MyMSM is a secure remote login facility for Peripatetic music teachers to access information relevant to them. Teachers can view their timetable, register students, write lesson notes, create end of term reports and view contact details. MyMSM is compatible with iPads, iPhones and any web browser.
A key feature of MSM is the management information system. This provides information as a bar or pie chart, which aids senior management meetings and is vital for school inspections.
Many areas of MSM benefit from this feature which allows staff to analyse individual areas of the music department such as the number of students studying each instrument, the exam entries per teacher or the distribution of lessons per year group.
