Have you ever wanted to start to practice on the organ but found yourself sidetracked after a few days? Apparently your inner motivation wasn't enough.

I know how you feel. I also was stuck many times. What helped me was to find some external motivation as well.

In order for you to advance your organ playing skills and help you motivate to practice, my wife Ausra - @laputis and I invite you to join in a contest to submit your organ music and win some Steem.

Are you an experienced organist? You can participate easily. Are you a beginner? No problem. This contest is open to every organ music loving Steemian.


  1. It's sort of open mic contest for organ music - no limitation to length, level of difficulty, genre etc.
  2. It can be any organ piece, any hymn, any improvisation or any organ exercise.
  3. It has to be performed by you without editing.
  4. Be sure to clearly state Secrets of Organ Playing Contest, the contest week number, your Steem name, and the random contest entry word of the week. This week's word is "Alarm".
  5. Upload your entry to YouTube.
  6. Make a post about your entry on Steem.
  7. Performance on pipe and electronic organs are valid.
  8. Use #secretsoforganplaying as your first tag.
  9. Upvote and Resteem this post on Steem.
  10. Comment this post on Steem with link to your entry so people can see and listen to it.
  11. The contest is open until Monday, February 25, 2019 12:00 PM UTC.


Every participating entry will receive our upvotes. Additionally, 3 winners will be rewarded some STEEM in the following manner:

1st Place: 10 STEEM

2nd Place: 6 STEEM

3rd Place: 4 STEEM


@laputis and I will serve as judges. We will pick winners based on what sounded the most interesting and best performed to us.

Our goal here is to support the community while motivating you to practice, inspiring to create some amazing music and adding more smiles to everyone's day.

Questions, comments, ideas? Please let us know your feedback about this contest.

Support our fellow contestants - upvote, resteem and comment their entry to let them know specifically what did you appreciate about their music.

Also stay tuned for the post about winners from Week 7!

If you would like to participate but don't have Steem account, let me know your desired username by contacting me on my blog and I will create an account for you very quickly.

​We hope to see even more entries next week!

And remember, when you practice, miracles happen!


This is lovely opportunity I have the mindset of playing organ but I have not tasted some before. I do not even have one, how can I join?

If Pinky and Spiky will build an organ and ship it to you, you will have an organ! 😀

Great competition. Organ music is always a pleasure to listen to.
I was at a concert in Salzburg once.
There's a huge organ and it was an unforgettable sight, @organduo

Maybe I was there with you too. Back in the summer of 2000. Fabulous place.

I was there a little later, in 2009 in September : -)
I really liked it!

Los organos suenan muy bien, mi mamá ha tocado organo y mi abuelo también. Yo estoy estudiando violin.

Violin is very nice!
