School of Noise

Listen & Play classes for babies and toddlers exploring sound

What School of Noise says

Listen & Play is a new series of classes for babies and toddlers brought to you by the School of Noise. These classes are for children aged 3 months - 5 years old and explore the wonderful world of sound.

We aim to encourage you and your child to listen to lots of different sounds, create music, and dance or move together. Each class will have a different theme that all the music and sounds will relate to.

The music played won’t necessarily come from the world of traditional ‘children’s music', why not dance to Kraftwerk, or have a calming moment together listening to Brian Eno? As well as music there will be lots of other sounds such as birdsong, bells and people talking.

The School of Noise started 6 years ago and runs workshops for children exploring the science of sound and music. We have visited schools, museums, festivals, art centres and hospitals offering children and families a chance to play on musical and scientific equipment and learn and play together.

“The School of Noise is one of those ideas that you just KNOW is right: bringing back a sense of wonder & accessibility to music-making. Music is organised noise and organising noise is fun!” — Jarvis Cocker

“Thanks so much for giving your time and energy to providing a brilliant experience for the children and young people. It makes such a difference to their time in hospital to be able to offer them something different and exciting.” — Great Ormond Street Hospital School
