Organ Instruction

Mar 2006

For me organ instruction from Mary Monroe was the best class I've ever taken at Columbia. Mary has an amazing insight in the personalities of her students, so contrary to many other music teachers, she really, really knows what to do to inspire you and turn you into some kind of organist before you know it. Yes, she definitely expects you to practice, but frankly I love doing it, as it's always clear what the purpose of an exercise is and you get results quickly. In comparison to some serious conservatory professors, Mary is really an outstanding pedagogue.
