Get Alive! campaign on Classic fm

Click here for the first podcast. If you would like further podcasts please email and we will send them on a disc.

Find out about the power of playing a musical instrument. Everyone enjoys music and everyone can learn to play music, but only 20% of the UK realise all the benefits that playing music can bring. So, the Music Industries Association (MIA), under their public facing brand ‘Play’, and Classic fm are working together to promote all the positive aspects of making music.

There are many benefits to playing music and we’ve divided our campaign into three areas – Get Healthy!, Get Back!, Get Smart. for more information click Find out More above

This campaign will:

  • Show you how to find a music teacher
  • Tell you what to consider when finding a music teacher
  • Help you find the right musical instrument
  • Offer advice about making your purchase
  • Help you find a musical instrument shop
  • Inform you of other music-making opportunities

To support the campaign Classic fm will be running a number of programmes discussing the benefits of music making

“Learning to play an instrument is not only fundamental in developing new skills and musical awareness, but it is a fantastic communicator. Learning to play the piano was for me without a doubt the best thing I could have done” Myleene Klass

We hope this campaign inspires, informs and motivates you to learn an instrument. If you have any questions or views you would like to pass on to the MIA and Classic fm, please click here
