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:
- Adela Harrison - Piano Teacher, Ilkley
- Garforth Brass Band at Garforth Miners Welfare Hall in Leeds
- PMT Leeds
- Ivories and Strings in Long Preston, Yorkshire Dales National Park
- Musicroom York
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.
Famed musician Jools Holland said: "As Patron of the Music for All charity, I'm delighted to lend my support to National Learn to Play Day on March 28th and 29th. 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."
