Peter Tkach received the Bachelor of Music degree from St. Olaf College, the Master of Music degree from Washington University, the Master of Arts in Religion degree from Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, and the Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Texas in Austin. In 1962 he received a Fulbright scholarship to study choral conducting and performance practice in Germany. For more than twenty years he directed choirs and taught in high schools and colleges, making instruments as an avocation. Several years ago he apprenticed in the art of instrument making with the Martin Ott Pipe Organ Company of St. Louis. He has been making early keyboard instruments for more than thirty years.

Andrea Tkach has taught English since 1961. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Washington University and her Master of Arts in Teaching degree from Webster University. In addition to teaching, she has always been a serious student of art and, since Peter began making instruments professionally, has studied soundboard and case decorating and painting techniques on early French, Flemish, and Italian instruments. Her work remains true to historic designs, materials and techniques while accommodating clients' preferences.
