Learning Supported by School of Noise

The School of Noise supports students to learn more about the science of sound and music. Lessons are delivered online and blend online interaction with classroom-based activities. Sound is such an incredibly broad subject, and can expand into many other topics including architecture, medicine, sound design, acoustic ecology, engineering, and music. The School of Noise aims to take participants on a journey exploring these different areas.
