Music Listening Made Easy - Free Resources

At Simply for Strings, we passionately believe that every child should have the opportunity to explore the beautiful world of music. Music is a universal language that has the power to transform lives. That’s why we are delighted to support Concerts for All and their wonderful '1 Hour A Day' of music listening campaign.

Music education is important for many reasons. It fosters creativity, supports cognitive development, relieves stress, boosts confidence, fosters connection and brings joy. However, there is one important part of music education that is often overlooked: listening to music. This simple yet powerful practice can transform a child's musical journey. By taking the time to really listen, children can better understand different sounds, enjoy the beauty of music, and improve their own playing. Listening helps them connect with music on a deeper level and appreciate the magic it brings to their lives. The '1 Hour A Day' campaign is an inspiring initiative that encourages families to make music a regular part of their routine, enriching children's lives in countless ways.

The team at Concerts for All is helping families practice music listening with a wealth of fantastic online resources for teachers, parents, and students.
