Charanga Musical School Curriculum Overview


The Charanga Musical School Scheme provides a week-by-week lesson support for each year group in the school. It provides lesson plans, assessment, clear progression, and engaging and exciting whiteboard resources to support every lesson. The Scheme supports all the requirements of the national curriculum.


In line with the curriculum for music and guidance from Ofsted, this Scheme moves away from the previous levels and learning objective/outcome concepts to an integrated, practical, exploratory and child-led approach to musical learning.

Mastery in your Music Lessons

The teacher, is able to plan and provide the opportunity to embed a deeper learning, knowledge, understanding and skills.
