Interesting Fact - Music

According to a study carried out by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, UK schoolchildren are taking up pop instruments due to the influence of reality TV shows like the X Factor.


(In 1999 the instrument plaed by most kids was the recorder, in 2014 it is the electric keyboard.

1999

Recorder – 19%
Keyboard – 9%
Piano – 8%
Acoustic guitar – 5%
Drums – 4%
Violin – 2%
Flute – 2%
Electric guitar – 1%
Percussion – 1%
Bass guitar – 0%

2014

Keyboard – 30%
Piano – 28%
Recorder – 28%
Acoustic guitar – 20%
Drums – 14%
Electric guitar – 13%
Violin – 12%
Flute – 7%
Percussion – 6%
Bass guitar – 5%

I would think that with synthesisers, the electric keyboard encompasses all the instruments.)
