Chris Welch, renowned music journalist, writes:
"Peter … compares favourably to Keith Emerson of ELP and Jon Lord of Deep Purple. One might even dare to suggest that in improvisational jazz terms he is a superior soloist; he is certainly more tasteful… One can imagine an audience of fellow organ players such as Brian Auger and Graham Bond staring nonplussed at stealing their thunder".
Alongside other projects I've been a private tutor on and off for many years. Some of this time was spent preparing younger pupils for their grade exams in piano and theory, some was teaching children and adults who were interested in pursuing other things (e.g. composition, harmony, improvising, 'rock' in its various forms).
My approach is tailored to the individual, towards helping them work on whatever it is they wish to do.
This may be starting at music, taking steps towards exams, or exploring music of their own.
Work can be done at the piano / synthesizer / organ.
Half-an-hour lessons are quite sufficient for younger children.
