Tech Music Schools says they are honoured to have such influential figures present for the opening of the all new premises.
The brand new Hammond Keyboard Lab features 6 x XK1 drawbar keyboards, XK3c drawbar keyboard, XK pro system 2 manual organ and a Leslie 2101 speaker system.
Jon Lord is supporting the Tech Music 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 the 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 Lord will take time out to meet potential and existing students as well as signing memorabilia following the opening.
