Blog » Can Compose: National Music Educators' Survey

9 Oct  

Sound and Music has just released the first results of its Can Compose, National Music Educators' Survey, which aims to reveal the barriers faced by young people looking to compose and create their own music.

 

The report found that:

 

-97% of educators agree there should be more opportunities for students to compose their own music

-42% report a fall in young people’s confidence to compose between Key Stage 2 (ages 7-11) and Key Stage 3 (ages 11-14)

-Only 27% of school teachers signpost to external opportunities, meaning few young people are able to progress their talent or interest

-There are over 600 barriers reported that prevent young people from creating their own music in the UK

-Near unanimous agreement that creating and composing should be a central element of music education

 

Head over to Sound and Music for the full analysis.
