Searching Inward Serving Outward Through Christ, Asbury UMC
Asbury Organ Academy
|The academy is an educational program sponsored by Asbury United Methodist Church and supported with practice facilities at Ohio Wesleyan University’s Sanborn Hall in Delaware. Sally Casto, Asbury’s Director of Music, is the program director and the organ teacher.
Our goal is to teach young people about the organ and to help them prepare to be organists and pianists. They will learn solo literature, and they will learn to accompany singers.
Students will take 30 minute lessons at Asbury Church on Tuesday or Thursday afternoons. Organ practice times will be at Asbury on Monday afternoons or at Sanborn Hall on weekday afternoons or on Sundays. There are four practice organs available at Sanborn. In addition to weekly lessons, each term students will have the opportunity to hear guest organists play and describe why they enjoy the organ.
These lessons are offered in two terms lasting four months: Term I runs from October 1 through January 31. Term 2 runs from February 14 through June 15.
