Calling Queensland organists of all abilities: Organ workshops kick off soon!

Are you an organist? Do you play regularly or have you not played for a while? These sessions are for you!

RSCM is committed to assisting church musicians at every level, and these workshops are designed to equip intermediate and/or advanced organists with skills in playing hymns, voluntaries and improvisation. These workshops will be of interest to organists who wish to improve or reinforce their skills. You may be renewing your acquaintance after time away, or you may already be playing for services regularly.

Workshops will be conducted by Dr Phillip Gearing, Director of Music at St Mary’s Anglican Church, Kangaroo Point. He has had extensive experience in liturgical music and as a teacher.

The first workshop is taking place at Nazareth Lutheran Church, Woolloongabba on Saturday 7 July from 9am -11am.  There will be a further five workshops in the series occurring over a three month period at times most convenient for those registered.

Pricing:
RSCM Members & Friends – $120
Non-RSCM Members – $180 (includes membership)
RSCM does offer scholarships in some circumstances.
Please contact us if you would like more information.

Hurry! These workshops begin on 7 July and places are limited!
