News: Learn to Play Day back in the UK

Learn to Play Day is back for the fifth successive year on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th March 2016. Orange Amplification are taking part in this national event by giving away FREE, on Saturday 12th March, their Rock Guitar Syllabus worth £14.99!

The aim of Learn to Play Day is to encourage people of all ages and experience to start or revisit playing a musical instrument. This year’s event is expected to be the biggest yet, offering more than 12,000 FREE taster lessons on a musical instrument at more than 120 music venues, schools and shops across the UK.

The sixteen-part Orange Rock Guitar Syllabus, created by professionals, is easy to follow, lots of fun as well as being an exciting new way to learn rock guitar. The course is split into three sections, Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. It offers learners an easy to use platform in which to develop their rock guitar abilities by allowing them to learn anytime via their phone, desktop or tablet. The course covers everything from basic chords, strumming patterns and scales and gently builds players up to more advanced techniques such as two-hand tapping and barre chords.

National Learn to Play Day is the ideal way to start, or get back into, playing a musical instrument and Orange Rock Guitar Syllabus can help you continue to learn to play the guitar long after the event.

Full details of the event, including participating venues and local appearances, will be found at over the coming weeks. To find out more about the charity, Music for All, go to or visit Music for All’s Facebook page at
