Learning the Organ

 

If you would like to learn the organ, various schemes are in place to help you, some of which are listed below.


St Giles' Church, Oxford, runs a 'Learn the Organ' scheme, and the Newbury Organists' Association offers introductory organ lessions.

We would particularly draw your attention to the Introduction to the Organ event in Oxford on Saturday, February 16th, for young keyboard players. Details

You might also be interested in the Ushaw Organ Weekend, May 31th - June 2nd.
