Welcome from the Course Director!

Welcome to the IU Jacobs Pre-College Organ Academy website! This academy is designed for the inquisitive and motivated pre-college organist or keyboardist, ages 13-17, who seeks a week of engagement with artist faculty, the stimulation of encountering new ideas, opportunities to perform on outstanding instruments, and the camaraderie of others interested in the King of Instruments. Our modest tuition includes daily lessons, classes, practice room privileges, exposure to the university’s vast library holdings and instrumental collections, including harpsichords and two university carillons.

A dedicated and welcoming faculty, inspiring concert halls with organs of international renown, and a beautiful campus combine to make this academy a unique experience that will have lasting value for developing organists. Please consider how the Jacobs Academy might aid YOUR development and join us in Bloomington this-coming July!
