About Peter

Hello, my name is Peter! I have been teaching violin/fiddle for 8 years. I started teaching at the Blue Ridge Pickin' Parlor in Granada Hills, CA. The music store specialized in folk music styles including country and bluegrass. I currently play violin in a modern americana band called Skin & Bones.

I love teaching students of all ages and see them progress to the fullest potential. I had one of the most amazing teachers in Middle School when I started in the String Orchestra program in Greensboro, North Carolina and I know how big a difference a positive and comfortable environment can help a student fall in love with Music. I strive to give this to all of my students.

College Senior in Music Studies, high-energy performing artist and music teacher with in-depth knowledge of music theory and creativity; well-trained in the classical, bluegrass and jazz genres, and beneficiary of numerous master classes and workshops by professionals including Michael Ferril (Hollywood Bowl Orchestra), Phil Salazar (Bob Weir and Ratdog), and Candy Girrard (Jerry Garcia Band).

I look forward to hearing from you and getting you started on your journey to learning music! Please contact me if you have any questions as I would be willing to give advice helping you get started.
