Charanga Musical School is the most significant new Primary music resource for a decade which is being used by over 100 Primary schools across Norfolk. It’s a living cloud-based resource that brings together great music, modern pedagogy and the latest educational technology. It supports all aspects of music in school including the new music curriculum, as well as providing children and their families with opportunities to continue learning and exploring music at home through Music World.

A Musical School licence includes individual access for as many teachers in your school as you would like plus access for all children to Music World online learning. If you run whole class instrumental programmes across a year group, so much the better. Children’s achievement will benefit from good quality instrumental ensemble work at any stage of their progression.

The Charanga Musical School Scheme provides teachers with week-by-week lesson support for each year group in the school. It is ideal for specialist and non-specialist teachers and provides lesson plans, assessment, clear progression, and engaging and exciting whiteboard resources to support every lesson.

The Scheme supports all the requirements of the new National Curriculum and is absolutely in line with published Ofsted guidance.

Educator Solutions Music Service offers schools the chance to purchase a Charanga licence at the discounted rate of £160 per annum or free if you are in receipt of the Whole Class Ensemble Teaching (WCET) package. We can arrange for you to have a free demonstration in your school and you will be invited to attend regular Charanga Cafés for sharing knowledge and ideas.
