Peter loves teaching! Next to playing concerts it is his second passion. He started to teach at a young age of 15. Since then he uses any possibility to pass on his knowledge to the next generations.


Since the age of 14 Peter composes in different styles. Some if his compositions you can hear on this website. Hope you enjoy!

About Peter’s teaching method:


Peter started to teach already at a young age of 15 private and at music schools. He always had the inner urge to pass on his knowledge to the next generations. He teaches / taught one-to-one lessons, group lessons, choir, small to large ensembles and orchestras. 
Over the years Peter developed an unique and modern teaching method, which integrates the best and most up to date pedagogical and didactical concepts. Next to the five pillars of Peter’s teaching method, the main focus is always on how to learn something fast, how to solve problems, thus how to get from A to B in the most efficient way. Peter integrates all the precious concepts he learned over the years in one-to-one lessons from some of the finest musicians and teachers world wide, such as John Clayton, Jay Anderson, Garry Dial, Matt Garrison, Dominique di Piazza, Hermeto Pascoal, Dave Liebman, Phil Markowitz, Walter Lang, Karsten Gorzel, Decebal Badila, Arnold Dooyeweerd and many more. 
With every single student Peter works out together an individual schedule of what to practice and most importantly HOW to solve problems as fast as possible in order to achieve their musical dreams, thus keep the motivation and fun in music.
