ISM Surveys

The ISM regularly runs surveys on different issues affecting musicians, or highlights surveys from other organisations.

The results often inform our policy and campaigns work. Recent surveys have taken place on work place discrimination, Brexit, various aspects of music education provision and our annual survey of teaching and accompanying fees.

Visa survey

We are currently running a survey to find out more about the experiences of musicians from non-EU/EEA countries visiting the UK to perform, compose, or promote their music. We are researching the process of applying for different visas to visit the UK.

If you are a non-EU/EEA musician who has applied for a visa to visit the UK, please fill out this survey. Or if you are a booking agent, artist manager or agent who has applied for a visa on behalf of a non-EU/EEA musicians to visit the UK, please fill out this survey.

If you are a musician who is a UK or EU national, please do not fill out this survey.

The survey is open until Friday 30 August.

If you have any questions regarding the survey, please email Dr. Naomi Bath at [email protected]
