What Our Students Are Saying

‘’Just starting the Hammond course and it’s already having a great effect on my play. Getting ready for my new band’s first gig this weekend and I had all my organ drawbar settings programmed in for each song. After spending a couple hours on the first drawbar lessons and trying different settings out, now I’m suddenly starting to use those as well; one song instead of switching leslie speed for some build ups now I’m just adding the last 2 drawbars (to the first 4) for that part and leaving the Leslie slow and it sounds fantastic! Thanks for this great course Marine Lacoste! I so want to rush through it but I’m going to go slow and get the most out of it - can’t wait!’'

No, you don’t NEED a vintage organ. If you have an organ clone or a semi-weighted keyboard with 9 drawbars and the Leslie effect you’ll be able to have fun with the course.  I’ll talk about how you can adapt some exercises to only one keyboard too.
