Instruments for Beginners

Starting out on your musical adventure can sometimes be overwhelming but, the team here at Play It Again UK we will be by your side every step of the way. 

So what's stopping you? With many teachers working online at the moment, you can even learn in the comfort of your own home - or ,if you wish to teach yourself we can offer help in selecting the right tutorial book for you. 


When it comes to buying your first instrument, you will see that there are lots to choose from, Learning on a poor quality instrument can have a damaging effect on your learning, and you may find the instrument spends more time in the workshop being repaired than being used by yourself. We work closely with Yamaha because we mutually believe you don't need to compromise on the quality to get a good price. 

All our instruments go through a pre-sale check in our on-site workshop.
