Music teacher of Los Angeles and was a native of Illinois. He inherited his taste for music from his father, who was a singer but made no pretentions to musical culture. From early childhood, Signor Modini exhibited great fondness for music, and all the friends and acquaintances of the family advised his parents to give him a musical education. Accordingly, while very young, he commenced the study of music in New York: but in order to complete his course he went to Italy and pursued his studies under Lamperti, the most noted vocal teacher of the nineteenth century. He afterward sang at various points in Italy, France, the islands of Java and Ceylon, Egypt, India and Australia, making a tour of the world. Returning to America, he stopped in New York City; but the severity of the climate so affected his voice that he came and settled in Los Angeles, where he was a leading singer and teacher of music.
