Pete received his bachelor of performance degree in classical guitar from Chapman University Conservatory of Music in 1993. During his classical training, he was a member of the highly acclaimed Chapman University Guitar Quartet, who released a CD and toured throughout the Western United States. He has performed classical guitar in master classes for world-renowned artists such as Manual Barrueco, Carlos Barbosa-Lima, and David Russel. Chapman University is known for its vocal program - which he took full advantage by studying voice with some of the top vocal teachers in North America. Upon graduating from Chapman, he moved to Los Angeles and began performing full time.
He recorded and released his well received first solo classical guitar album “Love’s Passion” in 2000. He release his debut Singer Songwriter album “Leave It All Behind” in 2008.
As a singer songwriter, Pete was influenced as a child by folk legends of the seventies, “his fathers music”. As a teenager his love for progressive rock inspired him to take the job as lead singer of his high school rock band “Vital Signs” (there were concert videos: plenty of embarrassing “Behind the Music” material).
“I enjoy the living I have carved out for myself as a working class Musician, DJ & Emcee, never taking one single job for granted. I feel truly blessed and take great pride in every wedding or corporate function I play. Over the years, many of my clients have become close friends and loyal fans. Meeting and working with so many different and diverse couples, families, planners and vendors helps make every performance experience special in its own unique way - I truly love my job!”
