Organ Lessons

There are over 30 organ pupils within the Keyboard Studies Programme. We have enjoyed notable successes so far: a recent student is currently a Cambridge Organ Scholar reading Music, and several others are now pursuing careers within the profession as teachers and performers. There are three university student Organ Scholars at Leeds Cathedral in addition to a Sixth-Form Scholar, each receiving regular tuition in solo performance and accompaniment. Students are given performance opportunities in the annual Leeds International Organ Festival. The Programme’s organ studies strand benefits from a close relationship with the Royal College of Organists and the University of Huddersfield. Plans are afoot to publish a new tutor book for beginner organists, with encouragement and inspiration as its driving force.

The Keyboard Studies Programme has access to an excellent selection of Diocesan instruments. In addition to Leeds Cathedral’s four-manual Klais organ, there are fine Skrabl instruments in St Patrick’s Huddersfield and St Joseph’s Bradford. For practice and additional teaching, the Cathedral Chambers facility has four small pipe organs and two digital instruments.
