Organ lessons in Didsbury

When the organ department at the Royal Northern College of Music was closed down in 2017, the teaching organs were sold.  Encouraged by organist Simon Leach and his wife Helen, director of music at St James' and Emmanuel Church, Didsbury, the Walker organ was bought by the Didsbury parish to replace a barely functioning instrument.

The organ is being made available for organ tuition, and Gordon Stewart is planning to use it regularly for teaching pupils of all standards. 

The organ will feature in the Manchester Organ Day on June 23, 2018.
