Experience the grandest musical instrument
PipeWorks aims to make lessons on pipe organs accessible for school children on the wonderful pipe organs located in the churches right next to their schools!
PipeWorks will culturally enrich your community by introducing students to the thrill and wonder of the pipe organ.
Teachers, parents and scientific research all support the fact that children benefit greatly at an academic and social level from musical education at an early age.
PipeWorks is a joint initiative of the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne and the Australian and New Zealand College of Organists in partnership with the Music Program of St Patrick’s Cathedral, Melbourne.
The Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne is blessed with an invaluable heritage of pipe organs, many located next to Catholic parish schools. PipeWorks aims to fully utilise these fascinating instruments as educational and musical assets for children.
PipeWorks also promotes wider educational opportunities for the broader community in an invaluable cultural endeavour.
The PipeWorks program was formally launched at St Patrick’s Cathedral, Melbourne on Thursday 24 May 2018. At the PipeWorks launch, young organists guided their peers through a captivating presentation exploring music, culture, heritage, technology, science, history and maths, including performances of some of the most famous organ music ever written.
Further enquiries about PipeWorks are welcome and can be directed to Dr Paul Taylor, the Director of Music of St Patrick's Cathedral, Melbourne, at email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone: 03-9926-5753 from Wednesday to Friday.
We look forward to hearing from you!
