About Me

The only instrument I play is the accordion. I am familiar with the standard (Stradella) bass system, and free bass instruments. I have worked alone for over 40 years with acoustic, and electronic/midi accordions. I play the Bass. Many accordionists do not, they play the right hand and hire a bass player.

I have performed in Canada, the US all up and down the East coast, as far West as the Mississippi River, England, Scotland, Wales, Costa Rica. NY City, Saratoga Springs, Lake George, Lake Placid, Montreal, and many others I can't remember. I love the accordion, so it is easy for me to play. When you succeed, I succeed and it is my hearts desire to promote this beautiful, and extremely versatile instrument, and you with it. It's fun. Let's go.

Charles O. Troy, NY

Subjects Taught

Music Performance, Music Theory, Organ, Piano, Singing

About Me

As a private music instructor, Charles O.brings decades of experience in the field, along with a forty-five-year concert career as a conductor, organist and pianist, and collaborative keyboardist. Initially training as a pianist, by age thirteen Charles O. was teaching that instrument professionally, also beginning a lifelong career in vocal instruction and coaching. During college studies at the Cleveland Institute of Music Charles O.  added organ and choral directing to his areas of specialization, and even forty years later remains an active church music professional, presently serving the Old First and First Baptist congregations of Bennington, Vermont.
The many students of Charles O. have ranged from beginners to working professionals, their ages running a gamut from elementary school-age through retired seniors, their personal goals ranging from more modest levels of personal fulfillment to the highest aspirations. Accordingly, Charles O. customizes programs of study to meet mutually-determined objectives, his methods derived primarily from identifying and seeking to capitalize upon the individual student’s innate strengths.
While the majority of students of Charles O. pursue personal goals of maximizing satisfaction from avocational activities, he has also helped a number pursue more public agendas, guiding young pianists to top awards in adjudication and concerto competitions, and youthful organists to receiving college scholarships and rewarding church positions. Vocally, while directing English-style concert choirs in Michigan during the 1980’s and 90’s, two of Charles O's boy soloists won first prizes in England’s prestigious Elgar Festival, with other young singers appearing in University of Michigan concert and opera productions (including the premiere of William Bolcom’s Songs of Innocence and Experience).
Charles O's credentials as a concert artist include international touring as a choral conductor during the 1980’s and ‘90’s, with his choirs attaining top-tier status in America and overseas, while winning five gold medals in national competitions. In the role of a collaborative pianist, Charles O's concert career began at age twelve; in recent years, solo recitals have included both piano and organ works, as has music for church services. A recital series during the first decade of the present century, Bach and Beyond, yielded three CD recordings, one of which was hailed by the prominent professional journal The American Organist for Charles O's “ poetry and passion”.
