Survey Results

Hey guys thank you for responding to my survey. I got 30 responses, pretty cool

1. From this I have been able to determine that there are a lot of pianists in RSA, with 17/30 choosing piano as their main instrument. Violin, Viola, and Cello had 2, 2, and 3 responses respectively. The others were wind instruments and handbells

2. Most respondents feel as if their instruments "matches" their personalities

3. Less than half of respondents have "strong opinions" on certain instruments, while most do not.

4. This one showed a lot. Piano players seem to believe that their instrument is God's chosen one, as "Piano is the best by far. The players are usually the intelectuals who like reading and music more than their friends hehe." Some of these people were a bit opinionated and have quite the ego. Proof: " Strings are the most important."

5. 19/30 chose their instrument, 9 did not, 2 felt like not responding. Unsurprising.

6." Would you consider yourself intelligent?" The majority gave a pretentious "yes," while the rest said "I guess I'm smarter than some people." And then there was the one lonely "I don't know" person. I guess RSAers think highly of themselves.

7. People really like Chopin, Tchaikovsky, and Beethoven. Makes sense, as this survey was populated by pianists.

8. Nobody was really strongly disliked. Wagner was the most disliked with 5 responses. I actually have no clue why people dislike Wagner.

9. Most respondents do compose, no preference per instrument

10. The Romantic Period was favored, followed by Classical, Postmodern, and Caveman Noises

11. 25/30 like the Musescore community. Yay!

12. The majority rated the RSA community highly (except for the one guy that rated is 1/10)

13. Most said "yes" when asked is they liked playing their instruments, all except 1 of the "no" responses were pianists, if that means anything.

14. "hANDBELL JESUS descended from the heavens and told me it was my sacred duty to ring hANDBELLS until the day i died." " I thought sax was sexy" These responses say enough.

15. This question was on practicing. Most people practice less than 1 hour a day. 5 people practice 40 hours a day, apparently (yes i get the joke dont woosh me)

16. Most people aren't first chair... ok cool

17. " Do you enjoy playing solo, small ensemble, or large ensemble?" It was a perfect split between the responses, satisfying to look at.

18. Most people enjoy the community of their music band/orchestra/whatever except for 3 people who put "kind of annoying".

19. "Describe your personality" Some people were serious, some people put stupid responses, most put their meaningless Myers-Briggs test results. At least everyone is an introvert.

20. People (for the most part) liked my lame quiz. Hurrah for me!

So I just want to thank you party people for taking the survey. If you want some more info on the results, I can provide it to you. Have a good day mates!
