As an educationalist, Pete was Head of East Leeds Music Centre for 3 years before becoming Assistant Musical Director of the Sellers International Youth Band in 2005.  He has also worked as Musical Director with Blaenavon Town, Tintwistle and Eagley Brass Bands.

·         Helping people to learn their music more quickly

·         Developing common learning tools for brass, pit and drums

·         Helping people to improve their self confidence and set themselves stretching musical targets

Here’s to a fun year!
