On Saturday 12th April 2014, the UK’s National Learn To Play Day returns to invite the general public to participating music stores and venues across the country to have a free "taster" lesson on a musical instrument.

This year, Learn To Play Day has teamed up with mobile guitar app FourChords, to give away 10,000 free songs to help budding guitarists play on the day.

FourChords Guitar Karaoke, developed by Finnish music app developer Musopia and available on the iPhone and iPad, is an app which presents songs in four easy-to-play chords. Recently passing the 1,500,000 plays from its extensive songbook of the latest chart-toppers and well-loved classics, FourChords helps people enjoy playing the guitar quickly and easily.

Organised by Music for All, the charity of the UK musical instrument industry. Learn To Play Day works hand in hand with its partners, instrument manufacturers, music shops and other venues, celebrities, musicians and many more, to encourage everyone to join in this unique musical learning experience.

Jools Holland is the patron of the Music for All charity, and partners for the event include the Musicians’ Union, the Arts Council England’s Take It Away scheme and Musicradar.com

Paul McManus, CEO of Music for All and organiser of Learn To Play Day said; “Our goal is to inspire people to learn and enjoy musical instruments and having Musopia’s support with the 10,000 FourChords songs is a great opportunity to reach more aspiring musicians. Many consumers are using smart devices for leisure activities and now having the ability to help them learn an instrument through an app is a great fit for Learn To Play Day.”

Paula Lehto, CMO of Musopia said; “Over 80% of guitar beginners give up within 6 months, but with FourChords we help them to play their favourite songs almost immediately and keep them playing. Learn To Play Day is a fantastic event which we’re thrilled to be involved in and which shares our key objective – to get people playing, and enjoying, music.”

The 10,000 song downloads will be available for free within the FourChords App from Learn To Play Day on the 12th April 2014. For more information, visit www.learntoplayday.com and www.fourchords.com
