Fostering a Lifelong Love of Music

Former Piano Student's Son Now Enrolled in CMC as a Toddler

Matthew Adamo was 4-years-old when he began taking piano lessons from his neighbor, Patti St. John. That was in 1976 when Sister Patricia was a freshman at The College of Saint Rose majoring in Music Education; little did she know then that her career would lead to early childhood music education! After completing a postdoctoral fellowship in Chicago, Adamo, a pediatric neurosurgeon at Albany Medical Center, moved back to the Capital Region and enrolled his 2-year-old son, Christian, at Carondelet Music Center for the Kindermusik toddler program. Meanwhile, dad still enjoys music-making, jamming with friends and colleagues. Matthew and his wife, Karen, are expecting their second child in June!
