Led by renowned organist Paul Jacobs, Juilliard’s organ department enjoys an outstanding reputation, attracting talented young artists from around the world.

As an organ student at Juilliard, you will work closely with Mr. Jacobs and enjoy many opportunities for solo and ensemble performances. Juilliard organists perform in Alice Tully Hall, on its restored Kuhn organ (IV/87), and are featured in recitals at venues throughout New York City, and hold prominent church positions in the New York City area. Weekly performance classes attract a regular stream of interested visitors.

In addition to weekly lessons and master classes, organ majors take courses in service playing, organ literature, and improvisation. Students in advanced degree programs may have the opportunity to be teaching fellows.

Juilliard houses several pipe organs in various styles, including including those by Holtkamp (III/57), Schoenstein (III/12), Flentrop (II/17), and Noack (II/3).
