The figures of musical learning in France

In France, music enjoys a great reputation. The great French composers, from Debussy to Chopin, have contributed to the creation of a very rich French musical heritage. They have integrated music into the centre of French culture and mores. This is why current music consumption is almost daily in France: on average, each French person listens to 2 hours of music per day. Unfortunately, musical practice does not enjoy the same notoriety. Few French people play musical instruments, but more and more want to get started. In this article, we give you the figures of musical practice in France.

 

 

People who have never played a musical instrument but who would like to do so
 

We are based here on a study conducted by the FIFG in 2017. But first of all, a simulated study had already been conducted on the subject in 2006, which allows us to see how societal aspirations have evolved over the past decade. In 2006, 31% of French people wanted to play a musical instrument. Today, this figure has risen 13 points to 44%, representing an additional 8.5 million French people in 11 years. This significant increase shows how much more and more people are attracted to music.

Today in France, nearly one in two French people would therefore like to be able to play a musical instrument, i.e. nearly 30 million people.

 

However, among the great diversity of instruments on the music industry market, the piano is the masterpiece. Indeed, for 57% of the French, the stringed instrument is the most attractive. But who are these people who appreciate the piano so much? Zoom in on their profile.

Gender

 

More women: 69% of women who do not know how to play an instrument but would like to play it have a particular inclination for the piano, compared to 45% of men. 

 

 

Age

 

Rather young people aged 18-24 years: 79% of those under 25 years old who regret not being able to play a musical instrument would like to learn to play the piano. However, the figure decreases over time: 62% for 25-34 year olds, 57% for 35-49 year olds and 50% for 50-54 year olds. There is a slight increase for those over 65 years of age, whose share amounts to 56%.

 

 Diploma level

 

Rather a high level, Master’s or Doctorate type: 71% of graduate graduates who regret not being able to play a musical instrument would like to learn to play the piano.

 

 Typical profile

 

A 21-year-old female with a high level of education (or in the process of obtaining one) who has never played a musical instrument.

People who know how to play one or more musical instruments but are disgusted with their learning experience
 

Let’s start with a simple analysis of the data collected during this study: the proportion of people who have already learned to play a musical instrument decreases with age: 56% of young people under 25 have already learned to play a musical instrument, compared to 44% of 25-34 year-olds, 38% of 35-49 year-olds and 34% of 50-64 year-olds.

These data are precious because they are particularly revealing: French society is clearly moving towards a democratization of musical learning. It is in this context that the application La Touche Musicale was born. We want to be part of the current trend and make music learning more accessible.
