Invigorate Your Hymn Playing (Newcastle)

Saturday 10th September 2022 (14:00 – 17:00)
All Saints Church, Gosforth, West Avenue, NE3 4ES

No matter what level of confidence or experience we have, we could all improve our hymn playing. All aspects of the art will be considered: incorporating pedals for the first time; devising a simple registration plan; rhythm and pulse; more advanced skills such as improvised extensions and word-painting.

The class will take place on the wonderful Harrison and Harrison organ at All Saints', Gosforth. The specification can be found here

Bring a hymn to play, or simply bring your questions!

William Dore will offer guidance for all levels, from pianists wanting help as they find themselves faced with an organ, to more experienced organists seeking to strengthen their playing.

This class is presented in collaboration with the Newcastle and District Society of Organists
