Access fully funded online music education resources today!

The South Australian Department for Education’s Music Education Strategy is partnering with Charanga to offer all South Australian government schools with a primary enrolment the opportunity to register for fully funded access to a suite of online music education resources.

What is Charanga?

  • Charanga is an online music education resource that is designed to help generalist classroom teachers confidently deliver music education in their classrooms, using the latest educational technology.
  • The resource does not assume any prior musical knowledge.
  • The Charanga content is being contextualised for South Australian primary school educators and will provide the additional resources, training and everyday support they might need to enhance their classroom practice – including a vast, customisable library of premium music resources, topics, songs, productions, instrument courses and creative apps to engage their students.

Who is it for?

  • This exciting opportunity is only available to all South Australian government schools with a primary enrolment and is especially for teachers interested in developing their music education skills.

What’s provided?

In general:

  • A fully funded 2-year subscription to Charanga’s online music education platform and resources.
  • Immediate access after registration.
  • Participation at Professional Development Workshops taking place across terms 2–4.
  • A calendar and schedule of workshops will be designed once enrolment numbers and school uptake is known.

For schools not currently using Charanga:

  • Access to a 1-hour online introduction session.
  • Access to a 2-year school subscription provided by Charanga.
  • Funding for 1-day TRT (with the school to contribute 1 TRT day) for a teacher to attend a 2-day Professional Development (PD) program.
  • Funding to support the purchase of a classroom instrument package up to $550.

For schools already registered with Charanga:
