« I've gigged and been friends with Peter for a long time. He's punctual, reliable, and very knowledgeable about music and harmony. He is also patient, and I've learned a lot from him both in jam sessions and on the bandstand. Based on his patience, his kindness, and his standard of excellence, I would definitely recommend him to anybody as an mentor! »

Professional Jazz Guitarist offers personalized lessons for all ages and experience levels.

Methodology

My teaching method is tailored individually to each student but I draw upon many similar materials. My teaching philosophy is built upon:

1. Written Music Proficiency + Technical Exercise's
2. Aural Skills (such as transcribing)
3. Development of improvisational musical vocabulary
4. Tune Learning
5. Music Theory

No matter the genre or the student, with consistent and personalized instruction great strides can be made in their performance and confidence as musicians.

Background

I have been teaching students for the past 5 years on Jazz guitar, music theory, and beginning guitar. I have consistently taught 2-3 students through college. My students have learned how to learn for themselves and how to successfully self-diagnose areas for improvement. I am a recent graduate of Michigan State University's Jazz Studies program and have played with Michigan States Jazz Octet IV and Jazz Orchestra's I & II. Additionally, this summer I have played with the Joseph Herbst Sextet l creating a debut album. I look forward to learning with you!

I have known Peter for almost 6 years now, and I have never seen anything less than the very highest level of professionalism and musicianship from him. He is a brilliant guitarist, as well as being one of the nicest people that I have ever worked with. I highly, highly recommend his guitar instruction to anyone at any level.
