Folk adult camp
At eight, Peter finally connected with his private clarinet teacher, and continued five years of lessons, culminating in playing the Mozart clarinet concerto.
It was then that he was handed a saxophone in 8th grade band class and was introduced to the 12 bar blues progression and Elvis Presley.
He started with guitar, shifted to bass, moved to saxophone, and then quit music entirely before a return in 1993, a time when he also began writing songs.
An adept improviser and accompanist, he is sought after as a collaborator, sideman and session musician, with dozens of recording credits to date.
Peter spent three years in Malawi, Central Africa where he directed his school’s a capella group and jammed South African zulu jive with some of his students.
Whether you consider yourself the next Bob Dylan or you've never picked up a guitar in your life, participants of all skill levels are welcome, and instructors range from accomplished folk singer-songwriters like co-founders Kristin Andreassen and Laura Cortese to Louisiana cajun and swamp pop players The Revelers.
Now, if you’d still prefer to use your PTO on a trip to the shore, Miles of Music also offers two weekend sessions (one in Boston, the other in Brooklyn) in addition to the main event, a week-long workshop on a private woodland island on Lake Winnipesaukee.
Each has a wealth of performing and teaching experience and is eager to connect with students of all abilities by being open and accessible.
He loves playing music with Jay and Molly and Swingology…
A note about class levels: Ashokan classes are both practical and conceptual.
