(back) Subject: Re: Easy Bach, Historical Fingering and Other Dilemmas From: "Bob Elms" <elmsr@albanyis.com.au> Date: Tue, 22 May 2001 20:50:43 +0800   Regarding requiring a good piano technique before learning organ, I used to be of that opinion till I mixed with the Free Reformed congregation in my city. Their organists all started on organ with no previous piano experience. I taught several of them, and the lack of piano technique does not appear to have been any disadvantage. I was surprised at first, having always been of the opposite opinion. I have just started a 12 year old girl on organ and she is doing fine too. If they have the talent and the dedication to practise they will do fine whether they have previously played piano or not. My opinion. That is not to say that starting on piano first does not stand them in very good stead. It is relatively easy for a good pianist to convert to organ. Bob Elms.   "Stephen F. P.

(back) Subject: The Severance Chamber (cross posted) From: "Mike Gettelman" <mike3247@earthlink.net> Date: Wed, 23 May 2001 00:04:28 -0400   On Thursday, May 31, I will have the honor and privilege to attend a performance of the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra and the Norton Memorial Organ in performance of Saint-Saens "Organ Symphony" and Jongen "Symphonie Concertante.   The unique aspect of this concert experience is I have been invited to attend from behind the facade, in the pipe chamber. Frankly, I get shiver chills just thinking about feeling the sound waves. To view the inner workings of the instrument during the dynamics of performance will be an awesome experience.   I invite you all to share this unique adventure with me. I am writing this preview as a kind of alert to anybody interested to offer any advice or suggestions on how to get the most out of from this learning experience. I will be taking pictures on my digital camera, and have already secured a host who will make the pictures available to everyone visiting his site.   All in all, this will be a wonderful experience for me because this will be my first time ever inside a pipe chamber, and I'm sure I will have much to report following the concert. I sincerely hope everyone has fun with this thread, and I welcome all your input as I plan for and experience the organic adventure of a lifetime. I am sharing this post with several of the organ lists to which I belong, so I apologize slightly for sucking up the bandwidth.   Have fun and be happy--I sure am   Mike Gettelman
