Making a difference

Charanga is an ethical business, serious about social responsibility. Use Charanga and be confident that you’re helping create opportunities for disadvantaged young people across your community.

Charanga has the potential to transform the learning of music, making it accessible and available to non-specialist teachers too; something that is much needed in today’s learning environments and so relevant for our community of teachers and learners.

Celebrating Scottish music

A wealth of Scottish music celebrates everything from Gaelic songs to Scottish Celtic Rock bands, showcasing the genre’s modern instruments and techniques.

Selected highlights include

  • A series of Listen & Respond resources with tracks created by our friends and partners at the National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music (Sgoil Chiùil Na Gàidhealtachd).
  • A set of Scottish songs, resources and activities, arranged and recorded by Charanga covering several styles, including Early Years, Gaelic, Traditional Scottish and Celtic Rock.
  • A series of music projects for students in P6–7 supporting those teaching older children. Students will use YuStudio, Charanga’s online music studio, to become young creatives able to make the most of contemporary technologies.
  • A dedicated Ceilidh unit exploring different styles of ceilidh music and dancing.

Teachers can use our Scheme builder feature to combine Charanga units with their own uploaded resources and documents to create a unique learning pathway for their school.
