The Organ Training Program teaches lessons to all levels of players ages 5-17, though spaces in each level is limited. Students at the intermediate and advanced levels are required to have access to an organ on which to practice. The Sacred Music Academy will assist in seting up practice times on local instruments as needed.
Students with no piano/keyboard experience will begin with introductory piano lessons. Depending on age, lessons last between 20-30 minutes.
Students with several years of piano background are eligible to begin organ lessons. This instruction usually begins with organ-specific exercises that may be practiced on a piano or keyboard. As pedal work increases, the student will need access to an organ on which to practice. Lessons last between 30-40 minutes.
Students with a significant amount of piano lessons or who have already started organ lessons are eligible to study advanced organ technique. The student will practice regularly on the organ. Lessons last between 40-60 minutes.
