The organ faculty is comprised of some of the profession's most well-respected pedagogues: Janette Fishell (BM '81, MM '82; professor and chair); Christopher Young (professor); Bruce Neswick (associate professor); and Colin Andrews (adjunct professor). David Kazimir, formerly of the C. B. Fisk Organ Company, joined the department as curator of organs and carillons in 2010, along with the status of Lecturer in Music. Tom Wood (BM '66, MM '68), retired founder of Goulding and Wood Organ Company, Indianapolis, was named Curator Emeritus in 2010. Each faculty member brings a wealth of experience as a concert artist, church musician, pedagogue, and collaborative musician.
The faculty take seriously their roles as mentors and teachers of future generations of musicians. As such, all undergraduate and graduate-level courses in the department are taught by the faculty and occasionally assisted by graduate-level associate instructors. The faculty post regular office hours and generally have an "open door" policy to be available to students outside the teaching studio or classroom.
