Research and Development



Below are the policies we have developed which are available for download and sharing:


Commissioning Survey

First held in 2014, the Commissioning Survey asks composers all about the fees they receive in order to create work. Each year we analyse the results and produce a public report.

  • Commissioning Survey 2014 - read the report
  • Commissioning Survey 2015 - launched on the 10th August 2015, results coming soon. 

Audience Development Survey 

The audience development survey asks anyone who is producing new music to share how they access their audience and also about the growth of audiences.

Composers Marketing Survey 

We recently asked composers to tell us about marketing their work, their skills and experience. Using these findings we will continue to develop our support in speific areas of interest. We aim to share our skills and contacts with composers in order to create a sustainable future for their work and the new music sector.
