Biography & More Info


In 1998 Pete graduated with distinction from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music with a Bachelor of Music degree in Piano (majoring in Jazz Piano), and since then has been working as a musician performing with many of Australia's best musicians.

From 1998-2003 Pete undertook an intensive period of classical piano study at the Sydney School of Piano with master teacher Elizabeth Green, and can give students expert guidance on how to develop effortlessness and ease with their piano technique.

Piano Lessons for Children

I welcome young students from the age of 5 and up, and have had many years experience teaching tailored lessons to children that give students an excellent grounding in all aspects of piano including correct piano technique, note reading, ear training, music theory, improvisation and more. The most important aspect in teaching piano to children is to keep them engaged and interested in the lessons, and so I always structure the lessons to suit the needs and development of the student rather than having a one-size-fits-all approach.

Piano Lessons for Adults

Most of my adult students have very busy lives and so their piano lessons often need to be tailored in such a way that they can continue to develop their piano playing without having to spend hours and hours each day practising. I have had many years experience guiding adult students in developing their piano practise to fit in with all of their other committments, and in particular I have found that tailored practise videos (see below) help students develop much quicker, giving them 'hands-on' guidance with their home practise, particularly when learning new pieces.

Lesson videos for home practise

To help speed up the progress of my students I also offer the option of tailored lesson videos (see below for an example) for home practise. The video below is an example of a very slow basic version of the Beatles song 'Yesterday' I recorded for a student. You can see more lesson video examples at the video lessons page.
