Organ Playing Tuition

Do you already play the organ, or wish you did? If you are around Grade 6 standard on the piano and would like to try some lessons on the organ, or already play the organ but would like to brush-up on a particular technique so as to more regularly play in your church, an SCT Bursary, offering £250 is available for up to 6 lessons with an approved teacher.

One grant recipient writes:

"I feel very fortunate to have been awarded a course of lessons towards improving my organ playing.

Like many other keyboard players who find themselves with Sunday services to play on a large and complicated machine, I stand in need of a few flight control lessons ... not least the pedals - for that immensely satisfying bass oomph!

Lessons with my (brilliant and knowledgeable) teacher have set me on the road to the correct approach to pedal playing as well as extremely useful tips on registration, among other things. Certainly, for me, these concentrated one-to-one lessons are invaluable for improving my key touch and pedalling... and the end result is a much more confident service delivered on the following Sunday."

There’s no test at the end! This is an opportunity to improve your skills or learn new ones, to help you – and the congregation – to enjoy organ music played on your church’s own instrument. Please return the Bursary Application.
