Each Teacher with Forbes Music has the authority to accept or decline any students offered to them. These Student Inquiries (or “leads”)  will be sent via SMS messaging to the teacher’s mobile phone number. Standard text messaging rates will apply. 

A response is required before a student can be added to the teacher’s roster. If no response is received, reminders will be sent daily*. If the teacher has an interest in and the availability to accept a student with the information contained therein, follow these steps to accept the student (Please note that each inquiry will have a unique 3-digit code):

  1. Type 3-digit code of inquiry

  2. Type “YES”

  3. Then add any important scheduling details/notes that you would like to be considered. 

Example: 123 YES Monday afternoons or Saturday mornings. 

If the teacher has no interest in working with the described student, simply decline using these steps:

  1. Type 3-digit code of inquiry

  2. Type “NO”

Example: 123 NO 

* Reminders will continue daily until a qualifying response is received (includes 3-digit code and YES/NO). If the formatting is incorrect, the system may not recognize a qualifying response and continue sending reminders.
