To meet the need for skilled and experienced organ teachers, especially in remote areas, the College is now offering a distance learning program. A student anywhere can study, both playing and theory, by means of current internet technology, such as Skype, Zoom or others. The student and teacher are connected via the internet, using a suitable device, such as iPad or laptop computer, so there is a link both visual and auditory. The teacher is thus able to observe and listen to a student’s playing, and offer comments and demonstrations.
This method will be useful for study for college exams at any level, from anywhere in the country, and covering both written material and playing. It is open to members and non-members alike (though we hope non-members who enjoy the learning experience will join the College!) Teacher fees and payment method are negotiated directly between student and teacher.
Please note that the RCCO Register of Teachers is an information only service. That is, except for College qualifications, the College does not perform background checks on teachers relating to child protection or vulnerable adult matters, or in any way verify other claims made in register listings, such as those regarding positions held and teaching experience. Potential students (and, if applicable, their legal guardians) are therefore urged to make their own appropriate checks and precautions, such as seeking references and/or booking a trial lesson. Note that several teachers have personal websites which you may wish to seek out for further information.
Below is a list of teachers who are available to provide online lessons. Interested students may contact the teachers directly to learn more about their qualifications, availability and fees. As will be seen from the list, the teachers are all well qualified, and offer a wide range of age and experience. Interested students of any age can begin by contacting by e-mail any teacher listed, and explore mutual goals and methods. Provision of the connecting device and software is entirely up to the student and teacher, as is the fee and payment arrangement for lessons
