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

Charanga e-learning resources are a valuable tool for Music Service instrumental and vocal tutors and classroom teachers. They allow easy access to a wide range of specialist state of the art music teaching materials that enable teachers and pupils to work together.

Music lessons get more creative every time we do them!

Rachel, Pupil, Year 5 Longton Primary School, Lancashire

We’ve been working successfully with Charanga for two years, adapting and applying their innovative and flexible eLearning system to our own requirements. It has been tremendously exciting working with Charanga on developing ground-breaking new ICT systems for supporting teachers in the classroom with exciting and accessible ways of ensuring good musical practice and skills development.

Brendon Le Page, Director, Lambeth Music Service

A fantastic resource that engages the student and fully supports the teacher. Learning is fun.

Alex Hodgson, Director, Nottinghamshire Arts Support Service

Teachers and students have found that Charanga has opened the doors to personalised learning for both themselves and their students. They have embraced digital learning experiences to ensure learning experiences are compelling, real and relevant.

Charanga contains imaginative and stimulating material and is well-resourced in order that staff, students and their parents can access material easily and regularly to enhance their learning. Both instrumental staff and classroom teachers customise resources and repertoire to suit individuals, small groups and full classes.

Durham Music Service has developed a CPD programme for instrumental teachers and classroom subject leaders called ‘Link the Learning’ which links the learning between the practice room, classroom and beyond. Within the programme Charanga has facilitated contextualised learning opportunities where there is a constant sharing of knowledge, resources and new learning opportunities.

Students and staff are challenged in their learning through the regular flow of new material that is consistently pushing learning to a new level of understanding.

Using Charanga in Portsmouth schools has broadened access for pupils, diversified resources for staff and enlivened the delivery of whole class instrumental and vocal teaching

Sue Beckett, Head of Portsmouth Music Service

We’ve been working with Charanga for two years now. As ICT Manager for the Service I immediately saw the potential of Charanga’s online resources. Initially the content was ideal for our Wider Opportunities programme at KS2. This content has not remained static but has grown and developed steadily over the ensuing months. Working alongside the Music Service, Charanga has and is very proactive in developing resources at KS3/4 that are now coming on stream. Obviously the quality of the content is paramount and I cannot fault them here but I have also been very pleased at the willingness of Charanga to allow the Music Service to stamp our identity on the site working hard to develop a look and feel that makes it a seamless part of our general website.

Over the time I have worked with the Directors and their colleagues, I have come to realise that they are not solely interested in the firm’s general profits but have a genuine enthusiasm in providing quality resources to help pupils reach their full potential.

Stuart Grills, Head of ICT and Marketing, Lancashire Music Service

I can unreservedly recommend Charanga to any LEA Music Service; they have proved an invaluable partner and a great asset to us.
