I hesitated to share my experience with you previously as I do not have credentials in the field of building nor restoring pipe organs. I am merely an organist.   Several years ago I was organist for a church with 18 ranks of pipes. The =   organ was in deplorable condition. A committee was appointed to explore = the costs of rebuilding or replacing the organ. From its inception, the committee only made one report to the congregation during its six months = of activity. This was the first and only time parishioners were advised of = the extraordinary cost involved. As such, the project was soundly defeated = and talk of replaceing the organ with an electronic began circulating = throughout the congregation. No immediate action was taken.   As more of the organ began to fail, its demise prompted a renewal of the previous year's efforts - rebuild or replace. Another committee was = formed and as organist I requested that I serve as an ex-officio member ( I was = not a member of the parish). During the second round, my function was one of educating the parish on = the value of the organ they had, what a new one of exact proportion would = cost, why pipes were preferred, and also to prepare them for cost projections = and WHY it would cost so much, what the renovated organ would be worth in = actual value, and why they should give serious consideration to restoring their latent treasure.   Seventeen months after the first rebuild proposal failed, the church voted = to rebuild the organ and add five ranks at a figure considerably higher than = the original proposal which was voted down. The second time around, the congregaton was involved in the process throughout the procedure. They = were viewed in terms OTHER than just being the purse from which the costs would = be extracted.   I share this as a mere example to reinforce the wise advice Rick offers. = His comments are certainly worthy of adoption and practice.   Best wishes, Jim Pitts

From: "Karl Moyer" <kmoyer@marauder.millersville.edu> Date: Fri, 22 Feb 2002 12:58:30 -0500   Suzuki piano can begin at about age 4, just like Suzuki violin and cello. Otherwise, with a music-reading system perhaps another year or two should pass before beginning lessons. I began at age 5 with John Thompson's book _Teaching Little Fingers To Play_, and it seemed to work O.K. That was about 150 years ago -- :-) -- and I wonder if that book is even in print any more.   Karl E. Moyer Lancaster PA   > From: "Marika E.
