I am so impressed with these lessons! I never grow tired of revisiting old lessons and can’t wait each week for new lessons to be posted.  Peter responds to questions and lesson suggestions which is a great feature!

Bertram K. @ UK

I am a professional musician and I still find it invaluable to watch these lessons. Peter has the ability to focus on specific technique challenges and break them down.  Format is great and teaching style is perfect.

John T. @ USA

I have been a member for years and each lesson is as enlightening as the previous.  Getting insight into a professional player’s mind in regards to technique, practicing and accompaniment is very attractive!
