About this pro

Why Study with me?

What makes studying music with Pete so special?

1. Personalized, patient learning environment

While beginner students learn out of my book, I still strive to cater my lessons to each student, combining a healthy mix of fundamentals and student interests.

2.  Performance opportunities, with real pro musicians

In lieu of traditional recitals, my students have the chance to perform in one of our Live Series concerts, hosted  at a real local venue, with special guest performers capping off the show.

3. Students can write, record, and release their own songs and music

Students interested in songwriting can use the in-house recording equipment to record their original music.

I absolutely love music, so I truly enjoy doing what I can to help other people enjoy it too!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

If the student hasn't ever taken any guitar lessons, I like to use my beginner guitar curriculum. It is a good mix of popular songs, technique, and music theory applied to guitar. Once a student has worked through the basic method, we can begin to work on their interests! Soloing, improvisation, technique, song writing, and learning tunes are all things I often work on with students! 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a Bachelors degree in jazz guitar from the University of Kansas, as well as an Associates degree in guitar performance from Musician's Institute

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My prices are as follows: 

In studio=$25 per lesson

In your home=$30 per lesson

Online (skype)=$15 per lesson

How did you get started teaching?

I first taught lessons to some friends in high school, and then picked up my first real student my senior year. After that, I taught at a local music school for 5 years, teaching group guitar, rock bands, and private lessons. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students of all ages, interests, and skill levels!
