How many people cite playing an instrument as a hobby?

Yet more stats. I was reading the Keynote Music Industry report for 2010 which states:
  • 27.2% of the UK population play a musical instrument
  • 19.1% described music as their main hobby
  • Family spending on musical instruments per household increased from £15 to £21 (especially interesting in a recession)
  • UK market for keyboards (including synths and controllers) is around £10 million
