How to complete the survey

Survey

Pathways to Music

Creative Scotland’s Youth Music Initiative and Young Scot have teamed up to consult with young people across Scotland, aged 16 to 26, to find out what it is they really want and need to know to help them engage with the music industry in Scotland.

As part of this we have created a short survey that will help us to develop a new project called ‘Pathways to Music’, funded by Creative Scotland’s Youth Music Initiative. Pathways to Music is a project which aims to provide young people with everything they need to engage, participate and influence the Scottish Music Industry.

Below I have put the link to this survey on Young Scot Says Who? and would ask that you forward it onto all of your networks so as many young people, aged 16 to 26, can have their say. There is also a prize draw to win £50 of iTunes vouchers, so hopefully that will be an incentive to take part and give us their views and opinions.

If you have any questions on this then please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Many thanks in advance for your co-operation with this.
