  • A comprehensive method book for organ, providing a complete syllabus for learning
  • For players or any age and with basic keyboard ability (approx. ABRSM Grade 2)
  • Can be used as a self-tutor or material for teaching
  • Concise explanatory text for greater understanding
  • Pieces cover a range of styles and include works by J. S. Bach, Buxtehude, Franck, Reger, and Walton

A single piece of repertoire is the primary focus for each chapter, with preparatory exercises providing the necessary technical work building towards the piece. Each lesson covers four main topics, which are systematically developed: practice methods, registration, fingering and pedalling, and historically-informed interpretation.

The method is for keyboard players of any age who are establishing first steps at the organ with or without a teacher. It will also serve more experienced organists who want to improve their technique.
