Organist Training Program

The Diocesan Organist Training Program was established to train future organists for the Diocese of Syracuse, as well as to offer refresher courses for pianists and organists who would like to enhance their organ or pedal skills.

  • There are 2 levels of certification, one for beginners, and one for more advanced organists.
  • Candidates for the Organist Training Program will need to demonstrate adequate keyboard skills, which are assessed by audition.

Tuition is $350 for each 14-week semester of instruction, and lessons are 1/2 - hour a piece. Tuition is payable by the student, their parents, a  patron, or by the student's parish.
