School of Noise believes that children should have plenty of opportunities to listen to different sounds from an early age.
Listen & Play is a new class for babies and toddlers at Poplar Union in Tower Hamlets. Sessions are aimed at helping our little people develop their listening skills as they begin their journey through the sonic world around them. These sessions provide the perfect place to explore and play.
“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
Listen & Play is intended to be a space that is also fun and interesting for parents as well as children. Lots of the music played won’t be traditional children’s music, instead, we will play music from a variety of different artists including Brian Eno, Kraftwerk, Aphex Twin and Miles Davis.
Each class will focus on a particular theme to which all the sounds relate. For example, a theme of ‘animals’ may include listening to birdsong, songs that mention animals, and also of humans talking.
There will also be opportunities to dance and move to the sounds and play on a selection of musical instruments.
