Whether you're a beginner, intermediate or advanced guitar player, Pete will take your playing to the next level with accelerated, hands-on study plans through in-person and online guitar lessons.


With a passion for music education, Pete loves getting to know each student and devises individual strategies to ensure students reach their specific guitar playing goals. 


Pete is an open minded, forward looking teacher who has run JAF Guitar School for the past 27 years and has developed a system that prevents students from becoming overwhelmed or uninterested. 



Pete believes that strong mentorship is the key to learning how to play any instrument. 

"You can learn a lot through self study, with video lessons and music schools, but the knowledge gained from 1-on-1 mentorship and an elite coach can take you to the next level. Don't leave your progress up to random circumstance and mediocre opportunity. Take full responsibility, seek mentorship from an elite coach."
