SOS

As part of our educational outreach we have set up…

SOMERSET
ORGANISTS’
SUPPORT SCHEME

Our latest initiative is a scheme to offer a free one-hour visit to give guidance on the organ you usually play.

WHO IS IT FOR?

  • For players and prospective players of all abilities and ages
  • You may be a pianist who has been asked to play the organ
  • Or be interested in understanding the organ better
  • Or just someone wishing to improve their playing


WHAT COULD BE INCLUDED?

  • How the mechanism works
  • What the stops do and which are the best ones to use
  • How to play a hymn or song effectively
  • How to use the organ to encourage a congregation to sing their best
  • How to start to use the pedals
  • How to practise effectively
  • Where you can get help to learn more and develop your skills in the future

These are just suggestions, but the sessions can be tailored to individual needs.
