We wanted to know….
- WHO is or isn’t learning/playing music
- WHY they stopped
- HOW they feel
- WHAT impact is it having on their life and wellbeing
So we (our parent company The MusLEXica Organisation) set up a YouGov Music and Well-being UK Benchmark Survey. Every page tells a sad story about music teaching learning and how the VAST MAJORITY of us have failed to learn or know the HUGE educational and well-being benefits of music learning, playing and sharing the joy with others. We know too from USA data that 95% of US households have no musical instrument and the number of US students learning music has gone form nearly 50% in the 80’s to 33% and since 2000. Read on a weep! But smile if you think there is a F.A.S.T! way to fix it!!!
