Peter studied classical guitar with John McLaren and the late Walter Spaulding (University of Maine,) also participated in a master class given by Cuban virtuouso guitarist Rey de la Torre.
Eventually, Peter expanded the classical technique he had learned to the steel string acoustic giving him a method of staying creative by writing his own instrumental compositions. “I had heard the British band Pentangle as a teenager and the two guitarists, Bert Jansch & John Renbourn amazed me away with their fusion of medieval/renaissance and blues/jazz/ and traditional folk music”. Other important influences include John Fahey, Leo Kottke, Adrian Legg, Michael Hedges, Kenny Burrell, Pat Martino, Julian Bream, Ravi Shankar. He performs live throughout Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts, and has opened many shows for national acts.
