Holy cow, Michael ... (can I call you St. Michael going forward?) ... everything I need should be in these links. I feel like you're due a consulting fee!
I think this thread ... and your posts in large part ... raise the bar on "helpfulness" for the forum.
I was moved by your story, learning where you work. When I bought my Technics organ (before I got my Rodgers) I called on an ad and was given an address. It turned out to be a music and arts school for at-risk students. The music department was going all-keyboard and no longer wanted the organ. I now own it - and in the process helped support the school just that little bit. I remember looking into the small windows of the classrooms as I walked down the hall and seeing some pretty rough looking students sitting there and what looked to me like teachers doing an inspired job.
For tonight and this weekend, I went back to my old box of music books (unopened for years now) and found some old beginner organ scores. Truly "book one" kind of stuff, but still with pedals. This weekend, I'm giving my self-esteem a boost by lowering the standard, making everything easy and then showing off the greats fruits of my labors to my wife and neighbors - ideally in just a few days.
I'm going to remember this week what it's like to keep everything in reach - to thoroughly finish something and know it properly.
Thank you again for the links. I'm on it.
