YOU CAN HELP to introduce more children to the pipe organ! Arrange a showing of the animation at a pipe organ venue, and tell the music teachers at you local infants/primary/junior school about "Dan and the Magic Musician" and the resources on this site, so that they can include a lesson about pipe organs in their teaching - you can print out a Teachers' Flyer from here to deliver to the school.
