Primer Level for Organists and Service Playing for Pianists
June 24–28, 2013
Organist instructor: Kantor Kevin Hildebrand
Theology instructor: Kantor Richard Resch
This dual-track workshop is intended for novice organists as well as musicians who play pianos or electronic keyboards for worship services. Organists who have had little or no formal training, who have been drafted into playing the organ, who do not play pedals or use only one foot are ideal candidates. Pianists who play for worship will learn more about how to lead congregational singing of hymns and liturgy from the piano.
All students will have group classes in theology and hymnody with Kantor Resch. Pianists and organists will meet separately with Kantor Hildebrand and Dr. Grime to learn more about service playing on their respective instruments.
