Peter loves teaching, because it is an opportunity for him to learn while empowering someone at the same time.  Over the years, he has been fortunate to teach some very good students, who have won competitions and continued to pursue music professionally in conservatories like Eastman and Juilliard.

 

While that is very gratifying, Peter also enjoys running into former students who pursued different careers and finding out that they have kept music as a very rewarding part of their life.

 

Peter teaches privately and is also on the faculty at both Messiah College and the Levine School of Music. He has also given quite a few masterclasses in the US and abroad, both as a violinist and chamber musician.

 

In 2006, Peter co-founded a week-long summer chamber music program for young performers and composers, Chamber Music in Grantham.  For Peter, it has been very exciting to see many of the former participants come back year after year and develop more advanced skills and a deeper understanding of music. Last year, the program moved into the new state-of-the-art $30 million High Performing Arts Center on the campus of Messiah College.
