From the early age of nine years old, Pete knew he wanted to make guitar his life. He started taking lessons and went on to earn a Guitar Performance degree from Musician’s Institute in Los Angeles. He then came home to Kansas to earn a Jazz Studies degree from the University of Kansas. Pete has been teaching for 12 years, working with students of all ages and musical interests. Pete’s approach puts the students' goals first. Students learn songs they like while still learning essential skills, techniques, and music theory.
