Arts Award and Charanga

Arts Award at Discover, Explore and Bronze levels fit well with Charanga resources to support your pupils.

Students can work with their teacher through Charanga’s resource library to find inspirational content. They can record their own music, watch videos and listen to the audio samples curated by professional artists in YuStudio, Charanga’s beginner-friendly digital audio workstation.

The teaching and learning platform enables them to evidence the music-making activities they have participated in and reflect on the skills they have learnt within Yumu, Charanga’s student-facing workspace.

Teacher Guides support lesson planning and delivery, as well as downloadable pupil logs and an interactive Bronze Portfolio for pupils to upload evidence and their creative work.

Start a no-obligation 30-day trial to explore the Charanga platform fully

If you are a Music Hub or Service planning large numbers of Arts Award please get in touch to discuss options for support.
