I’ve had a very good year, and the music tuition and activities that I’ve been involved with have been well received. I was particularly pleased to be able to deliver a Hip Hop Coach session which the students enjoyed very much.

The interactive site has put and end to “death by 1000 worksheets” at KS3/4!
Ian Gray, Secondary Music Consultant, Lancashire
The Hip Hop Coach has revolutionised the way I teach this genre. Pupils are motivated to participate in performances that sound authentic yet are achievable. It is also a great tool for setting relevant practical homeworks.
Beverley Harrison, AST Alder Grange HS, Rawtenstall, Lancashire
Hip Hop Coach is very engaging for the students and they respond really well to the real music and multisensory approach. The interactive activities are great.
Carolyn Stead, Freeston Business and Enterprise College, Wakefield
A very useful tool for whole classes but also for small group instrumental lessons.

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
How much I have enjoyed using the Charanga resources. I have used numerous resources for brass and woodwind and this has made a tremendous impact on the effectiveness of my teaching. I used the trumpet resources in a recent end-of-term concert at a first school in Morpeth in which 50 Year 3 pupils gave an entertaining performance to the whole school and 50 parents. Two trumpeters visiting from a nearby middle school were amazed at the progress of the Y3 children in only 10 weeks, compared to how long it took them to learn the trumpet in the middle school.
The music advisors for North Tyneside have observed me using Charanga for whole-class clarinet and recorder teaching and have been amazed at how effectively it can be for Wider Opportunities projects.
