Playing a new Rodgers or Roland Church Organ?
Welcome to our site and to the world of Roland All About Organ!
We suggest you might find our free users group useful and welcoming to newcomers here.
This book and the Playing the Church Organ series have been created in support of the current organs being sold. We’re pleased that many of the buyers are buying the Playing the Organ series who have older Rodgers organs and some, organs by other builders.
Why? Playing the Church Organ Series has two goals: To make you feel confident when playing the organ even if you have never played an organ before and are coming to it from a keyboard or piano. The other goal is to make the organ sound great from the first time you turn it on. We do this by careful choice of music (pedal;s optional) and classic organ registrations that fit the music.
We’re so sure that all of our books and music will be useful to you that they are all available with full, 100% guaranteed refunds if your are not satisfied in every way.
We are here to help - call or email and let us prove that to you.
You know the feeling, being confronted with a new organ or MIDI module today can be as frightening as having to learn to operate a microwave oven or a new computer. Frog Music’s always been aware of this and we’ve worked for 10 years, coming out with new books and music for each new organ and MIDI module that comes out of the Rodgers factory. We’ve worked to speed up the learning curve and get you to be confident and secure playing the Rodgers and Roland Organs. Look over our Playing the Church Organ pages and books.
Frog Music Press started more than 10 years ago with the goal of creating resources and support for organists who play Rodgers Organs. Initially we began composing music for solo organ and MIDI orchestra - the orchestra playing from the Rodgers PR-300 accompanying you, the organist, playing your solo parts live. The books include registrations for the Rodgers Organs.
Finding the registrations as popular as the music, we then began writing user’s guides to Rodgers organs and MIDI modules, books that went beyond owner’s manuals shipped with the organs by focusing on what the organs can do and providing music for you to play to learn and experience the possibilities of your Rodgers Organs.
About that time organist James Pressler was discovered creating MIDI files of baroque music on the internet and was quickly convinced to record the entire organ works of Bach in MIDI - so that you could buy the music and listen to Bach being played on your organ with registrations. The project went deeper than that as Pressler created teaching files of each work so that hands alone and pedals practice could be done with the organ playing the other parts - at tempos that you select. This became Bach By Immersion.
Requests for organ music with Rodgers organ registrations caused the development of music, especially hymn arrangements as well as alternate harmonizations and last verses, with Rodgers registrations.
Our Rodgers/Roland User’s Groups developed over the years and continue to be very popular with organists, technicians and also choir directors and pastors.
MIDI Modules continue to be popular as well both creating additional voices and adding pipe stops to organs and for recording and playing back your playing.
