Some of the biggest names in rock are supporting National Learn To Play Day on Saturday, March 31.
This is a new scheme launched by Music For All, offering free music lessons to the public. In all, over 60 instrument shops around the country participating. Now it’s been confirmed that Ian Paice of Deep Purple (pictued here) will be calling into Drumwright in Reading to lend a hand. Elsewhere, the Whitesnake trio of guitarist Doug Aldrich, drummer Brian Tichy and bassist Michael Devin will be helping out at Sheehan’s in Leicester.
Says Nick Mason of Pink Floyd about this initiative: “Being given the gift of being able to create music is an incredible thing and most people don’t allow themselves this pleasure. That’s a shame. Try it, you could just make your life a whole lot more fun”.
