What is organ consulting?

One of the costliest acquisitions made by churches is the organ. Uniquely capable of leading large groups in song as well as contributing a variety of other music to worship, the organ is the largest and most complicated of all musical instruments. Churches dealing with organ issues benefit from having the insight of an experienced advisor, who can assist the church in determining its needs, provide educational resources, make presentations to committees and congregations, and provide fund-raising resources. The time required for an organ project is often five years or more. The project may also include sanctuary renovation and acoustical improvements.

Speak with organ committee chairs from churches large and small - of different religious denominations - about their experiences and whether the assistance of an organ consultant was valuable.
