Music Questionnaire analysis In order to create my own magazine, I first decided to create aquestionnaire in order to find out their opinion on music magazines and give me some ideas on how I myself should create amagazine and what to include in it. I have asked 20 people and the results were collected. The questionnaire had a various questionwhich covered musical taste, frequency of release, the price which the target audience are prepared to pay for music in general and music magazines. In addition to that, there were also some questions regarding the magazine features which the target audience find most appealing and what exactly they like about music magazines i.e. interviews or reviews etc. All of thisinformation will help me to indicate the areas which I need to focuson when producing my own magazine, in order to please the target audience and make it appealing. Furthermore, my questionnaire included a question stating ‘What title do you think will be the mostappropriate for a rock magazine?’,which helped me later to decide on the name of my magazine.
