Christopher Young

Director, Jacobs Organ Academy

Summer 2020, July 20 - 25


 Welcome from the Course Director!

Welcome to the Jacobs School of Music Organ Academy website! This academy is designed for inquisitive and motivated pre-college and collegiate organists and/or keyboardists who seek a week of engagement with artist faculty, the stimulation of encountering new ideas, opportunities to perform on outstanding instruments, and the camaraderie of others interested in the King of Instruments. Our modest tuition includes daily lessons, classes, practice room privileges, exposure to the university’s vast library holdings and instrumental collections, including harpsichords and two university carillons.

There will be one track for Pre-College students, (age 13-17) and another for College age, (18+).

A dedicated and welcoming faculty, inspiring concert halls with organs of international renown, and a beautiful campus combine to make this academy a unique experience that will have lasting value for developing organists. Please consider how the Jacobs Academy might aid YOUR development and join us in Bloomington this-coming July!
