TECH MUSIC SCHOOLS Opens New Hammond Keyboard Lab

I have, for some time, been personally very committed to evolving a credible education program for budding Hammond Players, especially aligned to the more contemporary Hammond music styles.
I formed ‘Hammond Player’ as our UK music tuition and product knowledge umbrella operation and the Hammond Player DVD has helped to introduce basic Hammond performance styles to many aspiring performers.

More recently ‘Hammond Lab’ has been introduced as the format for where such educational activities can take place and already this is proving a most beneficial resource to our Hammond Centre UK retail activity.
In order to develop our education program further I have been trying to devise a new, structured tuition system which can be tailored to the needs of the modern Hammond player and most importantly utilised as a pre and after sales service to our customers.

I am therefore extremely pleased to announce that Hammond Organ UK have been working closely with the London based ‘Tech Music’ group to produce not only an exciting new approach to Hammond tuition but also to create the very first main contemporary Hammond education centre in the country.
We are obviously extremely pleased with this development and would encourage as many prospective Hammond players as possible to contact Keyboard Tech for further information on their education program fro Hammond.

King of the keys Jon Lord is set to cut the ribbon and officially open the new Hammond Keyboard Lab at Tech Music Schools on 28th November 2009. Joining him will be renowned Hammond player James Taylor. The day will start off with some amazing performances from a selection of Tech Music School tutors, followed by a master class and the official opening of the lab in the afternoon.

Tech Music Schools are delighted to be teaming up with Hammond to introduce the jazz/rock legacy of keyboards to the school. Not only will students be in ore of the brand new lab fully equipped with 12 high end work stations, they will also be able to take their learning potential to the max by taking part in extra private lessons throughout the year if they wish to advance their technique on this legendary instrument.

Having gone through a complete make over during the summer, the schools have extended their high end educational facilities by adding a 4
th building to the establishment. This houses the brand new Hammond Keyboard Lab featuring 6 x XK1 drawbar keyboards, XK3c drawbar keyboard, XK pro system 2 manual organ and a Leslie 2101 speaker system.

Jon Lord, best known for his time spent playing with the 70’s Progressive Rock band Deep Purple is supporting the schools in their decision to teach specialised modules in Hammond organ. The 1 Year Diploma, 1 Year Cert HE and 3 Year BMus Degree students will take part in learning this amazing instrument, there will also be a specially devised part time course and private lessons available purely for the Hammond Keyboard.

As well as opening the doors of the lab, Jon will be taking the time to meet potential and existing students as well as signing memorabilia following the opening. Tech Music Schools are honoured to have such influential figures present for the opening of the all new premises.
