Exploring music making report

One of the three priorities in our five-year-plan (which we started working to in 2017) is to welcome even more kinds of music groups to become part of the Making Music community. 

With a grant from the Arts Council England, we engaged Fiona Goh to look into this for us, and she delivered her report at the end of 2018. 

Making Music, Making Communities - Report

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.

A Culture Strategy for Scotland - Conversation

The Scottish Government is currently writing A Culture Strategy for Scotland and Making Music has the opportunity to shape its development by representing the views of our members. We hope that this strategy will provide opportunities to celebrate and strengthen Making Music member groups.
