The proportion of children regularly making music has increased significantly since a similar survey was carried out in 2006
The majority of young people are active musicians, according to a report by national music charity Youth Music. In partnership with polling organisation Ipsos Mori, the charity asked more than 1,000 British children aged seven to 17 to describe their music habits.
Some 67 per cent of respondents reported engaging in some form of music-making in the past week. In a similar survey in 2006, just 39 per cent of young people reported doing so.
