What Is the BYU Organ Workshop?
The BYU Organ Workshop is an intensive four-day program designed for organ skill-building for all organ levels. Enhance your organ-playing skills for your own enjoyment, for church service, or for teaching. Discover and improve your talents and proficiency as you learn valuable techniques and tips from skilled instructors. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced organist, the workshop has much in store for you. Classes with customized instruction and supervised practice are offered for your specific level.
The BYU Organ Workshop will help you develop your own organ-playing proficiency as well as acquire key pedagogical skills for teaching. Study with faculty members who are capable and talented organists with years of experience. Smaller classes will give you personalized attention and hands-on instruction and practice.
Three workshop highlights give participants inspiring evenings to remember—a workshop Hymn Sing, an organ recital, and a behind-the-scenes visit to the organs at the world-renowned Tabernacle at Temple Square and Conference Center in Salt Lake City, as well as with organs in other locales.
The BYU Organ Workshop is an extension of the organ portion of the Workshop on Church Music, which ran at BYU between 1979 and 1999. The BYU Organ Workshop started as its own program in 2002 and is in its 12th year of operation.
