The Big Note #27 – The Department Of Youth

In this Episode of The Big Note we examine the aspects of how young people engage with Music and what happens as we grow older, amongst other things. The Majority of songs played today are new releases from Australian artists. In Michael Spitzer’s book “The Musical Human” he looks at a 2019 study commissioned by Youth Music, an organisation that champions the importance of inclusion in music making, learning and earning working to drive change on a local and national level in the UK, ensuring every young person can experience inclusive music. The study was a comprehensive review of the relationship children and young people had with music. It was found that music was young peoples’ favourite hobby, equal to gaming and ahead of sport, drama and dance.
 According to the study 97% of people aged 7 to 17 had listened to music; 67% had made music and 30% had played an instrument.
85% said that music made them happy and 64% of all the young people surveyed considered themselves musical, compared to 48% in 2006.
