In the past, Pete taught violin/fiddle in his own home to students ranging in age 5 years to 85 years. He was well liked and found that most of his students practiced daily, and as he puts it, "If you don't want to practice, then you don't want to play"...
His goal is to reach out to everyone who wants to learn the finer art of violin and fiddle playing, where like himself, music is everything and certainly," music makes the world go round!"...
46 years of playing professionally in Orchestras, For Theatre, and on stage as a tribute act performer.
Pete has played from the age of 5 years old. He held first-class honours in Kiwanis Music Festivals early on and later went on to become the youngest member of The Peterborough Symphony Orchestra. He joined the Canadian forces in the mid 70's and played with The Canadian forces Central Band in Ottawa, Ontario. He performed at Government House for 4 Governors' General, HRH Queen Elizabeth II, Pope John Paul, American Presidents and other dignitaries throughout his musical career in the Forces. He later went on to learn the art of traditional Cape Breton fiddling, bluegrass and finally formed a country rock band called THE ROAD DOGS where he plays the music of Charlie Daniels and other great country artists.
