Learn to play

Interested in learning to play the carillon? Check out this list of carillon instructors.


The purpose of the Guild examinations is to certify and acknowledge performance proficiency, including competency in musicianship and carillon technique. Two levels of examinations are offered:

  1. the Associate Carillonneur Examination, which evaluates a candidate's skills at an intermediate level utilizing carillon repertoire of moderate difficulty.
  2. the Carillonneur Examination, which tests a candidate's skills at a more advanced level and requires performance of more advanced carillon repertoire.


The GCNA holds webinars regularly throughout the year on various topics of interest to the carillon community. Webinars are advertised to the membership via the biweekly e-newsletter, and recordings of many past webinars are made available to members.


The GCNA holds an annual Congress in June, at a different location each year, lasting about four days. A Congress site will have at least one large carillon for recitals and may include one or more other carillons which are nearby. Congresses include educational opportunities including presentations and masterclasses, business meetings, recitals by invited artists, and formal and informal gatherings.
