Odessa school for violin and photography #general

Paul Gordon <flash@...>
 

My partner's grandfather >from Ariogala (near Kovno) studied photography
and violin in Odessa around 1903, give or take a year. He was probably
a late teenager at this point. I don't know anything about where he
studied or how long he was there.

My questions:

(1) How can I determine the name of the school he attended? Was there
a school in Odessa that specialized in areas like the ones he studied?

(2) How common was it for someone >from the Kovno area to study things
like violin and photography in a place as far away as Odessa? Was this
an option available only to the relatively wealthy?

Thanks for your help.

Hello To All researchers:

I have just recieved a death record on my great-great grandmother on
my fathers side. Her name was Celia/Cecelia STEINER. Her maiden name
was spitzer. She was married to Samuel Steiner. They were both born in
hungary about 1864 and came to new york about 1892-93. According to
the death record her parents were Joseph SPITZER & Theresa Klein.
Celia died in 4/29/1935 in the Bronx, New York. I have been unable to
track down the date of death of the husband Samuel. He was still
living at the time of the wife's passing. They had two kids, theresa
(Steiner)Harris (Died 1974) and Erwin (Died 1956). If anyone has any
information on these families please contact me, for I would love to
