About Peter

I have over thirty years experience teaching music at all levels and I enjoy sharing knowledge and love of the art of musical expression.

Musicianship, expression and technical skills can be taught through a variety of music, styles and techniques ranging from classical, to popular on classical and electric guitar. My lessons aim to meet the individual needs of each student whilst developing strong foundations of playing technique, artistry and expression to produce confident and expressive communication.

I have a Doctor of Musical Arts from Yale University. I have taught music history and University and Conservatory level. I have also taught musicianship, theory and sight reading at all levels. As a guitar teacher, I have taught all styles and have worked successfully with beginner to professional level learners.

As a patient and enthusiastic teacher, I look forward to helping people develop the skills for learning a musical instrument.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
