Pipe Organ Construction and Restoration
Every student at the AOI spends time working in our fully-functioning pipe organ shop, giving them an informed perspective on the inner-workings of these incredible instruments.
We hold the construction and restoration of pipe organs in high regard at the American Organ Institute. We believe that instructing our students to understand the intricacies of these instruments makes them better musicians and serves as one of the best ways to transmit a similar standard of overall professionalism.
We also welcome interested members of the community to volunteer at the shop. While many areas of pipe organ building require a knowledge of carpentry and engineering, many other areas require no prior experience. We have a number of dedicated volunteers who regularly spend several hours working alongside our students and professionals.
