Aims of the Study

I'm aiming to find out how people become interested in music, who encourages their enthusiasms, and how they acquire the skills needed to pursue their musical ambitions.  Whether you're a singer-songwriter, an orchestral musician, a regular concert-goer or someone who only plays the piano when everyone else is out of the house - if you have a lifelong interest in music, I'd love to hear your story.

About the Survey

The survey consists of mainly open-ended questions, to encourage you to tell your story at any length and in your own words.  All the writing I collect will be used anonymously in publications arising from this research: please leave your name and e-mail address at the end if you'd like to hear how the project progresses, but be assured that I won't use those contact details for any other purpose.
