- Daniel Moult, Course Director and head of the highly acclaimed organ department at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. One of the UK’s most versatile organists and hugely in demand as a concert organist and organ teacher and with many CD and DVD recordings to his name.
- Jeremiah Stephenson, assistant director of music at All Saints’ Church, Margaret Street, London W1 – a young professional already in demand as a teacher and player
- Simon Williams, Director for RCO East, South and South West and Organist & Director of Music at St George’s Church, Hanover Square in London’s West End.
Teenage organists who are coming on or considering The Organ Student Experience (TOSE) course in Cambridge in July will find this an excellent preparatory day, whilst those not quite ready for TOSE (c.grade 5–grade 6) will benefit from the focussed tuition across a range of discplines which most organists need to master.
What you can expect from this day
- Two sessions of repertoire coaching on Baroque and later music
- Coaching on keyboard skills such as sight reading, transposition and score reading
- A session on choral conducting and accompaniment
You will mostly be taught in graded groups.
The organs are all in London’s West End and within a few minutes’ walk of Oxford Circus underground station
- All Saints’ Church Margaret Street—superb 1910 four-manual Harrison & Harrison
- St George’s Church Hanover Square—three-manual Richards, Fowkes & Co in 2012, one of the finest organs in the UK for playing Baroque music (and much more)
- The Welsh Church Eastcastle Street—three-manual Hunter of 1908 restored by Nicholsons in 2018, one of London’s hidden gems
