Mr. Fröhlich,

the organ-builder

„Mr. Fröhlich, the organ builder“ - an educational organ concert program teaching the organ to children from 5 years up

Whoops! There is a big group of children and an organist playing the church organ? What has happened to Mr. Fröhlich now? He was actually called to look at all the tiny and big pipes of the church organ. Oh well: Let's introduce the „Queen of the instruments“ to the kids!

The concept of

„Mr. Fröhlich, the organ-builder“

The educational organ concert program „Mr. Fröhlich, the organ-builder“ teaches children from 5 years onwards and families about the organ instrument in a playful, interactive and holistic manner. Mr. Fröhlich, the slightly scatter-brained organ builder in a blue overall (played by Friedhelm Bruns) is looking at the organ together with the children. He teaches them why there are „so many pianos“ (the manuals), why the organists couldn’t fly with so many buttons (the organ stops) and why the „Queen of the instruments“ has got a motor like a car.

Together with the congregation organist the children listen to a varied program of high-quality organ music. The pieces are chosen beforehand. Specific information about the organ (e.g. history, construction history, special organ stops, architecture, etc.) can be integrated into the concept.

The length of the concert varies individually between 30 (min.) and 60 minutes (max.).


Upon request, I could offer you some further material for lessons. In the past, teachers have used these materials to successfully develop complete units around Mr. Fröhlich, the organ builder.
