[accordion-item title=”Charanga Musical Schools – Are they Beneficial?”]

Charanga Musical School is a music programme and platform packed full of positives for students, teachers, schools and CPD music coordinators. The ‘Scheme’ sector is ideal for non-specialist teachers as it offers a simple step-by-step approach for teaching music. Teachers and CPD music coordinators are provided with week-by-week programmes for specific year groups, complete with lesson plans, assessments, clear progression, and whiteboard resources.

On the other hand, Charanga is great for specialist music teachers through the ‘Freestyle’ section. This offers a flexible option for teachers looking to access a wider range of Charanga’s resources from the library. The Freestyle programme allows for customisation and includes topics or primary themes categorised by age range.

‘Charanga Sing’ is another brilliant feature, containing over 500 songs. It’s an excellent way for teachers to help children uncover their identity and express their culture. Children are also introduced to instruments at a young age, which can help the development of the brain, improve coordination, literacy, and mathematical ability.
