.

The Student/Parent Portal

 The portal, which is directly accessbile from this website, provides secure access to student contact info, billing accounts and invoices, payment methods, calendar of events, studio announcements, and more...

The Simply Music Student Intranet

When students enroll in the Simply Music program, their student home materials, including their entire library of videos, audio tracks, and downloadable documents, are stored online. In order to access the curriculum, they will need to log in to a separate website.

The Better Practice App

Practice is a very important part of learning music. A common reason for students discontinuing lessons is because practice at home is not working well. In addition to other aides, my students use a modern practice tool called Better Practice that makes practice easier, smarter and more fun. It puts everything you need to practice at your fingertips

 

The Student/Parent Portal

The Student/Parent Portal is accessible from my studio website and requires a user name and password to log in. Upon enrollment, I will email a temporary password to parents and adult students, which can be updated to one of their own choosing after logging in the first time. Adult students and parents can utilize the portal to:

Keep Up to Date

  • view the studio calendar
  • see upcoming lessons and events
  • register or cancel lessons
  • keep track of studio closures and holidays
  • view attendance, teacher notes, and make-ups
  • see studio announcements and news

View and Edit Account Info

  • view and download invoices
  • see a more detailed breakdown of all charges & credits
  • make payments, or change stored payment info
  • view and update contact info for all family members
  • see a history of email communcations

Please Note: Use of the Student/Parent Portal is only for students and families enrolling directly with the studio. If you are enrolling via a third-party (such as the City of La Mirada or another community organization), then your billing account and class schedule can only be accessed via that organization's own online portal or other support.

 
 

Use of the studio website and Student/Parent Portal is contingent upon acceptance of both the Online Privacy Policy Agreement and the Terms of Service which may be viewed any time using the links in the footer section of this website.


The Simply Music Student Intranet

After completing enrollment, new students are required to create a user profile on the Simply Music Student Store (https://students.simplymusic.com/store), which will allow them to purchase their curriculum.

Simply Music curriculum is only accessible via the Simply Music Student Intranet, and is not available through my studio website. The same User ID and Password that you create for the store will also be used to access all future curriculum and materials on the SM Student Intranet Library (https://students.simplymusic.com).

Please note that only one user profile is required per family.

Better Practice: The Music Practice AppBetter Practice

The Music Practice App

Practice is a very important part of learning music. A common reason for students discontinuing lessons is because practice at home is not working well. We want you to be successful, so we use a modern practice tool called Better Practice that makes practice easier, smarter and more fun. It puts everything you need to practice at your fingertips, including the teacher!

Here are just some of the things you will be able to do:

  • Get a new practice list each day. Everyday, Better Practice generates a personal practice list based on what you need
  • Send questions during practice. No more waiting for the next lesson and losing a week of progress.
  • Track your practice, what and how long, as well as your progress. The teacher can see this too.
  • See other students who are learning just like you.
  • Add videos and backing tracks. Have fun playing along as if you are in a band.
  • ...and much more!

Better Practice is a music app that works on any device with a modern browser including iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, Macs and PCs. Just open up a browser. Nothing to download!
