AfarineshebartarThe Sound of the Next Generation is a new research report published by Youth Music, a national charity investing in music-making projects that help children and young people develop personally and socially as well as musically. The charity aims at those who don’t make music because of who they are, where they live, or what they’re going through.

Youth Music runs online studies with a total number of 1,001 subjects aged from 7 to 17 across England. This youth-focused survey has an in-depth-analysis into the various ways young people engage with music-making, value music and the profound impact music has for them.

According to their research music is has a remarkable role on young people’s favorite pastime. Youths are well aware of how music influences their emotions and refer music as an important factor of their wellbeing. The soundtracks are carefully linked to their real lives and past memories. Young people use music to carry and reflect their feelings just like a musical score for a film to change their emotional state, and to adjust their mood.

Additionally, the research shows that the creative process of making music has more and deeper impact than listening to it. Young people interviewed said they see music-making as a critical part of their lives – something which makes them feel useful and helps explore their emotions.

Youths are the most  likely group  to feel lonely, compared to other generation and based on this study those who made music in the last week said they were less likely to say that they ‘often feel lonely’. One of the reasons which music helps to combat loneliness is due to its group activity which is a way of making new friends. Plus Making music in groups has broader social value by providing opportunities to communicate and connect with other people, creating a sense of belonging.
