Simple ways to improve classroom acoustics?


The main way in which classroom acoustics can be improved is to reduce the reverberation of sound within the room (i.e. limit sound bouncing off of hard surfaces). Your child’s teacher may like to:

  • Celebrate children’s artwork by placing around the room and from the ceiling
  • Hang soft furnishings on hard surface walls (e.g. soft materials, felt, corkboard)
  • Use rugs / carpet to reduce the noise from moving chairs, items dropping on the floor
  • Treat windows with curtains or blinds
  • Keep windows and doors closed to reduce noise and distractions from outside the classroom
  • Turn of any noisy equipment in the room when not in use
