Private 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 g

I have been taking organ lessons with Mark Mummert since May, 2020. He is an excellent teacher. I am an accompanist at a small church. I started as a pianist but there is a greater need in our community for organists. Mark has been so valuable in improving my organ playing. He has emphasized organ fundamentals as well as technique. I am impressed as to how much we have accomplished with virtual lessons.
Jo Anna Savage
It is obvious that Mark M. is a well seasoned teacher who doesn't waste time so that a great deal of material can be explained and demonstrated. I am happy to have found someone who can guide me for many years and understands the demands on a church organist.

Joseph
I've always had an interest in music, but never had any formal training. Laurel's tutelage has taken me from an absolute novice who could barely plink out a few notes to being able to read and play along with sheet music. She's employs a very collaborative style of teaching wherein we work together to identify the kinds of music I want to play, and make regularly progress towards reaching my goals. It's been a fantastic experience.
Kevin
I decided to wait until middle age to begin taking piano lessons so that my brain would be as resistant as possible to learning.

I'm glad I found a teacher as patient, friendly and knowledgable as Laurel. I've been taking lessons with her for almost a year. She tailors the sessions to my spooky interests and encourages me to push my abilities.

When we began I had barely touched a piano in my life. Now I'm able to read sheet music, recognize relative pitches and play a list of my favorite songs with independent hand movement.

I'd recommend Laurel to anyone who wants to learn piano regardless of age or skill level.
Ritu
Laurel has been my kid's piano teacher for a little over four years now. My kids absolutely love her, and I think that is what makes the difference because I want my kids to enjoy taking lessons. Laurel is very knowledgeable and patient. She makes sure students learn both reading music and playing by ear. My kids have come a long way with reading music and playing the piano, and I think a big reason is because of Laurel.

Rene is incredibly knowledgeable but that doesn’t prevent him from breaking down the basics to help me as a beginning singer.

He’s very informative, explaining the why and the how, and doing so in a way that’s easy to understand. It’s helping me establish the foundations of musicality while working on the physicality of developing my muscles, mind and body, to be successful with this new skill.

Aside from the art/skill of singing, Rene has been patient and flexible with my nomadic lifestyle, which can be susceptible to weather, connectivity, and a myriad of other disruptions. I don’t wish him another student in my circumstances, but he’s been willing to work with mine!
Tyler
Rene is a great guitar player and a great teacher! He has an incredible ability of assessing where you are currently at in your guitar journey and using that’s information to determine what lessons/knowledge you need in order to achieve your music goals.

Private Organ Lessons Near You

The organ is an instrument with one or several keyboards that produces music using either pipe divisions or electronic means, depending on the type of organ. The first organs date back to almost 300 years B.C.E. The water organ, invented by Ctesibius of Alexandria was played at games and races throughout the ancient Roman and Greek civilizations — not a far cry from the electric organs played at stadiums and fields in our modern world! 

Today the organ continues to be a popular instrument that you might hear at a concert hall, cathedral, or even a sporting event. If you’ve always had an interest in learning how to play this timeless instrument, then allow our organ tutors to help you realize your musical dreams. Here at TakeLessons, we feature organ lessons for beginners and adva

Why Learn to Play Organ? 

Learning how to play the organ is both a rewarding and enriching experience. And the good news is that if you already know how to play the piano, learning to play the organ is easy! Organs, especially large cathedral style organs, can look like complex, challenging instruments, but at their most basic level, they're all about keyboarding. If you're already comfortable playing piano, you'll find it much easier to navigate the multiple keyboards and pedals on an organ.

Playing organ also provides many professional opportunities for aspiring musicians. Since the instrument is largely used in public arenas, there are several positions for organists throughout today's cities. By learning to play the organ, you'll be able to land gigs in churches, local theaters, concert halls, and sporting events.

But did you know that learning to play an instrument like the organ is also good for your health? Studies show that studying an instrument can help to:

  • Improve your cognitive skills
  • Enhance your multitasking skills
  • Boost your self-confidence
  • Improve your memory
  • Reduce stress
  • And more!

The Best Way to Learn Organ and What You'll Study in Organ Classes

If you’re learning to play this instrument, you might head to the library for some books on playing the organ or log onto the internet for online tutorials. But these resources can only go so far. What if you have questions on a certain technique? Or what if you begin to develop bad habits without even realizing it?

When it comes to learning a skill like playing the organ, we recommend taking private lessons. During these on-one-on organ lessons, you receive instruction from a certified tutor who is committed to your progress. Unlike when you learn through books or videos, your organ tutor can answer your questions and provide feedback to ensure you’re properly mastering each technique. Your tutor will go at a pace that best accommodates you and teach according to your preferred learning style. And because each lesson is catered specifically to you, you can choose which topics most interest you and work toward your unique goals.

Sample Curriculum for Organ Lessons for Beginners

Organ lessons for beginners might cover some of the following topics:

  • Proper posture and hand position
  • Organ anatomy and operation
  • 12 major scales
  • Simple organ songs
  • Musical notation and music theory

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Organ Classes

Your teacher might choose to cover the following topics:

  • Harmonic and melodic minor scales
  • Pentatonic scales
  • Chord progressions
  • Rhythm patterns
  • Pedal exercises

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Organ Lessons

What you'll learn in advanced lessons is highly dependent on your individual interests, but your instructor might choose to cover some of the following topics: 

  • Baroque and modern techniques
  • Practice different styles like classical, contemporary, rock, gospel, and hymnals
  • Organ shouts
  • Squabbling
  • Audition coaching and performance preparation

The Fast Way to Find a Private Organ Teacher

Finding organ lessons near you shouldn’t be a headache. That’s why we strive to provide all our students with affordable and flexible organ lessons. To start, we invite you to choose between in-person or online lessons. If you’re interested in meeting with your tutor virtually, all you need is an internet connection and access to a smartphone, computer, or tablet.

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.
