BUT the problem is bigger than exam statistics
-We see classrooms where 40% children have already given up playing an instrument.... by the time they are 8 years old!
- We see children starting music lessons who have no idea WHY they play an instrument
- We see schools with slashed budgets and limited resources struggling to keep music alive
- We see parents who are either:
not sure how their child should START with music
terrified their children will STOP playing music
