    I am a qualified and experienced piano teacher with excellent ABRSM results at all levels. I am on the Manchester Committee for EPTA (European Piano Teachers Association) and I organise informal concerts to allow pupils experience in performing. I have given recitals over the years at venues, including Chester Cathedral and the Bowdon Rooms. Many of my pupils have gained distinctions, both in their exams and in music festivals. I have been teaching piano and accordion since 1989 and have taught many adult pupils. I have also taught a number of pupils to play the organ up to the standard where they have been able to play hymns and music suitable for church services.

    Phillip Sangwine Organ Teacher (York) Picture The importance of correct footwear for playing the organ cannot be underestimated. Poorly fitting shoes or trying to play with bare feet will result in the player having difficulty in concentrating on good playing and phrasing. Instead the player will be spending just be trying to find the...
  • My Favourite Organ Composers

    Organ Teacher (Gloucester) Picture My favourite composers for the organ have got to be Messiaen and Eben. Of course there is also Bach and Sweelink.
  • The Organ: Not Only A Liturgical Instrument

    Organ Teacher (North London) Picture When people think about the organ, generally the mind goes to the Mass, the hymns, and the accompaniment of the choir. I believe that organ music is much more complex and satisfying than this.

My favourite works have to be the 18 Chorale Preludes from Leipzig and the Orgel Buchlein. I think these works offer great depth of musicianship, emotion and perfection in the compositions. I also enjoy...

    Organ Teacher (Birmingham) Picture Most pianists, if asked about the organ, usually respond "Oh, but I couldn't possibly play the organ!". To non-organists, it can seem a rather mystifying instrument, requiring two hands and two feet to be coordinated and offering an array of complications such as different keyboards (manuals)...

Famous names such as Wurlitzer and Compton built amazing pipe organs, which thrilled thousands of movie theatregoers. These pipe organs were 'voiced' to imitate the symphony orchestra and were designed to accompany silent...
