The BBC has launched Bring The Noise, an educational campaign set to help primary school teachers and parents inspire children to become musicians and see the joys of music-making.
Musicians and artists will come together for the campaign from BBC Education which is aimed at children between the ages of four and seven. Fun, easy-to-follow educational films are set to help start children on their first steps towards a life of musical enjoyment as well as highlight the positive impact that music education has.
Studies have shown that teaching music in the classroom not only improves the well-being of children but also positively impacts on their ability to learn.
Ofsted published the results of its annual parent survey on 30 April 2019, which revealed that only 32% of parents felt that music was covered sufficiently in their child’s education.
Supporters of the campaign include iconic musician and producer Mark Ronson, Golden Globe nominated film composer Daniel Pemberton (Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse), musicians Naturally 7, Gregory Porter, Lil Nas X and former JLS star JB Gill.
