What role does music play in the life of young people?

There are around 7.5 billion people in the world, and a large number of them are young people. Do all young people have enough time for music? Is music a "common hobby" or maybe something exceptional?

That means that everyone has a little time to spend on music, some more, some less. Perhaps not all young people have enough time to listen to music, but luckily they all get into their music every now and then!
