I'm an intermediate piano player and beginner organist (and an advanced percussionist) and I'm looking for a good organ method, especially to help me add the pedalboard into my playing.

Any suggestion?

I heartily endorse Clarence Dickenson - the Art and Technique of Organ Playing.


it is a comprehensive book that could last for many years of study. If you diligently practice the pedal - that would be most helpful.

There are many method books with pedalling technique. Harold Gleason's book is good as well.. sometimes both are sold used on ebay. I just bought a Dickinson one for my student for 10 dollars, so they are 'out there' inexpensively.
accompanist/organist.. a non-MTNA teacher to a few

love and peace, Ă•un (apple in Estonian)

If your interested in playing classical or Churh Organ there are a couple of books I would recommend I would Start with Flor Peeters "Little Organ Book" and also a great resource is Harold Gleason's "Method of Organ Playing".
