Here is a method that will train organists properly for the traditional role of accompanying hymns and providing suitable service music. It is a comprehensive approach that introduces the techniques of organ playing step-by-step.

Aimed at pianists of grade 5 standard plus, The Church Organist begins by introducing the organ - its console, manuals and stops - before exploring the pedals, good manuals and pedals technique, coordinating hands with feet, proper use of stops, the basics of improvisation and many other skills important to today’s church organist.
