Pete fell in love with guitar at age 9 after seeing a high school jazz band concert, featuring a guitar (which actually turned out to be an electric bass…oops!).
Through adolescence Pete played in numerous rock and jazz bands, performing all over the Kansas City area.
He received his Associate’s degree in guitar performance from the famed GIT in Hollywood, CA, as well as a Bachelors degree in Jazz studies from the University of Kansas.
While he isn’t playing or teaching music, Pete enjoys spending time with his fiancee, Estarah, and their two cats: Pat and Tilda.
