Learn To Play Day 2019 at PMT Stores

2 Comments

The UK-wide charity event Learn To Play Day is being held in 15 of our stores this March to get more people into making music!

Learn To Play Day is the flagship event of the UK’s Music for All Charity, which takes place for an entire weekend to provide budding musicians or old hands with the opportunity to have an introductory music lesson with a professional tutor, completely for free.

Over the years, we've hosted thousands of free music lessons in PMT Stores, and this year we're hoping to really push the boat out! We've got free lessons being provided by local music tutors, Rocksteady Music School, and some big music brands too on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th March.

      Hi Cammy, we don't have any stores in Scotland at the moment, but if you go onto the official Learn To Play Day website there's plenty of free lessons available in Scotland.
