Charanga is a well established on-line music resource that is proving very useful to both specialist and non-specialist primary teachers. The resource is extremely comprehensive and covers an entire progressive scheme of work from Foundation to Year 6. Resources can be mixed and matched and even customised by individual schools to meet specific needs.
