They also collaborated with the Rose Consort of Viols and B’rock and completed a two-week residency at the Dartington International Summer School. Peter sang on a European Tour with Sting for his Dowland lute song project ‘Songs from the Laybrinth’. He has appeared with choirs such as The Cambridge Singers and Philharmonia Voices.
“Despite having no previous experience of singing, I started to study with Peter 13 years ago as a result of him being the musical director of our newly-formed work choir. Since then I have passed my grade 5 and grade 8, with distinction. It has been a wonderful journey. Lessons are always fun, but they also focus on new areas to for me to think about and improve. I also sing in the London Symphony Chorus and Peter has prepared me for many re-auditions for the chorus over the years. He is a fine, knowledgable and sympathetic teacher.”
Liz Reeve, Soprano, London Symphony Chorus

He was also for many years the Singing Teacher for UBS investment bank, where he taught private lessons and initiated solo song evenings.

“During my five years at school, Peter worked initially on my treble voice. After my voice broke, his enthusiasm and advice were very helpful in building up my confidence as a bass, while his knowledge of language and vocal technique were particularly useful in my vocal development.”
Charles Marshall, Bass Choral Scholar, Choir of Magdalen College, Oxford
