Supported by Jools Holland OBE, and run by charity Music for All, the 2020 Learn to Play Day will take place on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th March, and will see music shops, teachers, venues and schools throughout the county partner with leading musical instrument brands to offer thousands of FREE music lessons.
So far, participating venues include PMT Bristol on Rupert Street who will be offering free taster lessons on rock instruments, plus plenty of in-store fun and excitement on Saturday 28th March only. Further venues are set to be announced over the coming weeks.
Since being launched nine 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.
Fellow artist Jamie Cullum added: "National Learn to Play Day gives everyone a chance to play an instrument, even if they've never played before. This wonderful day introduces thousands to the magic of music making, and often reunites people with a lost passion for playing. Get involved and perhaps discover a skill you thought you didn't have!"
