Welcome to the Moores School of Music Organ Department! Our curriculum is designed to prepare students to be adaptable and successful as both solo and collaborative musicians. Intentionally a small and selective program, we’re able to offer nearly unlimited access to an eclectic collection of organs both on and off campus, weekly lessons that go well beyond the traditional hour-long format of most schools, and abundant performance opportunities. If you have specific questions about our program, or would like to be connected to current students to ask questions, don’t hesitate to e-mail or call! #GoCoogs

The University of Houston is home to five pipe organs, including the III/49 Beckerath organ housed in the Organ Hall. All pipe organs in the Moores School of Music and Fine Arts buildings are available to organ majors 24/7. Additional practice instruments include a continuo organ by Bennett & Giuttari and harpsichords by Willard Martin and John Phillips. Degree recitals are performed on instruments by Aeolian-Skinner, Fritts, Nichols & Simpson, and Pasi free of charge through agreements with local churches.
