'I happily recommend Pete to any budding young player!'
My son Marcus started guitar lessons with Pete when he was 11. Marcus was already equipped with some basic guitar playing skills, but over the course of 3-4 years Pete took Marcus’ playing to the next level. My son is now a confident player and is starting to play solo performances in public. Pete’s enthusiasm, patience and technical skills have been great for Marcus’ development. I happily recommend Pete to any budding young player!

Pete began playing guitar at the early age of 3 years old in 1987. Influenced by his parents both being professional musicians, Pete learned the acoustic stylings of artists such as Heart, King Crimson and Joan Baez. His family formed a band in 1996 called 'Seraphina' and recorded 2 albums
By the age of 15 Pete had become influenced by artists such as Eric Clapton, Fleetwood Mac, Jimi Hendrix and Santana and was bought his first electric guitar. Feeling need to grow from his early folk roots, Pete formed his first rock band 'Pure Greed' playing a mix of classic rock and blues.
On finishing school Pete became a professional guitarist in a Ska Madness tribute band called ‘Ultimate Madness at the age of 17. The group had a busy schedule playing up to 7 nights a week all over England.
After 4 years of intense touring and a brief 6 month cover band residency in Wales, Pete was head-hunted during a showcase in Yorkshire by the Funk / Soul touring band 'Beat Street International' in 2005 who were impressed with his energy.
Pete was called upon to play a completely new style of music and became influenced by artists such as Prince, Chic' and Parliament / Funkadelic. Now as well as England, Pete began regularly touring overseas including Germany and Israel.
During his time playing in many top resident and touring bands in the 2000's, Pete had now trained his voice and began a solo career in Florida on cruise ships in 2009.
In 2010 Pete moved to Australia performing his solo show with self-written backing tracks. During this period, he also joined the Hip hop / Rock band 'Easy Tigers' and enjoyed an exciting tour of Western Australia also supporting Daryl Braithwaite on Broome. On returning from the tour, Pete was asked to join the soul band 'DD Soul' comprised of WAAPA students and began making regular appearances at The 'Ellington Jazz Club'. The group was also featured on the local TV program 'Turn it up!'
In 2014 Pete returned to England to write, record and produce an epic Medieval Orchestral Rock album with his family band called 'The Fludes – Ancient Tales.’ The album acquired a worldwide publishing deal from legendary producer ‘Mark S. Berry in Canada receiving global acclaim. From album Pete gained support from the music manufacturing companies ‘Rotosound’ and ‘Spear’ guitars.
On returning to Australia in 2015, Pete began work as a music facilitator and coordinator at ‘Catch Music' where he worked with the community connecting people through music. Using these new skills, Pete visited North Vietnam and developed a music program at a centre for children with disability in Ba Vi.
Since then, Pete has been enjoying teaching full time all over Perth and performing, writing and recording in his acoustic guitar and flute duo 'The Shaken World (see link in menu).
