Training Schemes

Training schemes are available across the country. As well as those listed below there may well be some available through Local Organ Associations. Each of those listed below have different requirements, whilst sharing common objectives of encouraging and supporting the playing of the organ and offering performance opportunities. Some schools also offer training through their music departments, details of can be found on the Organ Scholarships page. If you are aware of any schemes not listed, do let me know so I can add them to this page.
