My journey with the guitar began 25 years ago and what a joy it has been! I play rock, celtic, and bluegrass guitar and especially appreciate finger style and classical guitar. Guitar is an integral part of almost all contemporary and popular music and it is a great instrument to bring the joy of playing music into your life! Rhythm is essential to my instruction and in just a few lessons students will be playing familiar songs and danceable rhythms.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am flexible in approach and gear lessons toward whatever the students goals may be. We can be up and running with chords and rhythms playing familiar tunes in just a couple of lessons. Also, I enjoy the integration of tablature and music notation into instruction if a student desires.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Den area with piano. Seating for parents. One cat. Parking available.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Normally I would request the student have their own instrument. Little else aside from instructional books would be necessary.

*** Specialties ***
classical guitar, celtic/irish guitar particularly rhythmic back-up

Peter is a great teacher!

I had only played guitar a small amount before beginning lessons with Peter. He is very professional, enthusiastic and friendly, and has taught me about many types of rhythmic guitar I didn't even know I wanted to learn when I walked in the door (because I wasn't listening closely enough to my favorite songs). Peter is very encouraging and has taught me various techniques for guitar using my favorite songs, which makes learning so much easier. He has also given me many tips and tricks that are applicable to any songs I might want to learn in the future. Peter is a great teacher and I highly recommend him!

Best Teacher Ever

Pete is a great teacher. Not only Bc he is very knowledgeable about guitars but his relationship he builds w the student. Makes the student feel comfortable, interested and most of all, confident. I don't know how your company got this teacher to be in your program Bc he needs to start up his own studio or maybe all your teachers are this good. He is amazing and my daughter is excited to get guitar lessons every week.
