Event Summary

Supported by Jools Holland OBE, and run by charity Music for All, the 2019 Learn to Play Day will take place on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th March, and will see music shops, teachers, venues and schools throughout the county partner with leading musical instrument brands to offer thousands of FREE music lessons.

So far, participating venues include:

-The Library in Bury St Edmonds
-The Library in Sudbury

Since being launched eight years ago, the Learn to Play Day initiative has helped thousands of people pick up and play a musical instrument. Many had never played before, while others played as a child but gave up.

Held in partnership with the Musicians' Union, the 'Take It Away' scheme and Making Music, the Learn to Play Day initiative has been growing in popularity with a record 10,000 free lessons held during last year's event.

Famed musician Jools Holland said: "As Patron of the Music for All charity, I'm delighted to lend my support to National Learn to Play Day on March 23rd and 24th. It's a pleasure to be able to share the joy of music, and this special day allows thousands to get involved as venues all over the country offer music lessons for free."

Participating venues across Suffolk are being added every day. To find your closest FREE music lesson, visit https://musicforall.org.uk/learntoplayday/
