Using Music to Enrich Family Life
Make Some Noise brings music making to children and their families, in school and after-school.
Music is not just a subject in the school curriculum. It is a fun, rewarding activity helping children learn, create and work together to achieve. In after-school clubs, playtimes, lunchtimes and family learning days, Make Some Noise works with schools, extended schools co-ordinators and family learning teams, to run singing, composition, song writing, and instrumental activities.
Make Some Noise provides opportunities for children and young people to engage in positive extended school activities across Stoke on Trent and Staffordshire. These sessions enable children to focus on musical activities such as improvisation, composition, vocal work and technology.
Our Sing Up Burton project has seen a singing leader working regularly in 15 schools in the town to make singing a daily part of school life. Three new vocal leaders have been trained, and experts have visited from around the country to share their songs and techniques.
"The families commented on the opportunity to just 'have fun' together. Everyone participated brilliantly and it was good to see children with a mixture of ages and abilities getting on and having a very positive experience. Parents seemed genuinely as keen as the young people to have a go. This really did give a great sense of togetherness with the idea of music creation."
