Learn To Play Day - 2013

We are participating in the National Learn To Play Day on Saturday 16th March

The Learn to play day (LTPD) is a nationwide event organised by the "Music for All" charity which is intended to help people to start playing. At Settle Music we will be offering people a 10-15 minute session, free of charge, with a local music teacher and we aim to send them away enthused because they can play a tune.

We have arranged for a wide range of teachers to be here covering many families of instruments and one of our suppliers will be here with a selection of instruments from across their range to have a look at.

See our timetable, below, for details of what's on offer.
