Interactive Teaching Resources

Because the on-screen resources are so visual and supportive and everything is at your fingertips, every lesson is full of music and the children enjoy every moment.

What teachers say

"Musical School has given my staff the confidence and the resources to deliver exciting music lessons. The sessions are quick and easy to organise and can successfully be taught by non- music specialists. The children clearly enjoy the dynamic, fun and stimulating sessions and our teachers are learning valuable new skills."

--Julie Brown, Headteacher

"I think Charanga is absolutely fantastic. I use the rhythm grids as a starter activity in all my classes and the pupils’ understanding of rhythm, the accuracy with which they perform has really improved. I use the recorder course with my clubs and they love all the songs. This half term I’m also teaching the hip hop topic with my y6s and it’s going really well. I look forward to some more exciting resources."

--Yvette Cooper, Music Teacher
