Welcome to the future of music rehearsal. The VAE® Rehearsal System from Wenger is an amazing instrument that’s reshaping how teachers teach and students learn. Its advanced audio technology enhances your practice room acoustics to accelerate learning. It can vividly mimic the sound of performing in nine different environments including a cathedral, an arena or your own school’s auditorium – at the push of a button. See the list on this page for upcoming LIVE demonstrations to hear VAE in person.
We’ve just released our new VAE Rehearsal Guidebook. This 20-page guide details how educators are using VAE in their practice rooms to support the artistic processes outlined in the National Music Standards. It’s full of tips and step-by-step instructions on using the system.
“THE VAE REHEARSAL SYSTEM IS OUTSTANDING – my students can actually experience playing in a performance environment: maintaining rhythm, tuning and pitch across the band.” – Joel Ashbrook, Director of Bands, Central High School, San Angelo, TX
“With active acoustics, you really do hear differently. My students’ faces lit up the first time we used the system! They quickly noticed they could hear parts they could not hear before.” – Tami Goss, Band Director, Bridge City High School, Bridge City, TX
