This new collaboration will ensure that LCCM students perform and practise on professional-standard instruments supplied by the college’s new partners, and will also enable LCCM to hold regular master classes and clinics with TAMA and Zildjian artists.
Ian Aguado-Bush, Product Manager at TAMA and Zildjian said:
‘We recognise LCCM as one of the most progressive music institutions in London. TAMA and Zildjian has always been focused on education, which is why we are very proud to partner with LCCM, where students can play and experience our very top level of drum kit. We believe that the college will benefit from advanced learning with the new equipment provided.’
LCCM offers several drum courses including its BMus (Hons) Music Performance and Production, where drummers can study Music Production alongside their drum lessons.
Richard Brook, Subject Leader for Drums at LCCM, said:
‘We are dedicated to nurturing the professional development of our students at LCCM. We want to ensure that every person who studies with us gets the knowledge, skills and networks they need to build the career in music they want. Our students and teachers have applauded the new partnerships with TAMA and Zildjian for helping to take the kit and facilities at LCCM to the next level.’
