Learn To Play Day is the flagship event of the UK’s Music for All Charity, offering a free “taster” lesson on a musical instrument at hundreds of UK venues. Details for 2018 coming soon.

Join us for the UK-wide event which will once again offer the general public the chance to have a free ‘taster’ lesson on a musical instrument. In 2017, over 120 venues put on events ranging from music shops to music services and even churches! People who have never played and people who used to play, all came on the day to try an instrument.

Whether you have always wanted to play or you used to play, this is the day for you!
