Turn It Up: The power of music – Schools

Enjoy a riotous, hands-on experience with our new major exhibition exploring the science of music's mysterious hold over us and how it drives us to create, perform, feel and share.

Explore how music is created, produced and communicated, and learn how science and technology are pushing the limits of music to make playing more accessible for everyone. Encounter some unique instruments and delve into curious questions to discover what music means to us and the lives of others. 

Find out how music can trigger emotions and memories, whether it can affect what you buy, and even what certain songs taste like. Take part in a musical Turing test and see if you can tell the difference between songs written by humans and machines. Make music together and play with beat, melody and harmonies in a newly commissioned musical playground.
