People at Work: Guitar Teacher

Meet Peter King, guitar teacher.  I’ve known Peter about 25 years and he invited me to photograph some of his students while he was teaching guitar- electric, acoustic, jazz, finger picking blues, rock- you name it.

You might have seen his photo on the blog performing with the Fast Friends Band.

Peter holds a Master of Music degree in guitar performance from Duquesne University, performs locally and has released several CDs.

I’m sorry to not have sound to accompany this musical post. 

A note from Peter King:

To paraphrase the old Peace Corps ad, teaching guitar is the hardest job I’ve ever loved! The cool thing is — not only do my students learn, but they end up teaching the teacher new tricks as well. What’s more, we have big fun while we’re at it!

Here are some of Peter’s students in his music studio during their lessons.

 

 

 

 

 

My favorite shot at the end of the second session.  My friend Janice (Peter’s wife) made a cameo appearance/photo bomb.

If you live in the Greater Pittsburgh area and you have always wanted to play the guitar, or brush up on your skills and repertoire, go to Peter King Music website and click on the lessons tab for more information.
