What people say about Charanga

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

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.

Phil Morgan, Primary Teacher, The Vine Inter-Church Primary School, Cambridgeshire

I just really wanted to contact you to let you know how amazed I am with the quality of the resources I recently received from you. Everytime I access the website I find new resources which I know the children I work with will love and which are highly engaging teaching tools.

The lesson plans and resources which come with the platinum pack certainly do not disappoint in any way! I simply cannot believe how much work has gone into the creation of this amazing resource, which in my opinion all music teachers should be accessing! I know that over my years in teaching I have invested in many expensive resources – none of which are in the same league as the inspira resources.

I am an Advanced Skills Teacher for music and will whole heartedly be recommending inspira to all the schools and organisations I work with, and the teachers I support, as an outstanding resource.

Many congratulations to you and your team.

James Gregory, Music Teacher, Colmore Junior School, Birmingham

It’s such a fantastic resource and all staff at Joy Lane have taken to it with ease and enthusiasm. Even our specialist teacher in Geography has been taken aback with the amount of resources available on the website and used it already! Teachers in KS1 have made great use of the site too, through the topic menu under curriculum focus , using the space resources. We have also begun enabling the student access and hope to use this as a
way of providing music homework each term. An absolutely brilliant package!

Annamarie Godden, Joy Lane Primary School, Kent

It has given us the opportunity to learn an instrument that we might not have been able to do.

Sophie, Pupil, Year 5 Longton Primary School, Lancashire

I’ve enjoyed music so much that I might go on to join a club!

Haydn, Pupil, Year 5 Longton Primary School, Lancashire

I feel special because we are the only class in the school that does this sort of music lesson.

Joseph, Pupil, Year 5 Longton Primary School, Lancashire

I can find new tunes to learn on my own at home. It is much more interesting using my computer.

Yr 5 Pupil, Sherwood County Primary, Lancashire

The programmes are very helpful for whole class instructions (I just wish I had more time to explore and compose tailored lessons to suit the fast track pupils but also keeping the interest of the less able). I use Charanga almost every day teaching some 150 and more pupils per week. Its ease of use has triggered a few Head Teachers to embrace it and also sign us up for another year of tuition.

Crawford Hall, Tees Valley Music Service

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!
