Call for participants with a visual impairment or severe visual impairment to take part in an online survey investigating everyday musical experiences
I am a postgraduate researcher from the University of Leeds, studying for fulfilment of a PhD. As part of this process, I am inviting participants with a visual impairment or severe visual impairment (sight impaired or severely sight impaired) to take part in an online survey, aimed at investigating their everyday musical beh aviours and experiences. The survey will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. Participants must be aged 16 years or older.
This questionnaire makes up the third and final study in a project aimed at investigating the role of music in everyday life for adults and adolescents with a visual impairment in the UK. It is hoped that this stage of data collection will allow me to reach as many participants as possible across the UK, helping to build a nationwide picture of the current nature of music engagement for this population. The survey contains questions relating to demographics, engagement with music in everyday life, use of technology, and engagement in live music events. The survey will also ask participants to reflect on issues of accessibility relating to musical engagement. Large format paper copies of the survey are available on request, and completion of the survey over the phone is also possible. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to request either of these options.
The survey is available online at the following link https://leeds.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/musical-experiences-of-vi-adults-and-adolescents
Participants with a variety of musical or non-musical backgrounds are welcome, including those who feel that their engagement with music is minimal; a range of perspectives is essential at this stage of the project.
