Minute Of Listening

Sound is a powerful thing to a young mind. As babies we develop hearing long before sight but as the world becomes increasingly visually loud, children are losing the ability to creatively listen.

  • Minute of Listening is a diverse collection of 60 second recordings curated by Sound and Music to develop children’s creative listening and enrich teachers’ delivery across the curriculum.
  • Follow up questions prompt children to discuss what they heard, thought and felt, and teaching resources outline creative ways of using Minute of Listening in a variety of subject areas.

Whether used to discover new music, teach history, develop mindfulness or as a focusing exercise, Minute of Listening provides children with a stimulating way to learn and explore through sound.

Let’s get listening!
