Learn to Play Day
For those who have always wanted to play saxophone, clarinet or flute, this day is the opportunity to come along for a free taster lesson at Dawkes Music Shop in Maidenhead. Register online to arrange your desired time slot.
In line with the BBC Get Playing initiative, one of the partners, UK Charity “Music for All” created the flagship “Learn to Play Day” to provide people of all ages, ethnicities and origins the chance to have a go on a musical instrument. Each year, Dawkes Music has provided up to 80 free lessons on the Learn to Play Day in a supportive and inspiring environment with qualified teachers. Over the years, some of those people whose first contact with an instrument on the LTPD are continuing their musical journey by participating in local ensembles, performing in Care Homes, at schools and village fairs.
