Peter seems to have found the perfect balance between his three passions; music, teaching and the Church. Not satisfied with the many lives he has impacted throughout his 22 year teaching career, Peter also chooses to serve God by producing music for rural churches. Without access to live music, these communities and their worship are endlessly enriched by this precious gift.
Having spent a decade as the Head of Performing Arts at Penrith Anglican College, Peter knows how important it is to get kids involved in the arts at an early age. Now working part time at Blue Mountains Grammar School and as Norwest Christian College's Primary Music teacher, there is never a shortage of young minds to be opened to the power of music.
Like so many, Peter has strong memories of his own involvement with musicals and ensembles throughout his school life. “I remember watching my high school music and thinking how important it was that she really knew us not just as learners in the classroom but as people with our own interests and quirks,” he says. “I knew even then that I wanted to be like that.”
When he’s not making music, Peter loves spending time with his family, watching movies, reading, or trying to track down the perfect coffee. He also chooses to support Destiny Rescue – an organisation dedicated to rescuing children from slavery and enabling them to carve out a new destiny. He claims that one of his truest enjoyments in life is watching young people grow and flourish through their Faith.
