ABRSM’s Making Music is a longitudinal series of reports tracking trends in music education over the last three decades. It provides the music education sector with data we can all use to promote the value and importance of music and insight into the needs of teachers and learners.
We published our first report in 1994. This market research was drawn from our own customers, but provided a valuable insight into music teaching and learning more generally in the UK. We published two further reports in this format in 1997 and 2000. In 2014, we decided to complete a new edition of the Making Music series, expanding it by working with an external research company, Critical Research, and with partners in the music education sector. This edition gave an even clearer picture of music teaching and learning in the UK and has been cited by many other organisations in the music education sector.
