For a long time many of my students have been asking me if I could record a video teaching them how to play Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring by Bach on the organ. It took me some time and effort but it was worth doing it. I love this piece and play it very often. People love to hear it especially for weddings, communion and some other quiet occasions.
Anyhow, I hope you will find these instructions useful:
If you want to learn this piece in 10 days while working only 30 minutes a day, you can download my fully edited instructional 3-part arrangement of this composition from here. It comes with complete fingering, pedaling, articulation, tempo and registration suggestions and detailed step-by-step practice plan.
By the way, do you want to learn to play the King of Instruments - the pipe organ? If so, download my FREE video guide: "How to Master Any Organ Composition" in which I will show you my EXACT steps, techniques, and methods that I use to practice, learn and master any piece of organ music.
