His use of a special 'Phonetic' system to read music made the whole thing much easier.Thanks for the 'Ta fi ti fi 'system Pete,its great.

Amir

My wife and I tried a Bass guitar and a Sax provided by Pete.We went on to buy our own
instruments and we have lessons with Pete together at his studio.

J
Jess

He is the third sax teacher I tried. One of the best teachers I ever came across. His explanation of things is always slow,clear and precise.He has loads of patience. I have learnt the sax in only a few weeks already.I am happy to travel the extra distance for his lessons.
...and that phonetic system to read music is brill (Why was I not shown that at school?)

A
Alistair(Leighton,Crewe)

He travels to us in Crewe at very reasonable price and teaches Guitar to my son and then Sax to my Daughter.Excellent service.
