The Keyboard Studies Programme was founded in 2016, with David Pipe (previously Assistant Director of Music at York Minster) appointed as its first Director. The Programme was launched to provide high-quality organ and piano tuition across the Diocese to choristers, school pupils and adult learners. With a national decline in students learning the organ, the programme aims to reintroduce this instrument steeped in tradition to students of all backgrounds, teaching them valuable musical skills and opening doors to opportunities in further education, and skills in choral direction and accompaniment.

There are currently five instrumental teachers in post, providing tuition in a family of related keyboard instruments (organ, accordion and piano). We are grateful to the Liz and Terry Bramall Foundation, Wade’s Charity and a number of other trusts that provide bursaries so that all talented children in state education are able to receive lessons, irrespective of their financial circumstances.
