LEARN TO PLAY DAY is a nationwide event and aims to offer FREE music lessons and workshops to people who might not have time or budget to otherwise learn an instrument, but it also helps raise money for Music for All.

The Music For All charity does great work to bring the enjoyment of music and learning to people, communities and schools all round the UK. In the past two years alone, our Learn To Play Day events have helped Music For All to...
raise funds to pay for a violin and lessons for the talented nine-year-old Aleksandra Burroughs, whose single mother was struggling to support her daughter's talent.
arranged for wheelchair-bound cerebral palsy sufferer Shaun Shears (also a talented musical comedian) to receive a heap of music gear.
helped to equip a whole music classroom at Mandeville School for pupils with severe physical and learning difficulties.
All our activities on the day are FREE, but if you can, please put a donation in one of our charity boxes or buy one of our wristbands. You’ll help us raise money for a really worthy cause!
