Calling all music lovers – take part in the UK’s Learn to Play Day and get a free music lesson. 

Taking place 24-25 June, Learn To Play Day is the flagship event of the charity Music for All in partnership with the Musicians’ Union, the Arts Council ‘Take It Away’ scheme and Making Music.

The aim of the initiative is to get everyone, young and old, and of different levels of experience to be inspired or return to learning to play a musical instrument.

Free music lessons will be taking place in thousands of locations across the UK. As many as 12,000 free lessons were given during the 2016 edition of the event.

The Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) will welcome Lower Than Atlantis drummer, Eddy Thrower, who will be in the studio helping to teach attendees how to record a drum-kit.

Eddy said: ‘I’m so pleased to be taking part in National Learn To Play Day with ACM. Learning an instrument is an invaluable skill and helps kids across the board in their education – so to be able to work with ACM on this is fantastic.

‘I’ve been very lucky in my career so far, but it has certainly come with a lot of hard work, I’m looking forward to giving back some of the knowledge I’ve learned along the way so far in this industry.’

ACM’s Learn to Play Day is taking place on 18 June. Find out more.
