Charanga is providing a new bilingual digital learning platform for music and expressive arts in Wales.

The pioneering project brings together Charanga, the Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA), the Welsh Music Services / Cymdeithas Addysg Gerdd Awdurdodau Cymru (CAGAC) and regional Consortia expressive arts leads.

Every teacher, child and young person in Wales will benefit from free access to the new platform from September 2022. A blend of culturally rich content, world-leading music technology and personalised teaching and learning features will ensure users can enjoy a truly contemporary music and expressive arts education.

In parallel, the platform will support the new National Music Service for Wales in delivering the Welsh Government’s ambitious vision for widening access to instrumental learning so that more children and young people can benefit from these life-enhancing activities.

An extensive CPD & Training programme from Charanga will supplement the platform’s release and ensure everyone makes the most of this excellent opportunity.

It’s an absolute pleasure to be working with WLGA, CAGAC and teachers across Wales to develop this innovative platform. Providing access to high-quality educational technology will do a great deal to support the Welsh Government’s investment in professional development for teachers, and their ambitious plan to put musical instruments into the hands of thousands of children. The team here at Charanga is delighted to be a part of the project.
