Learn to Play Day 2017 – let’s make some new musicians!



Saturday June 24 and Sunday 25 are only 12 weeks away and plans are now fully underway for our sixth annual Learn to Play event.

We already have a great combination of music shops, rehearsal rooms and community music projects signed up and the public are already going to the locator map to find their nearest participating venue.


Everyone in the industry is welcome to get involved with the event, simply drop an email to:

clare@mia.org.uk or call 01403 800500

We will be working with AR Marketing, as usual, to generate as much PR for the event as possible and this will include our usual popular instrument competitions in the music magazines. Please let Kim know if you would like to be involved:


The posters and digital logos are currently being made and we will shortly start sending them to all signed-up venues.

Plus, our friends at the Musicians’ Union are once again supporting the event and we will shortly have details as to how they can help you on the day.

If this is all new to you, please get in touch, all we are trying to do is to work with you and to create a whole new bunch of new and returning lapsed musicians in your community!

And…don’t forget that we are also partners in the Make Music Day UK launch on Wednesday June 21st in our efforts to create a whole week of music activities in the UK!

If you would to also (or either) be involved in this, details are at:
