There are so many great reasons to take up a musical instrument; the numerous benefits to school education it can bring to children; the much-needed escape from the daily routine it can provide to adults; the doors it can open socially and professionally are just a few.
Since its inception just a few years ago, Learn To Play Day weekend has become one of our biggest and most enjoyable events of the year. Last year's weekend saw us give over 600 completely free music lessons.
All lessons are completely free - scroll down to find out what's on offer. So, whether you've never played, or you used to play, Learn To Play Day weekend is not to be missed!
