A vast, growing library of music resources
While for many teachers our Scheme options may be the part of Musical School they use the most, others may like the more flexible Freestyle approach provided by the programme’s resource library.
From this library you can choose from a range of Charanga music resources which you might like to mix in and match with your own. You can also use the library to find and save resources linked to many other areas of music-making in your school.
A look inside the Freestyle library
The topics Musical School provides contain collections of songs or related resources linked to popular primary themes, such as Ancient Egypt, Minibeasts or Healthy Living. As they are intended to be used flexibly to support your teaching in a range of contexts, there are no lesson plans. Each topic is categorised by age range, although many can be used across the primary sector.
The stand-alone units within Freestyle can be combined or added to other materials to form a unique music plan for your school. They all offer a flexible pathway containing every resource from the unit in a single lesson, giving you complete flexibility in your teaching. Many of the units, which cover a wide range of musical genres, centre around a central song – some well-known and some specially commissioned for young voices.
Our full school musical productions can be used to celebrate key points in the school year, such as summer or winter, or festivals such as Harvest and Christmas. Each production provides everything you need, including tracks for learning the songs, backing tracks for the performance, scripts, scores and director guides. The songs can be used in schools as often as you like. However, in most cases, it will be necessary to take out a Public Performance Licence for public shows. Please contact email@example.com for more information.
