Teen Keyboardist Thrives on Big Sound of the Organ

Crawford Wiley, 17, made the jump from piano to organ three years ago after trying out the organ at his church. "I started to realize there is so much more you can do with the organ," he says. "The sound is so loud and the repertoire is so interesting." Crawford especially loves practicing at his church after hours, when no one else is around. He plays music from Hermann Schroeder's Little Prelude and Intermezzi.
