Biggest music lesson in Cambridge

A Harmonica Playathon that’s billed as ‘the biggest music lesson in Cambridge’ will enable hundreds of people to learn to play a new instrument.

On 17 March, at 11am, head down to the Corn Exchange, pick up a harmonica and start to make some notes, guided by expert player Steve Lockwood (above). At the end of the 50-minute masterclass, everyone gets to play along with Steve.

The event is part of National Learn to Play Day, which provides free music lessons across the country. Simon Pollard, owner of Millers Music, which has organised the event, said: “This is an exciting opportunity to share the benefits of music, and the impact it can have. Music education struggles due to the lack of budget and resources.” Everyone who attends will receive a free harmonica on the door. All you need to do is grab your friends and register beforehand.
