Abstract This article is the documentation of a sub-research question of a larger empirical study that employed quantitative methods to identify variables that are impacting on the delivery of music in the learning area Arts and Culture in South Africa extrapolated from questionnaires. Analysis of the data revealed that educators lack specialisation in music and have limited training in any of the art forms. Significant relationships were established between the educator and involvement in music activities within and outside of the school environment.
