After twenty years on the jazz voice faculty of the Manhattan School of Music (many as the chair of the jazz voice department), Peter was asked to join the faculty at the Berklee College of Music in Boston.. At Berklee Peter teaches songwriting, arranging and a performance class in repertoire of the Great American Songbook, besides ongoing private lessons. Last year Peter was also asked to be ‘artist in residence’ at Western Michigan University, working with the vocal students there on composition, performance, musicianship and interpretation. Peter is also regularly asked to give masterclasses and concerts at various schools around the world, and has conducted a number of All State Vocal Jazz groups. He is regularly in demand for workshops and masterclasses both domestically and internationally, in topics ranging from vocal technique and song interpretation to songwriting and arranging.
...Remarkable poetry, beauty, charm and depth to spare.
Enjoy staying together at this peaceful Italian estate in the heat of Perugia, with chef prepared meals, charming rooms, a pool, and the surrounding natural beauty. Workshop sessions, all meals, lodging and ground transportation from Perugia included.
Vocal Awareness & Discovery
A residential workshop w/ Peter in Perugia
Oct 31 - Nov 4, 2019
Vocalist, pianist, composer, arranger and mentor to many, Peter brings his well-traveled strengths and sensibilities to Perugia for three days of musical discovery and deeper vocal awareness. Classes in song interpretation and reinvention, the art of the performing duo (each participant and Peter accompanying/singing), as well as time spent on improving vocal technique, and listening sessions. During this intensive, Peter will work with each vocalist on a special arrangement to be performed in a closing Duos concert (songwriters welcome and encouraged!). It will be a time of open-heartedness and expression.
