I have a hypothesis and I need your help in collecting some data.
1. What year were you born?
2. Are you LDS (or were you raised LDS)?
3. How many years of formal music instruction have you had? (By “formal music instruction,” I have in mind private music lessons or music classes at school.)
4. Which instruments have you formally studied?
a. Piano only
b. One or more instruments besides piano (including other keyboard instruments)
c. Piano, plus one or more other instruments
If anything is unclear, please ask. (I’m hoping to refine my questions here and then set up a more formal survey.) I’ve turned off Blogger authorization for this post, so you should be able to post anonymously, if you so choose.
