"Peter is a good self-explainer. He puts a lot of emphasis in his playing and what he try's to say. He is very entertaining and understands the things we do. Peter is a very good, hyper-active teacher."

I believe that music is an indispensable part of life, and is something everyone should experience. Exploring the world of music through the cello has been one of the greatest gifts that has been given to me.
I find teaching to be one of the most fulfilling aspects of being a musician. Life is a continuous journey and we are always learning. To be a part of that process is a beautiful experience. I love finding new ways to transfer ideas to students, and witnessing that moment when things start to come together.
When teaching, I often find myself not only teaching music but also teaching students about themselves. How they can free themselves to reach artistic and technical freedom with their instrument.
