Parrt Time Evening Hammond Organ Course

Gary Baldwin’s Hammond Organ Course in Blues, Gospel, R’n’B, Soul, Jazz and Latin

The LMS is offering a new ten week Part Time Hammond Organ Course for intermediate/advanced keyboard or organ players. The course takes place on weeknight evenings from 7 – 9 pm. Our Part Time groups are kept small, usually 3 students, so as to ensure each individual receives adequate attention. All part time students are encouraged to play at our monthly live gig at an external venue. The gig is a great opportunity for students to build on their confidence and live performance experience alongside full time students and LMS graduates.The course is designed and taught by Hammond Organ master Gary Baldwin. Classes will cover blues, gospel, r’n’b, soul, jazz and Latin genres with particular focus on the styles of Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff, Billy Preston, Booker T, Richard Groove Holmes, Walter Wanderley and more. Playing techniques covered include bass pedal playing, left hand accompaniment, drawbar registrations and improvisation.
