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 various types of organs since I was 12 years old. Each organ is different and there are many different styles of organs and keyboards. Each one can create a unique sound that makes creating music a fun and entertaining experience. I enjoy teaching people how to make music using their talents the best way they can. Not everyone is an expert but everyone can make music.

Excellent teacher, very patient.

Have had one lesson so far with James. Seems competent and sensitive to what you want to do with your goals. Really too early for me to tell for sure.
Pat
Jim is a great teacher, he makes you feel like you are really doing good playing the piano.
There is no pressure and he never is in a bad mood!
If you are having trouble with a certain part of a lesson, he repeats what is being taught in a totally different way.
He even knows what you are doing wrong and helps you correct that problem. Always in a level voice as he understands.
I am a Senior student and have never taken music lessons before. I am very pleased with Jim’s teaching methods.
This your chance to learn something new and beautiful and be proud of yourself. I recommend these lessons totally!

Learn to play the king of all instruments! Receiving a degree in organ performance from Brigham Young University allows me to be on the cutting edge of all innovations in this area of the music industry. You won't ever get bored learning to play this instrument. It is a constant challenge but is incredibly rewarding.

About Levi

There are ways of expressing emotion and feeling emotion that can only be felt through music. I believe this is because music has the ability to connect all of us with the divine. My first priority with every student is to help them feel the music they are making on a level deeper than how the mus

Tyler
Levi is not only an excellent and qualified instructor, but also cares deeply and personally about each of his students. He has been a joy to work with.
David
I am a beginning organ student and just learning the beauty of the sounds this wonderful instrument creates. Levi has helped me interpret hymns for church playing in a way I never before thought of or felt. He already has me playing half the hymns I play in church with the pedals. He pushes me “just right” to help me accomplish more than I would think possible. I highly recommend investing your future piano or organ abilities with Levi’s expert and thoughtful tutoring.
Janet
Levi has been patient with me and supportive of my working through processes at my own pace.

"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 …
