Sleep survey

Thank you so much for your interest in the sleep and music survey!

This project is a partnership between the Music and Wellbeing research unit at the University of Sheffield (UK) and the Sleep and Cognition Lab at the University of Lincoln (UK).

We are interested in sleep habits and in particular, the ways in which people use music to aid sleep.

There are lots of ways to learn about our project.

  1. The wonderful people at Research Retold have made an infographic about our project, if you would like to learn more about our work before taking the survey.
  2. The University of Sheffield has also produced this 10 minute video.
  3. Finally, there is an article that me and my team have produced for The Conversation.

Our sleep music survey

To date, our survey has been taken by over 650 people. That is wonderful and we are grateful to every single participant… but we need more. If we are truly to understand the impact of music on our sleep in the modern world we need as much information as possible from the public on what music they listen to and why.

This  survey data will help us to build lab studies that will eventually lead to new insights on how music can help us all to sleep – information that will be made totally free for us all. I promise that we will never sell this research for commericial gain.

The survey will work on all browsers and devices, but may not display fully on small screens (i.e. small mobile phones). It only requires you to read and answer questions – there are no sounds.

The whole questionnaire should take about 20 minutes; we really appreciate your responses.
