2018 was the busiest year to date. It saw us take the School of Noise overseas for the first time to visit to Ireland, The Netherlands, United Arab Emirates and Oman. Thank you to all the festivals, schools, arts centres, museums and charities who invited us to take part in their activities. And thank you too to everyone who came to visit our workshops.
We recently visited the United Arab Emirates to take part in the Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival. During the 11 day expo we saw over 1000 children attend our workshops! Thank you to everyone who came along and to the organisers for inviting us.
Here is a link to the head of School of Noise, Dan Mayfield, talking about music education and the history of School of Noise which he gave at WOMAD Festival in August 2017 for BBC Radio 4’s Four Thought: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b092fwxg
We are very excited to read what Jarvis Cocker had to say about our workshops:
“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 & organising noise is fun! Dan Mayfield manages to communicate this fact to all those he works with. I doff my cap to him” – Jarvis Cocker
Here is the link to the Independent article on School of Noise where Dan explains more about the project and what the School of Noise is all about – here
We are excited to be part of Illuminations Festival at the Museum of London on the 29th October. Throughout the evening people will have opportunity to have a hands on play with our noise making machines and scientific sound apparatus.
