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.

About Peter

Pete fell in love with guitar at age 9, after seeing a high school jazz band concert featuring a guitar (which actually turned out to be an electric bass…oops!). Through adolescence Pete played in numerous rock and jazz bands, performing all over the Kansas City area. He received his Associate’s degree in guitar performance from the famed GIT in Hollywood, CA, as well as a Bachelor degree in Jazz studies from the University of Kansas. While he isn’t playing or teaching music, Pete enjoys spending time with his fiancee, Estarah, and their two cats: Pat and Tilda.
