OrganTutor Organ 101 is an online educational resource for classical and traditional sacred organ instruction. It is a course in basic organ playing for those with previous piano training, created by Dr. Don Cook of Brigham Young University.

As an on-call "teaching assistant," OrganTutor provides the kind of assistance for which online instruction is well suited, replacing lecture and demonstration. Like a multimedia textbook, it teaches the basics of organ registration, hymn playing, and other general concepts; and it demonstrates and describes manual and pedal techniques. This allows live instructors to do what they do best: hear and see the student play, then provide the kind of feedback and direction that only a human can offer.
