Minute of Listening is a project that encourages active listening, introducing a wide variety of recordings across many genres and from all kinds of sources. They are sometimes exciting, sometimes challenging, but always aimed at arousing curiosity and capturing the imagination. When used in the classroom, 60 seconds of focused listening was often found to help create calm and focus – often useful before learning!
And in response to Covid-19, Sound And Music have released free sound packs. So whether you’re looking for a family activity, some interesting home-learning activities handed to you on a plate, have a go!
