Christopher C. Altamont, NY

About Christopher

Let me introduce myself! I have been playing the violin for about 20 years, and have always know that the violin is an extension of myself! I have an incredible passion for music, and would like to inspire all of my students to share that passion. I've been teaching violin lesson since my high school graduation and throughout my conservatory career. I've taught students as young as 5 as well as adult students looking to learn something new. I was a volunteer at the Hamilton Hill Center for the Arts and helped create the only opportunity for students in the community to learn the violin. I studied Violin Performance at the Longy School of Music of Bard College in Cambridge, MA and graduated in June of 2012. My former teachers include Michael Emery and Mark Lakirovich. *** Lesson ...

Peter M. Gansevoort, NY

About Peter

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. *** Lesson Details *** ...
