Where did the idea for Player 1 come from?
Here at Player 1, we feel that learning music should be a fun, welcoming and positive experience, especially for kids. This should start from the moment they walk in the door. When we started back in 2104, Michael had a retro game collection that had been a labour of love for many years. He really enjoys sharing his collection with other people, so it was only natural that he would build an arcade open to the public that preserves these timeless arcade games for future generations.
