Infinity Visual and Performing Arts welcomes two new instructors!
Adam McKillip: Mandolin Instructor – Adam McKillip, 26 year old Jamestown native, has over 14 years of music-related experience. His first string instrument, at age 11, was the mandolin which he studied under Bill Eckstrom until college. His interests in mandolin lead him to learn banjo, bass, guitar, and ukulele. Adam attended the JCC Fine Arts Music program for three years where he studied mandolin, guitar, piano, and alto saxophone. Adam has had the privilege of performing with many different bands throughout the Chautauqua region, with local musicians, with the Little Theatre production “Cash”, and pit orchestras for school musicals. Adam is also a former student of the Infinity program, where he studied under the direction of Bill Ward and was a part of the Infinity Bluegrass Project. He has been teaching for 6 years as a mandolin and guitar instructor. Adam is excited to be a part of the Infinity team and looks forward to sharing his passion of music with his students.
Ryan Lindfors: Drum Instructor- Ryan Lindfors was born and raised in Jamestown, NY. He attended JCC and SUNY Fredonia each for one year as a percussion performance major. Having started his musical endeavors at the young age of four with guitar lessons and joining vocal choirs, he found his true passion to be drums when his first kit was purchased for him by his parents for Christmas of 2007. He worked with local musicians and took private lessons all the way through high school until graduation. During his time in high school, he participated in Concert Band, Marching Band, A Cappella, Madrigals, Full Orchestra, NYSSMA, All County, All State, and much more. During the last half of 2015, Ryan was touring all of North America with the California based, internationally renowned metal act, Bermuda.
