The mission of the Organ Training Program is to create a new generation of organists and church musicians.
We offer free piano and organ instruction to children ages five through 17. Students receive weekly 30-minute private lessons from doctoral students studying at the University of Notre Dame. At the end of the year students perform recitals for family and friends on one of the Fritts organs of the University of Notre Dame.
Before studying organ and learning to negotiate hand and pedal technique, all students learn the fundamentals of reading music and keyboard skills. While lessons for students of all levels are available, students with two or more years of piano lessons are given priority.
