LC4 Music LAB Overview


LC4 Music Lab

An Affordable Modular System for Educational Musical Instrument Labs

The Yamaha LC4 Music Lab system provides music educators with an intuitive, flexible way to teach a musical instrument to a group of students — all together, in smaller groups, or one-on-one — from any location in the room. The LC4 comes with everything an 8-student lab needs to be set up with almost any electronic instrument in your group-teaching environment.

Expandable to accommodate classes as large as 48 students, the LC4 uses a network of headphones and microphones to make it seem as if each student is isolated in his or her own practice room; ideal for private practice or one-on-one instruction with the teacher. But with the touch of a button, the practice room walls can be instantly removed for group study, teacher-only broadcasts or “all together now” ensemble performances. Instructors even have a mute button that disables the students’ instruments when it’s time to pay attention. Exclusive features like LC4 Wireless Kit that enables wireless control of your music lab, the heavy duty Yamaha CM500 headset microphones and the Mega Group quick configuration button set the LC4 apart from its contemporaries.

Wireless Control of the Classroom

The optional LC4 Wireless Kit will allow you to control the lab with an iPad (not included). The Wireless Kit includes networking hardware, connector cables and wireless headphones, allowing you to use the LC4 Controller App. The exclusive Yamaha LC4 Controller App lets you position student icons in the app to match the physical layout of instruments in your lab. When using the hardware controller by itself without the app, you're limited to viewing only eight students at a time. But with the LC4 Controller App, all student icons can be seen and selected from one convenient interface. Add names to student icons, take attendance, make notes and even broadcast your iPad music library to the class – a first in Music Lab technology!
