Soundbops has been nominated for the prestigious Beazley Designs of the Year 2020, among what curator Emily King describes as “the most innovative designs across fashion, architecture, digital, transport, product and graphic design, as nominated by the public and design experts from around the world.
Founder Michael Tougher says: “We are honoured and humbled to be one of the design success stories of 2020. Our mission to bring the joy of music to children will be hugely helped by this recognition.”
You can see the Soundbops instrument on display at the Design Museum in London until 28 March 2021. Visitors can see the incredible journey Soundbops has taken from a basic idea to the patent-pending technology behind the child-friendly instrument. (And here we are on the Design Museum website).
Soundbops aims to make music accessible to all children, together with all the educational, social and developmental benefits that music brings. Their revolutionary new musical instrument lets children take apart and build up the basic building blocks of music and prepares them for a lifetime of musical enjoyment, supported by the Soundbops music course that teaches children as young as three how to read, play and enjoy music.
