It’s dusk, and someone serenades the neighborhood with a Christmas carol tune. The air is enraptured with a heavy gladness. You close your eyes closely, absorb the melody, and cannot resist humming slowly to the tune. You raise your hands to nothing, relax your palm and slowly finger the air. Now it’s Beethoven leaking from your speaker in the living room. The joy is just so much to take in.
Your love for the Piano is palpable, full, sated, except that your hunger lingers.

Learning to play the organ is a beautiful pastime to take up as the lockdown intensifies the silent void. But you don’t have to pay exorbitant fees or go to a music school before you learn how to play the organ.
FAQs about our Online Organ Classes
There are several online resources and classes available to tutor you. What you only need is your flow of soulful passion, an affordable organ, and… Yes! You guessed right, our top online organ classes. Here’s a list of FAQs about learning via this medium and our online organ classes.
· Is it hard to learn to play the organ?
For beginners, the organ is one of the easiest musical instruments to play. It is not as difficult as most wind instruments like the trumpet or the string instrument like the cello. But there is more than meets the eye. An organ is like a hybrid between a piano and a woodwind instrument. What this means is that as you’re fingering the rows of percussive keys on the keyboard, you work your feet on the pedals at the bottom to manipulate the bass notes. It requires a high sense of coordination to play. And Lesson notes on the organ are scarce for the organ compared to the Piano and other instruments. Luckily for you, we’ve curated our online lessons to make learning easy.
· How do I play the organ?
The first step is to get a decent organ in a store. Having basic knowledge or skills in Piano playing is always an advantage as their notes are quite similar. One notable distinction about playing the Piano is that despite some similarities with the Piano, when you repeat a note, a proper rest must come after it. And this is because it has a more extended resonance compared to the Piano. It’s also essential to learn about the different types of pipes, flues, and reeds on the organ structure. All these require an expert to guide you through unless you may be frustrated.
· Where can I practice organs?
