Deadline to complete the survey: Monday 4 February.

This survey aims to build a robust national picture of the place of composing and creative music-making within music education. It has been devised by Sound and Music, the national charity for new music.

We want to hear from anyone involved - directly or indirectly - in teaching music, or using music to work with children and young people. Whether you are a teacher in a secondary school, a musician working in a youth club with young singer-songwriters, part of a hub or organisation supporting music-making, a school headteacher, or working in a nursery encouraging toddlers to get noisy - we want to know more about what you’re doing, how you are being supported and how you see the role of creative music-making today. 

The survey will take you roughly 10 minutes to complete. By participating, you are directly helping Sound and Music to develop policies and campaigns in support of a creative music education.

Note: within the survey, “composing and creative music-making” includes any means of making new music, including improvisation, song-writing, instrumental composition, and electronic music-making.
