COLLABORATE WITH DISTINGUISHED SOLOISTS, HOLDERS OF PRESTIGIOUS CATHEDRAL POSTS AND DEDICATED TEACHERS
You will learn the crucial aspects of playing, from solo repertoire in a wide variety of styles to improvisation, harmonium and organology.
Frequent performance opportunities are complemented by study trips abroad to play important historic instruments. Many of our organists hold cathedral or church positions that complement their studies with real-world experience.
The Academy has two mechanical-action practice organs built by Flentrop Orgelbouw and Peter Collins, and daily access to our main teaching instrument, the four-manual classical organ by Rieger in St Marylebone Parish Church. In 2013, a three-manual symphonic organ built by Orgelbau Kuhn was installed in the Duke’s Hall, with generous support from Sir Elton John and Ray Cooper. We also own a rare 1763 Neapolitan organ by Michelangelo and Carlo Sanarica, which is housed in nearby St Mark’s Church.
