About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I'm a full time professional teacher and musician with over 30 yrs experience. I've shared the stage with Paul Simon, Eddie Money, The Drifters and others and performed on countless recording sessions ranging from albums to commercials to movie soundtracks. Throughout my career, I've also taught many thousands of students. I've worked as a guitar teacher for many music schools and music stores, such as Focus II Guitar Centers, a major Long Island music retail chain. I know how to teach the guitar in the most efficient and enjoyable manor and how to inspire my students to succeed and achieve their musical goals. Some of my students have gone on to music schools, such as Berklee and Julliard. Others have performed at Carnegie Hall and The Grand Ole Opry, in Nashville. And, many others have developed a lifelong skill that has given them hours of enjoyment and relaxation, as well as the perfect way to express themselves artistically.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love seeing students improve and I love teaching them the skills they need to continue their advancement for the rest of their lives. When students develop things like ear training, knowledge of music theory, reading and mechanics on the guitar, there's no limit in how far they can go with the instrument, in any style they choose. Taking a student from square one to the point where they can perform some of the songs they enjoy always gives me (and them!) a great sense of accomplishment. Having a student master a song and play it intuitively and expressively is, in the words of the great guitarist, Tommy Emmanuel, "A moment to live for!".

    I started taking guitar lessons with Peter about four years ago when I was a complete novice. I feel my skills in and love for guitar playing and music have advanced well beyond my initial expectations. Although my interest is focused on rock and roll lead guitar, Peter's comprehensive skills and knowledge in a wide range of styles (from classical and jazz to disco and heavy metal, and everything in between) helps him deliver additional value in every lesson. His formal education in music and music theory, real life stage and studio experience, and in depth knowledge of audio mixing, recording and synthesizing allows him to provide a comprehensive learning experience. From a personal standpoint, Peter is patient, reliable, intelligent, interesting and engaging. Every lesson is fun and I always look forward to the next one.

    I "found" Peter when I heard a young man playing at a school event and inquired who his guitar teacher was. What a "find" he was! My pre-teen daughter is thrilled with how much she has learned. Peter is an "uber" talented, patient, kind, supportive, and encouraging teacher who truly enjoys what he does. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn guitar, or improve their skills!

    Pete is an absolutely phenomenal player with the skill, patience, and professionalism unparalleled by other teachers. I took lessons from Pete for five years, and I continue to play for local bands as well as solo projects. I had recommended him to friend of mine who is continuing his studies and plays professionally. His encouragement and passion for his art is evident in his talent, and is reflected in his students' performance. I highly would recommend Pete to guitarists of any age and of any skill level.

    I've been with Pete for about a year and a half and I have a great time playing now. I learn what I want, when I want. My playing and confidence has increased tremendously. Not only that, I've gained a friend too.
