Luisterminuut (2012) is an educational initiative letting kids listen to one minute of unique sound a day.

“Luisterminuut” is an initiative that wants to give all kids in primary schools in the Netherlands access to a great diversity of music and sound. During this project, kids ages 4-12 listen actively for one minute a day. The sounds differ greatly from day to day; from frogs at daybreak to Chopin to electronic sounds from the 50’s.
Through this activity, a discussion is started and the fantasies of the students stimulated. It has been proven that active listening has a positive effect on the attention span and social skills.

“Luisterminuut” is inspired by the UK project “Minute of Listening”.

“Luisterminuut” is a project initiated by Soundlings, in collaboration with HKU and MCO Educatie.
