The new report by the UK’s largest music charity Youth Music states that these games are having a dramatic effect on children taking up a instrument for the first time.
The research found that 19 per cent of young people said they now play an instrument because they were inspired to do so after playing a music-based console game.
Of the 12 million young people in the UK, aged between three and 18, more than half play music games on video game consoles.
