Ken Rodgers teaches organKen Rodgers, M.A., teaches piano to students from beginning through advanced levels. Students study privately, receiving one-on-one instruction once per week. Ken is active as a collaborative pianist and church organist. Students who have attained proficiency in piano are encouraged to study organ. Ken teaches private organ lessons on the Andover pipe organ at Hesston Mennonite Church. Students who study organ discover the mechanics of the pipe organ and learn the technique involved in becoming a successful organist.

Hesston College has invested in high quality practice and performance instruments that are tuned and serviced regularly by certified technicians. Our practice rooms, located in Keim Center, are sound insulated and temperature-regulated. Piano lessons take place in a teaching studio in Keim Center, while performances are on the Steinway 9-foot concert grand piano on the stage of Hesston Mennonite Church. Organ students enjoy practicing, lessons and performances on the beautiful Andover Organ Opus 116 in the sanctuary of Hesston Mennonite Church.
