Meet Your Teacher: What Music Means to Me

My name is Frank Peter, a middle-aged semi-pro musician and the sole proprietor of Piano-ology. I am in love with music. I have made it a big part of my life because it challenges and excites all the things that make me human. I do not consider myself to be “talented”. I don’t have perfect pitch. Technique did not come naturally to me. I have overcome severe problems with rhythm. My memory is so-so. I enjoy performing even though I still deal with performance anxiety. I’ve worked very hard to learn everything I know today, digging many dry wells along the way to mastery. I take immense pride in never giving up when things get tough. My gift is love of life, music, and people. I play, study, and teach music for love, growth, fraternity, and peace. Whether as a student, teacher, or performer, music has greatly enriched my life in countless ways and continues to be food for my body, mind, and spirit. It gives me great joy to share my love and knowledge of music with others so that they, too, can fall in love with it and realize their full potential... both in music and life in general.
