ABOUT THE EFTERKIDS PERFORMANCE IN THIS VIDEO Earlier this year, Efterklang "performed" two songs with students of New York's Special Music School (SMS). We say "performed" because the kids played live in front of a 20 foot high projection of the band. The band edited the footage from the two performances into the performances that you can see at http://www.efterkids.com - creating the unique Efterkids concert experience.

                    Minute of Listening is a creative learning project which encourages pupils and teachers to engage in 60 seconds of focused listening per day. The project is aimed at developing listening skills and introducing children to a wide range of new sounds. It is also anticipated that Minute of Listening will encourage creative thinking, class discussion and an inquisitive approach to aural experiences. The project has emerged from Sound and Music’s aspiration to promote the joys and rewards of listening, and as a response to current debate around creativity and the importance of listening in a child’s learning and development.

                      The benefits of music education has been researched for decades. Most recently neuroscientists have been excited about the significant differences they have seen between the brain functions of musicians, when compared with non-musicians. It has become clear that music education before the age of 7 has the greatest benefits to brain development. Furthermore it has been found that it only takes, at the very lest, an hour a week of structured, formal music education to make permanent and positive changes to the brain functions of every child. This film has been made for music educators, parents, principals and policy makers to help get across the importance of music education in every child's education.
