New Charanga Musical School

Charanga Musical School

Charanga Musical School is the most significant new Primary music resource for a decade.

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.


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.

The learning within this scheme is based on: Listening and Appraising; Musical Activities - creating and exploring; and Singing and Performing.


Musical School Freestyle includes a library of stunning resources categorised by musical style or topic, along with simple lesson building and class building tools so you can assemble your own unique Music Scheme.

Many people also like to use the Units, Topics, Courses and all the singing materials in Musical School Freestyle to augment their existing Music Schemes.


Musical School contains a substantial Song Centre with nursery rhymes, chants and action songs for younger children, and classical repertoire and well known favourites by Abba, Bon Jovi and Adele for older children.

The Songs are complemented by two Musitrax singing courses written for Early Years to KS1 with progressive interactive resources, extensive teacher guides plus some very useful vocal warm-up activities.

All the songs are easy to use on a whiteboard with automated page turns and lyric highlighting and they also have with and without vocal versions. You can use them online or download as many as you like.
