About Me

Many thanks for visiting my website.  I have performed a wide variety of musical styles in my 40 years here in New York State's Capital District, from classical and easy listening to rock and jazz.  

I am a composer and arranger.  My most recent recording, Lights In The Distance, features both instrumental and vocal music and revisits original material I wrote between the seventies and nineties. My first CD, Closer To Home, an 11-song offering including both vocals and instrumentals in solo, duo and four-piece ensemble settings, continues to be popular.  Both recordings can be purchased on CDBaby, at various music stores in the Capital District, or by contacting me or attending one of my appearances.  You can hear samples of some of the tracks on each recording under the 'Listen Here!" tab.

I am working on two new recordings, the first being music I've written for church.   

I continue to perform, working in settings ranging from solo to multi-instrumental groups.  My upcoming appearances can be found on this website.  I encourage you to search me out!  Feel free to send me a note.  You can send me one through this site.

After five years, I'll be moving on from the band, Working Class; I do wish them the best of luck in the future.  It continues to be fun sitting in with my musician friends when the occasion comes about.  Stay tuned for new plans coming soon!

In addition, I am a co-music director at my church, the Burnt Hills United Methodist Church located in Burnt Hills, NY, leading the Chancel Choir and, also, a contemporary Christian music vocal group, Joyful Voices, sometimes accompanied by a small instrumental ensemble called Project Praise.  I also visit other area churches, providing music for worship.  I feel that church is  where I do my best work and something that I've been called to do.

I wish you good living with the treasures of family and friends and always keep music in your heart.

Pete
