Jools Holland Supports National Learn To Play Day


The Music for All charity has announced that Jools Holland is to become a Patron with immediate effect.

The naming of Jools Holland as a Patron coincides with the promotional campaign to highlight the UK's second National Learn to Play day to be held on Saturday 16th March. It's expected that over one hundred locations, including schools, music stores and arts organisations will participate by offering free music lessons throughout the day.

The UK's inaugural National Learn to Play Day in 2012 provided over 10,000 music lessons on guitar, piano, drums and a range of orchestral instruments. It was hailed as a huge success by the music industry, music educators and parents alike.

Music for All is the charity of the UK musical instrument industry and was conceived with one aim in mind: 'Making More Musicians". Since its foundation in 2006 the charity has pioneered initiatives to promote 'Learn to Play' experiences to people of all ages and backgrounds, and to highlight the wide-ranging benefits of music making.

Jools Holland commented, "I am delighted to help Music for All in their quest to inspire more people to participate in music making, either for the first time or to return to playing after having lapsed. I hope that my involvement will help the charity reach more people and get more people "having a go".

Paul McManus, Chief Executive of Music For All commented "We are absolutely thrilled to have such a musical icon supporting our charity. Everyone know Jools and his passion for all the musical genres, we could not have a more suitable Patron!"

National Learn To Play Day is organised by the charity Music For All in partnership with the Musicians Union, Arts Council England's Take it away scheme, Music Teachers.co.uk and Musicradar.com.
