Al Murray the comedian will be offering a free music lesson to UK citizens at the Chappell of Bond Street music store located on Wardour Street. The music lesson will be offered on March 31st and is a way to kickstart the inaugural ‘National Learn to Play Day’ that has been organized by the UK charity Music for All.
The Pub Landlord will be at the Chappells store from 11am until the middle of the afternoon doing a meet and greet with fellow musicians and offering one lucky person a free lesson on the drums.
Visitors can pre-register to watch the session or register for their own lessons with Chappells keyboard and guitar tutors. The staff at Chappells will be around all day to help visitors try out new instruments and brose through a large selection of special offers on instruments.
Statistics show there are 15 million people in the UK that either want to play an instrument or used to play one. The Day is designed to welcome people into music shops around the country and to inspire them to get playing. People are often surprised to discover that they ARE musical and simply need a musical “experience” to get them inspired to start playing.
Nigel Hill, Store Manager at Chappells told us, “This is a great initiative to introduce people to the fun they can have making music and what could be more fun than to meet and have your first music lesson with Al Murray! We look forward to welcoming visitors to Chappells on Saturday 31stMarch and helping them take their first musical steps.“
Paul McManus, Chief Executive of Music For All commenting on the event said, “Music for All knows how much music can change and enrich people’s lives. We are hosting the annual Learn to Play Day to allow as many people as possible to experience the wonderful world of making music”.
The charity is also proud to have partnered for the event with the Musicians’ Union, Arts Council England’s Take it away scheme, MusicTeachers.co.uk and Musicradar.com
