the power of music in special needs music class

                         Overview

Playing the piano enhances brain-function enriching academics, specifically, math, reading and science. It lends towards higher testing scores, ACT, SAT scores, college entrance exam scores and gives greater incidence of scholarships.

So what better place to study the piano than at school?

Perfect Praise Music has been partnering with VFCA since 2005 and have enjoyed every minute of working with VFCA families with our piano-based music programs. Amidst all the unusual circumstances of Covid-19, your child can still take beneficial piano lessons, from the safest places on the planet … their school and your home.

This is how it will work!  At VFCA, a Perfect Praise Weekly Piano Video Lesson will be shown to every student in the Elementary Building (K5-3rd grade).  This Weekly Piano Video Lesson, while a great start, will not provide everything that your child needs to learn to play the piano. 

To excel, your Learner will need:

1. To practice 5-8 minutes daily at a keyboard or piano (don’t panic, we have affordable ideas)

2. Complete worksheets

3. Study flashcards

 

That is where YOU come in. 

We’d like to connect with YOU to help ensure success at the piano! 

To have a successful experience, and gain all the benefits of what is provided for you at VFCA, we need YOU to be involved. So we have developed a Parent Support Club called Parents Encouraging Practice, Proficiency and Performance. (PEPPP Club)

We have structured four different levels of engagement, providing options that fit your schedule and budget from FREE to just a few dollars per week.

 

Join Mrs. Denie for a 1 hour Zoom Parent Meeting to learn more about the VFCA Piano Program this year. Thursday, August 13th, 6:30 p.m. Request the link.

 Three Piano Proficiency Programs

We have found that Accountability and Proficiency are important aspects for a successful online learning course of any kind. So we include both of those structures with our two Proficiency Program options.

When you sign up for a Proficiency Program, our Piano Teachers will interact with you weekly for your child’s proficiency at the piano. We also offer rewards, goal-setting and performance guidance creating a wonderful, excelling musician. How we interact is the difference in the two Proficiency Program options. You may choose to upload your Learner’s HomePlay assignments via our Upload Portal, or enroll them for an Accountability Lesson at the school.

Option #3: Proficiency Via the Upload Portal 

$59 month*

  • Structures: All the structures and features of Option #2 is included with this option including the Online Learning Piano Course, the Study and Curriculum Swap, the Game Courses and the Zoom PEPPP Meetings.
