I am currently undertaking a research project to investigate the job satisfaction of music teachers and the effect job satisfaction has on recruitment and retention for the music education profession. Participation in this study is completely voluntary and will require approximately 15 minutes of your time to answer some questions on a short survey. If you would like to participate in the study, please click on the link below and then follow the instructions provided on the survey. I will begin to analyze the responses for this survey in May so if you would like to participate you must complete the survey by Sunday, May 2nd. Thank you for your help with my research project and best wishes.
