What people say about Charanga

The sheer scale of material in this resource is amazing. The lesson plans are really easy to pick up and follow – even for a complete musical novice like me. Everything gives me the confidence to teach music in class.

Mike Craig, Head Teacher, Arnage Primary School

I imagine the biggest praise for this all-inclusive resource is that the pupils have asked if they could carry on with it next term!

Samantha Gordon, Teacher, Alford Primary School

We’ve been using Charanga for over four years now and love it. As a teacher with no musical training (or ability!), it has changed my practice completely. I feel confident and excited about delivering music in our school.

Joanne Brown, Head Teacher, Lumsden School

We had great fun using the ukuleles this morning. It was only our third session and we all managed plucking the strings and strumming the C chord to perform ‘Old Macdonald’. The teachers and TAs are really enjoying using the resources and learning alongside the children too!

Dorothy Driscoll, Lead Music Teacher for Shepway 1, Kent

I teach wider ops and use inspira for violin and have found it a very useful resource particularly the different styles of music played at the start of the session. The children’s musical vocabulary has really increased over just half a term and I’ve been told it’s their favourite lesson of the week.

Coreena O’Hagan, Coventry Music Service, Nuneaton

I am a Year 4 Class Teacher and even I have the confidence to deliver music using these resources….they are brilliant and the kids love them!

Year 4 Teacher, Read St John Primary School, Lancashire

A super set of easy to use, digital music teaching and learning resources – a must have support for Primary teachers.

Charanga has proved to be an invaluable asset to Primary Class Teachers in supporting and delivering music wider opportunities and general music lessons.

It has helped to build confidence and enthusiasm for music across the whole borough.

I don’t know what we would do without Charanga!

Ian Colthart, Head of Service, North Tyneside

I have just explored the resources and they are AMAZING!!! I have done lots of Kodaly training and am so excited about using the resources.

Grainne Naylor, Notre Dame School, Liverpool

Just to let you know, the children loved the resources – particularly the rhythm and beat cartoons! We followed the grids and then I got the children creating their own rhythms using a paper-based grid! They were extremely engaged and enjoyed performing to each other!

Thanks once again, such a priceless resource!
