Bournemouth-based music store Absolute Music attracted over 2,500 visitors as part of the UK’s nationwide Learn to Play Day on 16 March.
The two-storey retail space includes a studio complex, which opened last August, and has already proved a magnet for local musicians.
"We know there isn't another music store like ours within 100 miles," explained MD Alan Barclay. "Doing events like Learn To Play Day helps people realise that we're not just a shop but we're actually here to help those people who want to learn, rehearse, record and play, as well as those who simply want to buy music gear!"
In addition to the opportunity for one-to-one tuition on various instruments, visitors were also invited to try Absolute Music's new 'Star For A Day' recording studio experience, watch live acts (including samba bands, choirs and rock singers) and browse around the over 3,150 sqm superstore and studios.
