Queue for music lessons as school children emulate their guitar

Independent, The (London) , Jan 2, 2006 by Sarah Cassidy

A new generation of British rock bands have clearly made quite an impression on their young fans. Inspired by the success of such groups as The Artic Monkeys and the Kaiser Chiefs, increasing numbers of teenage boys are now seeking to emulate their heroes by learning to play musical instruments.

Nearly 440,000 pupils aged five to 16 now learn a musical instrument through classes run by their local council. Around 40 per cent of these are now boys, up from just 32 per cent in 2002, according to the largest ever survey of local authority music services. Nearly 42,000 boys are now taking guitar lessons run by their local music service. A further 12,250 are learning to play kit drums, the study found.

The researchers found that girls and boys were likely to choose to learn to play very different instruments. The violin was the most popular instrument with girls with 56,000 taking lessons compared to fewer than 20,000 boys. Almost 41,800 boys choose to learn to play either the electric or acoustic guitar while this appealed to 23,000 girls. Meanwhile nearly 12,250 boys are now learning to play drum kits compared to just 3,982 girls.

However, more than 26,000 children are waiting to learn to play musical instruments because of a shortage of places. Some pupils have been on music waiting lists for more than six months. The Government has pledged that all seven to 1 year-olds should have the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument. The team of academics who conducted the survey warned that the Government will fail to reach this goal unless it radically restructures the way these lessons are funded.

The academics also argued that learning to play a musical instrument was important for all children, not just those who had a particular talent or who contemplated a career in music.

`Research with instrumental music teachers supports these findings. They believe that the benefit of learning to play an instrument include the development of social skills, gaining a love and enjoyment of music, developing team-work, developing a sense of achievement, confidence and self-discipline, and developing physical co-ordination,` their report said. The survey also showed that music lessons were not just the preserve of the white middle classes. Twelve per cent of pupils having music lessons were eligible for free school meals, an indicator of poverty.

The report called for a shake-up of music tuition to allow more children the chance to learn to play an instrument. At present local authorities are only allowed to charge for lessons where there up to four pupils. Any music teaching of larger groups must be offered free of charge " meaning that this type of tuition is unlikely to be offered.

The researchers called for this regulation to be scrapped to encourage more teaching of larger groups which they argued were needed to meet the goals of the Government`s Music Manifesto, launched in July 2004, which sets out their plans for improving music education over the next five years.

But a spokesman for the Department for Education and Skills said there were no plans to change the charging policy but welcomed the survey`s findings.

`The latest Local Authority Music Services report shows some very encouraging trends, with Music Services clearly offering a wide range of services to pupils and schools across a broad range of musical genres,` he said. `The take-up of a musical instrument has been greatest among pupils aged 7-11 where Music Services have been asked to focus their efforts, with the number of pupils learning an instrument increasing from 7 per cent in 2002 to 13 per cent in 2005.

`In addition, the gender differences have narrowed since 2002 with the report citing an increase in provision of drumming and guitar tuition having led to more boys being encouraged to learn to play an instrument.`
