Teachers / Music Leaders

Engage 11-14 Year Olds In Music Education With Music They Know And Love

Run exciting projects in contemporary music genres such as Hip Hop, House, Dubstep, Trap and Grime. This will encourage students’ music making, enjoyment and self-esteem to support well-being, confidence and inclusion policies.

We are loving VIP because it’s engaging students who didn’t believe they were “musicians”, and the lessons feel really positive.

Mark Knights, Joyce Frankland Academy

Support 14-16 Year Olds With Their Gcse & Btec Exams

VIP develops the main areas of study - listening and appraising, composition and performance - in a way that appeals to the modern music maker.

Access to additional examination accounts, assures students’ work occurs under monitored exam conditions.

VIP also complements all aspects of the Arts Award programme.

Perfect for my Year 10 class.

Elis Read, Saffron Walden School

Support For Planning & Running Successful Projects

VIP provides a growing planning framework and excellent project support for all stages of the creative process.

There are templates for common secondary and cross-curricular project themes such as dance music, rap & literacy, music tech, beat making etc.

We were running the House Music tutorials as a scheme of work with year 7 and there’s a real buzz around the school.

Rosie Weatherley, Castleford Academy

Boost Your Own Music Technology Skills With Detailed Online Cpd

Demystify and easily incorporate music technology, modern music genres, rapping and beat making into your lessons with detailed support from comprehensive online CPD and tutorials.

I learnt how to create dubstep. I didn’t know how to do it before and I can do it whenever I want now.

Head of Music, Rickstones Academy

Easy And Safe Access For Students In And Out Of School

No more issues with IT trying to install software or desperately trying to find children’s work on the school server, VIP is all online and in the cloud. Access is inclusive, through an internet browser and homework is a pleasure! What’s more, all the set-up of young people’s logins is all done by Charanga.

VIP particularly engages young people (from primary-aged learners to secondary school children) to continue the music-making process outside of the classroom. I can’t say enough about how much we love it!!

Cristin Casey, Burnt Mill Academy

Simplify Assessment & Tracking Of Student Progress

VIP offers easy access to students’ project work and their digital portfolio of evidence of achievement.

Feedback on tracks submitted to VIP comes directly to you (not to the student). If you choose, you can then pass it on to the students along with your praise.

We’re loving VIP at Stewards Academy, particularly because the pupils can use it at home and teachers can monitor their progress remotely

Stuart Barden, Stewards Academy

VIP has been so useful. It encourages independent learning and gives my students the chance to work with musical styles that they are more familiar with and find engaging.

As a teacher, I simply didn’t have time to learn how to use a new piece of software, let alone incorporate one into my lessons. But VIP’s videos are so easy to use that students can watch them and create their own work independently.

VIP not only prepares them for GCSE Music, it encourages them to develop a love for the subject.
