Learn to Play Day 2020 – get involved!


The ninth annual Learn to Play Day weekend is happening on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th March 2020. Learn to Play Day weekend will once again offer the general public the chance to have a free ‘taster’ lesson on a range of musical instruments. It also gives your business a unique opportunity to reach new customers…

2020 is shaping up to be yet another great year for Learn to Play Day. There are already 100 venues all across the UK signed up to hold an event. Participants include music shops, orchestras, churches, rehearsal rooms, community music projects, music services and more… All are very welcome!

This is an excellent opportunity to increase awareness and visibility of your shop, or organisation within your local community. You will be amazed at how many people don’t know you’re there!

There’s still time to get involved! Could your organisation open up its doors for the weekend? Remember; the basic premise it to offer a free, short taster lesson to inspire new and lapsed musicians and welcome them to our wonderful world of music making. You can be as creative as you like with how you do this.

Suppliers – is there a special incentive you could offer to your retailers who are participating with LTPD? Could you run your own event or support a venue local to you? Could you donate some prizes for competitions?
