I provide professional, private music lessons with a personalized, individual approach. I have a patient, supportive attitude to help encourage a passion for learning music. I recieved my musical education at Berklee College of Music 1978-82, and by performing throughout New England playing jazz, blues, rock, country, classical and more for over 40 years. I have taught over 600 students over the last 30 years teaching children and adults in Southern NH. Many of my students have remained with me for years. I am the author of "The Piano Guide Book," a method for adult beginners, and "The Eye & Ear Book for Guitar," (currently out of print).
I enjoy playing music and seeing the joy in my students as they improve their abilities on their instrument. I especially like it when a student has that look on their faces of excitement when they first "get" how to do something or understand something!
I really enjoyed my lessons with Peter. He was very informative and made it easy to understand
I like his patience! It’s also great that he keeps me on track with my timing and suggests easier alternative ways to play difficult fingering positions on the guitar.
Peter is probably one of the most patient people I know. I'm 58 years old and get frustrated when I try to do something and It doesn't click. Peter has been very patient and helps me keep a positive attitude. He'll go over something as many times as I want until I get it. He's pushes me enough so I want to keep going. He's very encouraging and personal. He's a great teacher and you can tell he wants to share his talent with others. He's a treats you as a friend and not as a customer or business associate. I would and will recommend Peter to anyone who wants to learn how to play an instrument at any age.
First I find out what level the student is currently at, and what musical direction/style the student wants to learn. The first lesson gives the student an idea of my teaching style, and then they can be sure if the student and my teaching approach is a good fit.
