The TPOPS Academy...
We are pleased to be encouraging the next generation of organists by providing regular tuition to school children
studying at Robertsbridge Community College.
Robertsbridge Community College is a very successful school with a strong ethos to support children in both their academic studies and in their character enhancing extra-curricular activities.We are delighted to be working there, alongside Head of Music, Mr. Matt Lewis, offering students free organ lessons with top organist Michael Wooldridge. Students are also provided with electronic home organs so that they can practise between lessons. This project is in its very early stages but already some students are showing great promise. In time we will be running trips in assocaition with the College so that the students can experience our ESN Wurlitzer and other instruments.
A trip to the East Sussex National...
In January 2017 we took our TPOPS Academy students on a day trip to see and hear our East Sussex National Wurlitzer.
Following a demonstration by Michael Wooldridge, the students were shown behind the scenes, in the blower room
and the pipe chambers, and then each given the opportunity to try playing it for themselves. We also enjoyed a
lovely two-course lunch in ESN’s Hunnington’s Restaurant. Everyone loved the day.
