comment What should I look for in speakers for an electronic keyboard
I can concur on the PC speakers with a subwoofer. Depending on the particular set, you can even use them as a PA in a small space. I've performed live on iPad with a set of PC speakers with a subwoofer and been very satisfied with the results.

comment How can I make my keyboard sound like a Hammond organ?
I may be reading too much into the original poster's question, but I got the impression that the request was for a B3-ish organ sound, with the percussive attack and Leslie, not that the poster was thinking drawbars at all. Agreed that if you want to be able to really tweak the sound in a Hammond-like way, you really need the drawbars!

The Garageband "Hammond" isn't too bad, either.

comment What's the best method for learning how to play triplets over quavers?
The 3-2 rhythm in combination sounds like "not very hard, not very hard, not very hard" when you have the rhythm right. Assuming triplets in the right, and duplets in the left: (RL)NOT (r)ver(l)y (r)hard. Try tapping that out on the table to get the feel of it. Once the "not very hard" comes out right, you should have the muscle-memory to work with.

comment Composition of music suitable for concentration
The "Vertical Color of Sound" book goes into considerable detail on a couple of different pieces and I think might be very useful to you.
