Many of our teachers tell us that their students are using VIP out of school in their own time, as part of homework or on their own initiative.
They can go home and log in, give them their VIP cards and they can create. They’ve got the tools, the literacy tools, to be able to create their own raps, and understand the process behind it as well.

Students have been so motivated to continue working on their projects at home and around the school, it has been great to see pupils so passionate!

Once a student is given his/her own login, they are free to access the site from anywhere with an internet connection. This encourages continuation of their musical practice at home, something which is traditionally more common with instrumental learning.
There is no additional cost for all your students to have a login – it’s all included in the cost of the school’s licence. This ensures that students for whom private music lesson costs would be prohibitive can get involved, and it expands the appeal of music to those who are more interested in contemporary genres.
The students love to be able to carry on with their compositions away from the classroom and are really excited to show the teachers their work.
We are loving VIP at Joyce Frankland Academy because it’s engaging students who didn’t believe they were ‘musicians’, and the lessons feel really positive. The students love it because they can create music at home and at school.

My students have just started on VIP and they love it… When I told them they could access it at home they were over the moon!
William Searl, Performing Arts Faculty Team Leader, Colchester Academy, Essex
We’re loving VIP at the James Hornsby School because students can log on outside the lesson to continue the composition they’ve started, and the making a beat resources are clear to understand and make our students feel more independent when composing.
Jessica Langley, Head of Music, James Hornsby School
It’s probably the most comprehensive resource to support the teaching of contemporary music genres ever produced. See what it can do for your school.
