Jayne Brian, Music Teacher, Staffs
I love Charanga. The site has so much material and the user-friendly manner in which it is presented is great. I love that you can slow down and speed up pieces as you learn, for example. Some of the material is brilliant and the graphics and presentation are really fun and kid-friendly.

Excellent service by Charanga.
Jaswant Bola, Harrow Music Service
Among the nine music services within the GM Music Hub, there was great enthusiasm for working together to consolidate existing arrangements which services already had with Charanga, to develop a shared format for the digital learning sites across Greater Manchester.
The people at Charanga are fantastic to work with and are impressively informed where it comes to organisational transformation in music education. Charanga have been really helpful in ensuring that the interactive learning resource offer is presented in a way which allows school in the region to identify with the Hub and the the quality assurance it strives to provide.
In regard to this, the Hub is proud to have Charanga as one of its delivery partners. We believe that the quality of the Charanga content is unsurpassed in the music digital learning market and the Hub feels that it is able to offer a very high quality package to its schools at a bargain price.
Across the Hub region, we expect to see the resources being used in very different ways by different sectors of the music education workforce, but whether a colleague is a classroom practitioner, instrumental teacher or a teaching assistant and whether or not they are a trained musician, Charanga content will open up a world of practical ideas, possibilities and activities with the power to transform music lessons for the young people with whom they work.
We are delighted that this new arrangement with Charanga will make these high quality digital resources available to every school and practitioner in the region under the banner of the Greater Manchester Music Hub.
Dave Little, Head of Wigan Music Service
I am so proud to be associated with Charanga. I am already using the new system and it is so wonderful. All my kids in my Sheffield schools love Charanga and I also got to show Charanga off to the Sheffield Hallam University teacher training students and they love it and have never seen anything like it in their lives! In fact they are possibly going to consider buying a licence! We at Sheffield Music Service are thrilled with Charanga. All the very best and may I wish you all continued success.
Nigel Martin, member of staff at Sheffield Music Service
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.
Sarah Barkway, Instrumental Teacher delivering wider opportunities projects, Cumbria Music Service
Please pass on my congratulations to everyone involved in the upgrading. I am so impressed and it’s always nice to lead a session where people feel they’re being given a great set of resources, so you really made my inset session go well thank you thank you thank you!

The majority of our staff and a good proportion of our schools are now using Charanga regularly and finding it to be a fantastic learning tool and resource.
