The inclusion of creative activities in general music education has become a common practice since the late 1960's in various developed countries such as the UK, USA and Australia. However, creative activities have not received a similar emphasis in Hong Kong, either with curriculum planners or with teachers in schools. In order to assess the current situation of applying creative music-making activities in Hong Kong secondary schools, a structured questionnaire was designed and distributed to all secondary schools. This paper discusses the results of this questionnaire plus some of the most important implications. Copyright © 1999 UNIPRINT.
