Although many of the student technicians presently working at the AOI are pipe organ performance majors, a student need not be an organist to get involved! If you're interested at all in what happens behind all those stops, keys, and pistons, the best way to learn is to get your hands dirty! While many areas of pipe organ building require a knowledge of carpentry and engineering, many other areas require no prior experience.
Members of the community are also invited to participate in helping out at the shop! We have a number of dedicated volunteers who regularly spend several hours working alongside our students and professionals.
Finally, the American Organ Institute always welcomes donations to assist in funding current projects and sponsoring performances and scholarships. Your gift will be greatly appreciated!
If you're interested in volunteering at the shop, or helping out in any other capacity, please email the AOI at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call at: (405) 325-7829. A donation form can also be downloaded below.
