Text: First Organ Book

First Organ Book

First Organ Book, ed. by Wayne Leupold. This book is loaned to you by the American Guild of Organists – Spokane Chapter. Take good care of it. At the end of your ten lessons, if you decide to continue studying―and we hope you will, then you may purchase the book at a reduced price. Otherwise, return it to the chapter for use by future students.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Organ Shoes

Organ Shoes

Organ shoes are advisable, but not required at this time. Your teacher will discuss this with you. For the present, plan to wear a light-weight shoe with a smooth sole. Do not wear your organ shoes outside where they can pick up dirt and gravel. The smooth sole facilitates pedal technique and prevents pedalboard damage. Another temporary alternative is stocking feet, although shoes provides more support.

 

 

 

Lessons

Organ Teacher

You will each receive ten lessons from your assigned teacher, and will also participate in some supervised group practice sessions at different churches. Academy fee of $100.00 is payable in advance to American Guild of Organists – Spokane Chapter.

 

 

 

 

 

Practice

Practice

You will be able to work out all of the manual assignments at home on your piano. Arrange some practice time on the organ at your church.

There will also be group practice sessions throughout the term at different churches. These will give you experience on different types of organs, and allow you to get to know some of your fellow students. RSVP to the group if you plan to attend the group practice session with the time during the rehearsal block you will be there.
