About the SOA

The School Organists' Association exists to support organists and organ teachers in schools in the UK. We began in early 2020 just before lockdown - and as our members adapted to the challenges of teaching online, preparing virtual voluntaries and accompaniments, and taking remote choir practices, we have kept in touch and shared our ideas, experiences and support.

If this sounds like something you should be part of, join us - go to our Membership page.
