EDUCATION

Lessons

As a perfect compliment to piano study, organ lessons are available from local professionals throughout Southern New Brunswick. Contact us today for help finding a qualified teacher.

The RCCO encourages education of the student both as organist, but also as musician, by basing examinations on organ proficiency, as well as theoretical and musicological skills, and essential, everyday church music "must-knows".

Workshops

Our centre believes that education is not just necessary for the aspiring organ student, but also that it is essential for even the most experienced of professionals.  In order to maintain a high standard of church music excellence, the Saint John RCCO hosts POW! (Pipe Organ Workshop!) Events for the ongoing professional development of our members.

Remember also that RCCO Examinations are beneficial for organists of any age to attempt.
