I studied organ in college and have played organ in churches for almost forty years. You at least be at the intermediate level in piano before you are ready for organ lessons. You will learn technique for manuals and pedals. You don't have to aspire to play in public if you have access to an organ in your home or elsewhere where you can just play for your own enjoyment.
About Miriam V.

I have taught private piano lessons to all ages and levels for more than forty years. I prefer to teach in my home and in certain situations I teach in students' homes. If I teach in a student's home, there must be a piano or keyboard on the first floor of the home. For lessons in your home, you will need to pay an additional fee for my travel expenses. I teach sightreading, rhythm, musical expression, technique and music theory. The student will need either a piano or keyboard available for practicing between lessons. Titles of method books to be purchased will be given to the parent at the first lesson. If a student has books that were used with a previous teacher, I will consider continuing in those books if they are the appropriate level for the student. I enjoy sharing my love of music with my students. I am a patient teacher and I consider the individuality and goals of each student. I was a church organist and accompanist for many years.

My kids really like Miss Miriam. My 8yo and 5yo currently take lessons with Miriam. Miriam is always flexible to work around changes in our schedule.

Ms Miriam V is a kind, patient and a knowledgeable piano teacher. Both of my daughters love to have her as their teacher.

Miriam is the most punctual, professional and loving teacher we have experienced. If I could give her six stars I would.
