British kids can learn Foo Fighters riffs for free

The Foo Fighters are working with Europe’s biggest school of rock on a special day of free tutorials.

Rocksteady is set to launch the Just PLAY workshops which will give children between the ages of five and 16 a shot at learning a legendary Foo Fighters riff or beat in just half an hour – even if they haven’t played an instrument before.

The event, which is free of charge, is set to take place in Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, Manchester, Northampton, Nottingham, Portsmouth, Guildford, Kingston and Romford on February 16th.

Scott Monks, CEO of Rocksteady said: “If you can help a young person feel like a rockstar for a day you can inspire them into a lifelong love of making music and you can’t get much more inspirational than the Foos!”

Foo’s frontman Dave Grohl added: “Watching my kids start to play music and learn to sing or play drums, it brings me back to the time when I was their age listening to albums, learning from listening.”
