How much I have enjoyed using the Charanga resources. I have used numerous resources for brass and woodwind and this has made a tremendous impact on the effectiveness of my teaching. I used the trumpet resources in a recent end-of-term concert at a first school in Morpeth in which 50 Year 3 pupils gave an entertaining performance to the whole school and 50 parents. Two trumpeters visiting from a nearby middle school were amazed at the progress of the Y3 children in only 10 weeks, compared to how long it took them to learn the trumpet in the middle school.
The music advisors for North Tyneside have observed me using Charanga for whole-class clarinet and recorder teaching and have been amazed at how effectively it can be for Wider Opportunities projects.
