I just like to feel the beat and sing along!

I just wanted to let you know how much I’m enjoying the Musical School. I decided to trial it across the whole school: KS1 is accessing Hands, Feet, Heart; Years 3 and 4 In the Groove and Years 5 and 6 Don’t Stop Believin’. All the children are enjoying the different activities. A definite thumbs up from Upper Beeding.

We have been using Charanga for almost 2 years now and have found it a great resource for introducing our primary school children to a range of musical disciplines. Its lesson plans are comprehensive, easy to follow and most important of all fun. In addition, this is all supported by a great technical support team.

I have to say that having played around on the Charanga site, I think it is fantastic. I have even started a staff choir and am using some of the material in order to let staff feel that they can sing and introduce them to the site at the same time. Think I may have been inspired by Gareth Malone!

I think Hey You is a great resource for all primary ages – and the games track is fun! It also gives a good backing for instrumental starters and those who can play a few notes.

New Charanga – it’s fabulous!! The kids have really enjoyed the units and the staff are delighted.
Julie Dorr, Primary Music Curriculum Support Consultant, North Tyneside
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!

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.

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 dont know what we would do without Charanga!
