Charanga and Severn Arts, Worcestershire’s leading arts and music education charity, have joined forces to support classroom music teaching and instrumental learning in the county. Our partnership gives 200 first, primary, middle and special schools fully subsidised access to the Musical School programme until September 2020.

“We are delighted to be offering Musical School to our schools in Worcestershire,” said Laura Worsfold, CEO at Severn Arts. “Charanga has such an array of resources, advice, support and creative approaches to music teaching and learning, and we hope our teachers will be excited by the prospect of working with it. We look forward to working with the excellent team at Charanga and are particularly pleased to be offering a package of training to help teachers and staff to use it to the full.”

“Like Severn Arts, our aim is to instil the same passion we have for music in the children and young people of Worcestershire, regardless of their background or ability,” said Mark Burke, Founder and Director of Charanga. “We’re delighted that our platform, model curriculum and training programmes will help to extend high-quality music provision across the county.”

Over 100 music services and hubs are now working with Charanga, combining its award-winning digital provision with their on-the-ground services, to increase teachers’ confidence and improve their wellbeing – all of which is leading to improved pupil outcomes.
