Private lessons are offered for Non Majors and Organ Majors in Music Education at Hinds Community College. Two organs are located on the Raymond campus – a pipe organ for daily practice, and an Allen electronic organ in Reeves Recital Hall.

Organ lessons are designed to develop students’ musical skills and musicianship through repertoire, technique, sight-reading and functional skills. Non Major organ students must be able to read and play bass and treble clefs simultaneously.

Organ Major lessons are for students pursuing organ as their major instrument. The primary emphasis is performance through the study of repertoire and technique. 

Organ Auditions

Students who wish to major in organ or take organ lessons should contact Alice Ballard to schedule an audition appointment. Please keep in mind that instructors may not be available for summer appointments. Please call when scheduling appointments outside the regular fall and spring semesters.
