For Teachers

Creating logins for a whole class

Your pupils can now be given access to Charanga Music World in two ways. Historically, pupils signed-up individually using a token you gave them via a letter, on a "self-service" basis. We still support this method, but you may prefer the new way, which lets you quickly and easily create logins for an entire class.
