Private Organ Teacher

I was trained as a classical pianist taking private instruction for ten years, and discovered in 1982 that the Hammond B3 organ was my true love. I primarily teach the blues style of performance, and will teach you proper chord voicings, use of the volume pedal and the drawbars. These techniques are what completely sets the organ apart from its piano counterpart.

I've been taking lessons from Steven for I think two years now and he's helped me so much not only in reading music but also in ear training and in my song writing. He's incredibly patient and fun to work with. He also has a really nice cat.

Private Organ Teacher

I teach how to play the Hammond organ: either a full size B-3, M-3 or A-100 or else one of the portable XK series. We learn how to use the drawbar harmonics to instantly create different sounds, apply the percussion effects, work the volume pedal & control the rotating Leslie speaker or simulated Leslie. Also organ-friendly voicings are studied as well as various techniques for controlling the keyboard. i'm particularly good at helping pianists switch over to the vastly different organ playing!

About Jim

My career in music began at an early age (four!) with classical piano lessons until the age of thirteen. After expanding my musical horizons in high school listening to jazz, blues and rock I attended Cabrillo College in Aptos, CA where I studied jazz & music theory with renowned jazz educator Ray

Private Organ Teacher

I have been playing organ professionally for 9 years. I own a 122R Leslie cabinet, and I've used countless Hammond organs and Leslie cabinets through the years.

I can teach anything about organ, and I can show students a few tricks and things to think about while playing organ.

He has a good ear and can help quickly with transcriptions. More importantly, he also gave some practical advice.
Ami K.
My son enjoys his music lessons with Jonathan, who is infinitely patient teaching what can be a challenging instrument. My son responds well to Jonathan's instruction, and he appreciates having access to a professional performer as a teacher. Jonathan encourages my son to learn a variety of music, including both challenging classical pieces and more recognizable popular and jazz pieces, which helps to sustain his interest in the lessons.

I love when I have students that want to learn the organ - it is such an amazing instrument. Whatever your background is, I’ve worked with all levels: complete beginners, students with piano background, and those who’ve already spent time mastering the instrument. I strive to tailor each lesson to whatever the specific goal of the student is. Whether it is for enjoyment, or to increase service playing and repertoire skills, I’m happy to work with all!

Online Organ Teacher

I teach both baroque and modern technique on a tracker action instrument, which is then applicable to modern instruments. My teaching style is rooted in developing a technique that is centered, focused, and free. Beginning organ students should have reached an intermediate level of piano performance and be tall enough to sit comfortably on a lowered organ bench with feet touching the pedals without flexing.

About Mark

I am an active performer eager to teach organ, piano, voice, and provide collaborative keyboard accompaniment to vocalists. I teach youth and adults. Private lessons are given at my church in Worcester or online through the TakeLessons platform. I also teach in-home piano lessons. My students have

"Mark is a treasure. After our daughter’s very first organ lesson, she adopted better practice techniques and keener musical interpretation skills. Mark is witty, kind, personable, generous, and of course talented. He is a role model both as a musician and as a person. A. also started taking voice lessons with Mark, and her growth both as a singer and as an organist has been exponential as a result. We count ourselves fortunate to know Mark, and we are grateful that he is our daughter’s teacher."

"I have been taking organ lessons from Mr. Raymond L. for a few months now. He has been nothing but friendly and patient. He is very understanding of difficult schedules, and is very accommodating when I need to change my scheduled lesson.

Raymond L. is also an excellent teacher, requiring perfection on the practiced piece before he will allow you to move on. I appreciate this, seeing that slipshod foundations will only harm me later on. Apart from the technical books, he also assigns a variety of pieces to practice on - allowing for the practice of the different techniques, as well as keeping things fresh and interesting."

3 Reasons Why Piano Players Should Also Learn the Organ

There are many reasons why a music student may find themselves learning to play piano on a keyboard rather than on a baby grand: cost, space, or simply lack of access, for example. Versatility on a range of keyboard instruments is also an extremely useful string for any pianist to have to their bow, and can lead to greater practice and public performance opportunities, and even excellent opportunities to earn a little money on the side. The organ, although not the most prevalent or popular musi …
