    I would like to thank you for taking time to answer this questionnaire. The results will help towards my final dissertation for a BA (Hons) in Music from Essex University (in collaboration with Colchester Institute). Anonymity is assured for any comments quoted in the final document. I should be particularly interested to receive evidence or case study examples that you might have to demonstrate music lessons and/or music performance can be of general benefit to young people.

    (Choirs, Recorder Groups etc)

    • If so how often:



    Would you encourage your pupils to take up a musical instrument? YES/NO

    If Yes – Why?


    1. Do you thinkthat cognitive skills developed through music lessons are the same as those required for academic success? YES/NO


    1. Do you think that self-confidence &/or self-esteem can be developed through learning a musical instrument? YES/NO


    1. Do you thinkthat the perseverance required to learn a musical instrument can be carried through into improving academic performance? YES/NO


    1. Do you think that the interaction involved in performing music with others is beneficial in developing general collaborative & social skills? YES/NO

    Additional comments

    Thank you again for your assistance.
