    Re the above post: After the family bought their home organ in 2008, Young Gert van Hoef learned to read music. Here what can result from bringing an electronic organ into a home - this is what Gert has achieved in 4 years ...2 1/2 years after the above video!

    Now Gert is a church organist, and has a job demonstrating organs for a digital organ company. Several of his recent videos are on digitals.

        It's good to see young organists keeping up the tradition. Too bad we couldn't see more.

              Wow! The Dutch Cameron Carpenter! (Without the sequins.) Nice to know that there are rising stars in other places.

                  There's been a lot of Gert on the Forum today. Not sure what I think of him, but his DVD looks interesting (the one with the super eclectic program).
                  As of 7/16/2013, no longer active on forum.
                  Practice hard, practice well.

                      Hi All
                      I have followed young Gert Van Hoef from his earliest videos, Starting with the Tocotta and fugue in D minor by J S and he truly is a remarkable talent...Plus he works hard!! An up and coming star in the organ world and a unique young talent!

                        I was just reading elsewhere on this site about the Longwood Gardens organ prize ($40,000), and the finals this weekend. Wouldn't Gert Van Hoef make a good candidate?!!!

                          I am 14 and play organ. The organist at my church said she was delighted to hear about the younger generation taking interest in organs.

                            Yes indeed! We need more kids like you.

                            I had a call from a community college the other day. They want to have their old Rodgers analog serviced because they are starting to get requests for organ instruction once again! Talk about a hopeful sign!

                              To me, people who don't play organ but do play piano are kind of lazy. Organ may be a hard instrument to play for most people, and I have not been playing it for very long, but it has never been hard for me. If you learn it, it will get easier and easier
