Our 2017 membership survey aimed to find out what members think about Making Music as an organisation, what they think and value about their membership with us and what they think about the specific services, resources and support we offer. It was completed by individuals representing 20% of our members groups – a big thank you to all of them.
View the full results and analysis of Professor Stephanie Pitts' survey of Making Music member groups and their connections with local communities.
This report is the result of a substantial pilot study Professor Stephanie Pitts has undertaken which begins to give us a clearly evidenced picture of what we think is the very significant social and economic impact of music groups on their communities. We very much hope this will lead to a more extensive piece of research as we continue to pursue these important questions together.
