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 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.

Christina
My son has been taking piano and singing lessons with Laurel for 2 years, and he has honestly enjoyed every lesson. Laurel provides a holistic approach to music education that goes far beyond reading music. In her lessons, she incorporates music theory, ear training, exposure to a variety of musical and performing styles, and fosters creativity and expression. She gently encourages my son to stretch and try different styles of music. Through all of this, Laurel is unfalteringly patient, positive, and kind. I feel incredibly lucky to have Laurel giving my son such a well-rounded, positive music education, and I highly recommend her!

Laurel is a great teacher. My kids are loving piano. She makes it interesting for them while also making sure they learn. They’re learning to read music as well as play and have fun.

Dr. Kostritsa has been a wonderful teacher for my daughters. They have made excellent progress with him over the last two years. His flexibility in allowing my older daughter to select some of her own music really helped with motivation. It's also inspiring that he composes and performs his own music as well.
Vladimir
Both of my children took piano lessons with Dr. Alex. He is a patient instructor who puts the needs of his students first. I like his demeanor with the kids as well. Dr. Alex is always in high demand, yet he is flexible and easy to work with.
Denise
My son has been taking lessons with Alex for over five years. They have developed a fabulous rapport and mutual respect. Alex challenges my son and helps to further his skill level and technique. He provides support and suggestions when choosing new pieces to play. Alex is flexible with regards to accommodating schedule changes and make up lessons. We couldn’t be more impressed with Alex as a piano teacher and mentor for our son and we are thankful that he shares his time and talents with young piano students.

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 …
