Learn to Play

Does the idea of making music out of 20 tons of bronze intrigue you?  Then consider joining the carillon student studio!  Taught by University Carillonneur, Lisa Lonie, lessons are offered free every Sunday after the 1:00 p.m. recital (except during Ph.D. exams). 

Prior keyboard experience is a plus!  Students should be able to read key signatures up to three flats and three sharps, and climb stairs.

The carillon is played from a console or clavier. Hands/fists operate batons while feet play pedals. Coordination is very similar to that of an organist.
