The Academy offers Principal Study for both undergraduate and postgraduate organists.

We also offer a one-year Organ Foundation Course, designed for Gap-Year students preparing either for Oxbridge organ scholarships or for those wishing to develop their organ playing and choral direction skills to a high level before university or conservatoire studies.
