Learn to Play Day set for March
The annual Learn To Play Day event, a free, nationwide initiative to get people of all ages and abilities playing a musical instrument, is set for Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th March.
Since its launch eight years ago, the Learn to Play Day initiative has helped thousands of people pick up and play a musical instrument. Many had never played before, while others played as a child but gave up, the organisers say.
Held in partnership with the Musicians’ Union, the ‘Take It Away’ scheme and Making Music, the Learn to Play Day initiative has been growing in popularity with a record 10,000 free lessons held during last year’s event.
LTPD’s patron, Jools Holland says: ‘I’m delighted to lend my support to National Learn to Play Day on March 23rd and 24th. It’s a pleasure to be able to share the joy of music, and this special day allows thousands to get involved as venues all over the country offer music lessons for free.’
Paul McManus, CEO at Music for All, adds: ‘While we all may have different tastes and preferred genres, there is no doubt that music is something that is universally loved around the world.
‘Our Learn to Play Day events are all about spreading the joy of playing a musical instrument and inspiring those of all ages to take up something that will not only have health benefits for the future, but that also brings so many people together.’
