I decided to research “Who are the organists of the future?” following the publication of the Hubbard Report in January 2018, which stated just 4% of organists are under the age of 30. Initially I thought I might look at a project qualification through school, however the support I have received from the organ world has enabled it to become much more than that. With feedback from over 250 organists of all ages, many of whom provided additional supporting comments, several interviews conducted, further questions asked and much research carried out, it has become a project of passion (and too long for a school qualification!). The final title being, ‘Inspiring Organists of the Future; does more need to be done?’
To read the report, please just click on the title above and it will take you to a copy. I do hope you find my report, ideas and conclusions interesting. Thank you for taking the time to read it.
I’d value any feedback you may have.
