Learn to Play ’22 – Creating more music makers

Learn to Play ’22

As a partner to Black Lives in Music, Music for All’s vision is that there should be no barriers to experiencing the joys of making music. Their flagship event,  Learn to Play ‘22 will take place on 8 & 9 October 2022.

From newbies wanting to try an instrument for the first time, or lapsed musicians hoping to reignite lost love for an instrument, participants can visit nationwide venues for a free 10-15 minute taster music lesson. See the latest Learn to Play ’22 venue map and find out more.

Why take part?

Learn to Play ’22Learn to Play is a great opportunity to discover musical services offered in any given region. As advocates for achieving equality at all levels of music making, Black Lives in Music fully supports the vision for the weekend, and hope you can offer support either as a teacher, encouraging your local venue/music shop/service, or spreading the word to anyone you feel needs encouragement and support to take part.

 Last year Cornwall Music Services held their event at Turo Library, they said:

“We had a fantastic day on Saturday at Truro Library for the LTP event, with a constant stream of children and parents trying the instruments.

Many thanks for all your help and support with the event.”

Whilst in Lancashire Aziz Ibrahim (former guitarist with Simply Red and The Stone Roses) worked with the local music services, School of Rock and Lancashire County Council to offer guitar lessons at Helmshore Mills, they said: 

“The verbal feedback from all of those taking part was really positive and hopefully we will have encouraged some more YP to sign up for lessons.”

Alongside the weekend’s face-to-face events, Music for All will be adding a new set of YouTube tutorials to its series of lessons for subscribers. Hosted by well-known musicians these videos feature hints and tips on playing a variety of instruments.
