I studied Harmony, Melody, Form, and Arrangement at Saddleback College and with Kirill Gliadkovsky. I have studied the Berklee School of Music curriculum in songwriting. I have extensive knowledge of many musical forms and their application, and have composed music in many genres, ranging from classical, to jazz, to pop, to ethnic, to acapella vocal arrangements. Whatever your compositional needs are, I can help tailor-make a program just for you!
About Peter D.

Whether piano, voice, songwriting/composition, music theory or music production, I bring all that I have learned and developed as a musician to the lesson in the interest of the student’s growth. Whether we work in classical, jazz, or pop, We focus on what will directly fit your individual goals. We can cover the full spectrum of technique, theory, ear training, sight-reading, and performance. What emerges over time is tailor-made program suited to your needs and goals. A little bit about my background: I have studied with over 12 music professors, both in the classroom and individually for 6 years at Saddleback Community College in Orange County. I’ve studied a number of styles while composing for and performing in various small ensembles, including:  world music, classical, pop, jazz, and musical theatre. I continue teach, produce and compose music for myself and other artists as well. I look forward to getting to know you!

Peter has a great rapport with our daughter and is "meeting" her where she is in her interests. She loves Lord of the Rings--they've started on music from Lord of the Rings!

My 10 year old son loves playing little riffs on the piano but really didn't want lessons for fear it would be too much like school. Peter has been awesome about tailoring the lessons so that my son can choose the Music he likes and move forward from his place of interest. Peter is a skilled and gifted pianist, and my son is totally inspired to keep playing and put in the work to improve.
