  • Personal Project Audience Survey

Hi. I am DaEun from 10th grade and for my personal project, I’m looking into relieving stress and lack of sleep through music and sound effects. As my product, I have created a song for relaxation and sleep and I would like your feedback on the song.

It would be very helpful if you could answer this survey and give your opinion on how you felt after listening to the song. The song is around 10 minutes so please listen to as much as you can but you don’t have to listen to all. Your survey response will be recorded as anonymous.

All teachers and students are very welcome to answer the survey.

Thank you 🙂
