Hi! My name is Peter, and I'm a young musician living in Southside, Pittsburgh. I attended college at Georgetown University, where I majored in Mathematics and minored in Music. I spent 3 years working for the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, teaching all levels of mathematics up through Ordinary Differential Equations and Linear Algebra. My focus within music while at school was in Classical theory and composition, but I'm really into jazz, rock and roll, and the blues. I currently have a daytime job relating to mathematics, but in my spare time I write, record, and perform music as often as possible.

I've been a guitarist for about 11 years now, and mostly teach beginner to intermediate students. If you're just picking up the instrument, or have learned on and off for some time, then we would probably be a great match. I focus on teaching the basics of music as they relate to guitar, in order to establish good fundamentals and habits. I encourage students to write their own music while learning some of their favorite songs.

If you'd like to pursue guitar lessons or math tutoring with me, please contact me using the information provided. I look forward to hearing from you!
