Creative participation in music by adults

A large and growing number of Australians work in music as a second job or volunteer

Between 1997 and 2007, the number of people who do some kind of work (paid or unpaid) in the music industry has increased from 260,300 to 335,100 in 2007 (up 29 percent).

Work in the rest of the culture and leisure sector experienced even stronger growth during that timeframe.
