My favorite aspect of music is creating my own compositions! I've spent over 25 years studying classical theory and composition as well as modern composition for TV, film and popular music. If you're new to composition, I can help you understand the fundamentals and approaches to writing your own music. If you have more experiencing writing your own music, I can help take you to the next level!

About Peter

I currently compose music for TV, film and other digital media in my own recording studio. Prior to that, I spent about 25 years playing guitar, piano, bass and drums in bands and as a studio musician. At school I studied classical music (theory and composition) as well as orchestration and computer

Peter has a wonderful, positive personality and is really easy to work with!

I just started my second year of guitar lessons with Peter and I’m learning so much! Peter is a great teacher who is patient, encouraging and a great listener. He can “hear” the areas that I need to work on, and is able to clearly communicate ways for me to improve . He has helped me get better at my rhythm, my strumming, tempo and even an introduction to music theory. I’m now playing (and singing) some of my favorite songs! Highly recommend!

Reading the detailed "About" section below should give an aspiring singer all the information relevant as to how and what I teach with regard to vocal performance and technique. Gospel singing requires an innate passion for the craft, and a deep-rooted belief in the content. We will help transmit that passion and belief into memorable, uplifting, soul-inspiring performances. To capsulize my mission statement as an instructor: You WILL be a better vocalist AND performer. THIS I GUARANTEE!!

About Glenn

I have been active in the entertainment industry since the age of 12, when I gave my first professional performance. Prior to that I was already being introduced to music with years of guitar, and then vocal instruction. I do not remember a time of my life when I was not singing somewhere; in the ho

Having taken language lessons throughout grade school and college, I found a fundamental flaw with the process: schools are simply teaching people to memorize words and phrases without giving students an understanding of the structure of the language or a practical usage it.

My method is simple yet effective: breakdown the language and teach you in a natural way that you would have learned had you grown up speaking it. I relate things back to your native tongue (English), so that you can understand how and where the languages diverged from one another and where they are similar, so that even when you don't know a word or phrase, you can make an educated guess when speaking conversationally. Within just a few hours, you'll have a basic understanding of the language and functional usage of it, and within just weeks, you'll be able to converse with native speakers.

The most important thing when learning a language is learning verb conjugations. You know the verbs, you know the ...

I am a fluent Spanish speaker. I have grown up speaking both Spanish and English so I am more than qualified to translate. With me, I will have patience if you are struggling and will push you past your limits if you want a challenge. You let me know how much you want to learn, what your skill level is, and your goals for the language. Together we will succeed.
