Fully funded access

The South Australian Department for Education’s Music Education Strategy is offering all South Australian government schools with a primary enrolment fully funded access to Charanga’s online music education platform 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.
