Quotes I recently purchased a new guitar that looked great out of the box but didn't play well. Peter picked up the guitar and swiftly returned it a different instrument, I am delighted with the excellent set-up he gave it. Quotes

Quotes I had electric guitar lessons with Pete for about three years and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed and learnt a lot from every one of them. Pete is a great teacher, with a wide knowledge of the various styles of guitar playing/music theory, but he's also really friendly and easy to get along with. Under his tuition I achieved a distinction in grade 7 electric guitar, for which I'm really grateful, as I'd never got a distinction in any music grade previously. Thanks Pete for all your support!

Quotes As our big day approached, one of my tasks set by my wife to be was to organise the music / entertainment. As anyone knows who has organised their own wedding there is a million and one things to remember and do. However after speaking with Pete and asking if the songs we required were possible, I immediately felt at easy. Pete is a fantastic musician, and has an incredible repertoire. Many of our friends who are professional musicians commented on how Pete?s playing added to the occasion. Having Pete play at our wedding made one of my tasks a doddle, he took care of everything. We can?t thank Pete enough. Matt & Mel Shendish Manor May 2012 Quotes

Quotes Peter Gates is a connoisseur of every aspect of the guitar; his playing, from funk to metal and latin to classical, is flawless and possesses the highest knowledge of every element of the guitar - it's physical construction, musical theory, maintaining the life of guitars and amplifiers, and even leading up to how to be found in the music industry. I had 5 highly enjoyable years of guitar lessons - his relaxed attitude allows students to feel like they should - having fun, and not pressurised. Aged 11, I began guitar lessons with Peter via my school. I had no experience with guitars prior. Currently at the age of 16, I have taken my Grade 8 (passed with distinction). Furthermore, his flexibility with instruments illustrates his diversity; after 9 months from scratch, I took my Bass Grade 6 exam and passed with merit. I feel Peter's playing/knowledge has influenced me to the highest level in every aspect of the guitar, and it is because of him that I am where I am today. Thank you Sir. Quotes

Quotes I have been having electric guitar lessons with Pete for 3 years (from the age of 13), and already am working towards my Grade 8, having had very little experience on the instrument previously. Pete has been a fantastic guitar teacher, not only helping me through the technical side of music but also keeping each lesson exciting with improvisation and studies on well known guitar solos. Thanks Pete! Quotes

Quotes I first approched Pete for music theory lessons and within half a year got 88 percent in the Grade 5 exam after starting from scratch. As well as this, he also prepared me for the Grade 8 guitar exam. I had taught myself for a couple of years but needed to get the grade 8 for university. He not only helped me get a high mark but also taught me to be a more well rounded player and how to approach different genres from jazz to funk and rock. I would recomend Pete to guitarists of any level, classical or rock and anyone wishing to learn music theory. Thanks Pete Quotes
