How many new beginner pianists started piano lessons with you this academic year?
Back in November 2018 we asked for your help in gathering some figures together on beginner pianists. One hundred and eight-four teachers contributed to our on-line survey. Between them responsible for teaching 1211 adult and children beginners.
The Teaching Beginner Pianists survey is back again this year and once again we’d love your help in gathering the data.
How many beginner pianists did you take on at the beginning of your 2019 academic year?
DOING THE SURVEY
To take part click on the link or scan the QR code. It’s a very short, simple on-line survey and only takes a couple of minutes to complete. The survey is open until Saturday December 14.
THE BIG QUESTIONS
The big questions behind the project are:
- Are the numbers of primary school children starting to learn the piano stable, rising or declining?
- Are the numbers of adults starting to learn the piano stable, rising or declining?
By taking part in the Teaching Beginner Pianists survey you’ll be helping everyone in the profession to find out more about what’s going on. Together, if we discover the numbers of beginners are in decline then maybe we can collaborate to consider what action can be taken.
If you took part in last year’s survey and offered to be contacted again about this we will be in touch during December via a separate email. In the meantime please do complete this survey as before.
To take part in the survey click on the link or scan the QR code. The survey is open until Saturday December 14.
The findings from the survey will be published early in 2020.
