  • Respected research firm
  • Online surveys of:
    • More than 2,000 singers in choruses of all kinds

    • 500 parents
    • 300 K-12 educators from a variety of disciplines

Reasoning

  • Previous research on value of instrumental music education.
  • Choral singing has often been overlooked by researchers—this data fills that research gap.
four primary findings
Four primary findings
  • Far more people sing in choruses than participate in any other performing art.
  • People who sing in choruses demonstrate characteristics that make them remarkably good citizens.
  • Children who sing in choruses have academic success and valuable life skills.
  • Parents & educators report a troubling decline in choral singing opportunities for children.

Benefits for children who sing…
  • Children who sing in choruses demonstrate valuable life skills.
  • Parents and educators from every discipline

attribute a significant part of academic success to singing in a choir.

benefits for children who sing1
Benefits for children who sing…
  • Parents date their child’s improvements in a variety of areas to their joining a choral group.
  • That, and the breadth of benefits described by both parents and educators, points to a unique ‘chorus effect,’ one that isn’t simply replicated by participation in other activities.

Chart 8: Choir Participation and School, Community Participation

Furthermore, 76% of educators say they can tell which students in their classes participate in choir.

the adults matter too
The adults matter, too…
  • Educators tell us that schools where parental involvement is high are:
    • Significantly more likely to have music programs than schools where parental influence is low (96% v. 81%)
    • Significantly more likely to have choir programs than low parental influence schools (80% v. 60%)
  • Parents, educators & choral singers identify these priorities for training young singers:
    • Develop listening skills
    • Choose music that kids can relate to
    • Provide lots of positive individual & group feedback
decline in choral singing opportunities for children
Decline in choral singing opportunities for children…
  • More than one in four educators surveyed said there is no choral program in their schools.
  • More than one in five parents said that there were no choral singing opportunities for their children in their communities
  • 65% of adult choristers say they got their first choral experience in elementary or middle school, down from 69% in 2003.
making the case for choral programs
Making the case for choral programs
  • Choral singing is an accessible entry point for arts exposure, with fewer barriers—economic, cultural, or educational.
  • More choral singing opportunities in schools and communities could be a good strategy for bolstering student achievement and engagement in schools.
  • Leveraging the benefits that choruses bring to children, adults, and communities is good for schools and society.
