Violin Studio     private lessons with Peter Hughes

Private violin teacher Peter Hughes is adept at working with anyone—at any skill level—beginner through advanced. As a performer and teacher he gets to the heart of the music—whether pursuing the classical tradition, fiddle, folk or contemporary styles.

Peter offers precise, practical guidance to players of all ages and abilities. An experienced performer himself, he is able to help his students uncover the hidden treasures of the music they are working on. The creativity and imagination of each artist comes alive in the process.
