But when you are looking at the range of the instrument, which is very wide, you may want to consider the sound of the note that you select, Because of the harshness of some of the notes...

Okay, so what's the actual range you would WANT to write in? If it goes from the low C in bass, to however high you want to go on the treble part...wait, you DID answer for the PEDALS, right? I mean, how in the WORLD could a foot reach that far...it couldn't POSSIBLY go that high, since you're playing with your foot, could it? *confused*

Yo, piccy (sorry I had to say something weird), the stops on the organ, allow you to change the range of it, for instance on my churches organ, there are 2 sides of stops, two hand manuals, and then the foot pedals, anyway, with the stops, an 4th space E in treble clef (played on the manuals), could conceivably be a 7th Ledger space E (ya know the 7th space above the treble clef), and on the feet a 3rd line D in Bass Clef, could be a 6th ledger line B below bass clef... do you catch the drift of the organ a little better now? If not I'll try to explain more later...

Default organ

As a new player of organ you must memorize basic keys.
Organ players can change keys by a half step or a whole step using the finger sliding technique. Change the key of an organ chord using the music tips in this free organ lesson video from a church organist.
