Music overview

Charanga is a music education and technology company based in Brighton in the UK. We have adopted their carefully developed online platform that provides teachers and students with the help and resources they need to achieve their musical ambitions.

We believe everyone using the platform can enjoy every minute of their music education. Charanga are passionate about children’s music learning and its potential to help them grow up as kind, curious, and open-minded young people who are sensitive and knowledgeable about music and the arts.

This scheme supports teachers with everything they need to teach music confidently, professionally and with enjoyment and enthusiasm.

This scheme supports music teaching and learning by combining world-class educational technology, solid pedagogy, and great resources.

At Aston All Saints, we believe that playing instruments is an important part of music-making. From year 3 children play the recorder following recorder books 1 & 2. These are designed & used to extend learning as part of the music curriculum, but also offer enrichment activities.

Music Policy 


All children play instruments in their class music lessons. From year 3 onwards every child is taught to play the recorder. Children have the opportunity to learn with our team of highly skilled peripatetic teachers. Instruments taught range from the piano, violin, cello, flute, recorder, clarinet, cornet, trombone, guitar and drums. Children perform in our family services, Eucharists, concerts, productions, music assemblies.

There are lots of opportunities for children to learn to play an instrument and enjoy music as part of the school music curriculum. Children have opportunities to sign up for 1 to 1 music lessons or group Rock Steady band lessons. Children have also enjoyed being part of one of the largest choirs to preform at Sheffield Arenas Young Voices for many years.
