Charanga Sing

A fantastic teaching resource that encourages everyone to sing more!

Research has shown the undeniably positive impact of singing on students’ emotional, physical and mental well-being – hence the inclusion of Charanga Sing in the Musical School programme, a popular teaching resource that encourages everyone to sing more.

With a bank of over 500 songs for all occasions, such as assemblies, ages and groupings, it caters for vocal specialists, confident singers or those keen on promoting singing in their school. By providing fun songs to sing from around the world and their cultural contexts, learners’ music education experiences are enriched.

Finding songs

Use the categories provided, such as age range or genre, to highlight suitable material or Charanga’s search facility to look for specific words – perhaps linking to work you are doing in other curriculum areas.

A wealth of information

An overview of each song, including its age suitability, difficulty and genre, will help you decide which one will work best for you and the children. Opening the Song Description and Details reveals teaching ideas, musical guidance such as range, key and tempo, and more.

Quick access to your favourite songs

You can ‘star’ songs for your teaching or specific projects when looking through the song bank. These will be added to your My Resources page with My Workspace, allowing easy access whenever needed.

Singing Courses and Song Collections

Musitrax Sing 1 & 2 offer a child-centred approach to music teaching for Early Years and Key Stage 1 based on Kodály principles. A bank of nursery rhymes, action songs, old favourites, and specially written songs is included for younger children.

A range of unison and two or more part songs encourages older children to sing. The Song Collections contain well-loved materials for school choirs, and a vocal health section features fantastic body and vocal warm-ups, exercises and popular tongue twisters.
