Makeup lesson solution

Traditional makeup policies have real costs

Reschedule credits policy

Families are too busy to schedule live makeups and good, quality teachers expect to be paid for every scheduled lesson.

Group makeups policy

Group makeups are an inefficient use of space, require scheduling teachers, have low attendance and are usually ineffective music education.

'No makeups' policy

A “No Makeup” policy leads to annoyed parents, disengaged students and a stressed front desk. Retention will suffer as a result.

Refund policy

Refunds have no educational value and they're a big financial cost to your studio. They eventually lead to a devaluation of your program.


Our makeup lesson solution in 3 simple steps

1. Students misses a lesson

A student is unable to make their scheduled lesson time. No notice required!

2. Teacher creates makeup

During the scheduled lesson teacher creates a makeup with video, text, PDFs and images.

3. Student is notified

A lesson reminder is sent to the family with a private link to the lesson - no login required!

LessonMate is the simplest way to connect and engage students every time they miss!

Easily create and deliver video lessons during the missed lesson time. No rescheduling, refunds or awkward conversations - just teaching!Click here to see an example lesson ➔

"If you're not guaranteeing your families value for every dollar they spend and guaranteeing your teachers pay for every hour they're scheduled to work, student and staff retention will be compromised."

Founder's Story

LessonMate was born out of necessity.My wife and I have been private music teachers for our entire adult lives. We’ve taught in every situation imaginable - out of our home, out of students homes, in studios and in schools.In 2008 we opened Bloom School of Music and Dance in Los Angeles, CA. We soon recognized a problem that went on to quietly plague us for years. It became a central challenge at our school:"What to do when students miss lessons?"We had always felt the impact of missed lessons, but owning a school made the issue that much more painful. Staff were rescheduling lessons. Teachers were teaching live makeups. As owners, we were parsing out credits and refunds. And worst of all, students who missed lessons were not getting the info they needed to stay engaged.It was time for a change.First we muddled together a solution of YouTube, Gmail and file-sharing services. Finally we decided to face the problem head-on. We designed an all-in-one platform tailor-made for missed lessons. With the aid of our trusty developer, Dan, LessonMate was born. Since then it’s helped studios from Anchorage to Australia solve the missed lesson conundrum.If you’re looking for an easy win for your school, check out LessonMate free for 14 days. I think you’ll like it as much as we do.
