Biography

Having started playing violin at the age of four and studied under Susan Taylor for the most part, Peter has spent most of his life learning the violin but has ended up studying chemistry at Bangor University. However it has been here where he has really developed as a player, continuing his studies with Rosie Skelton, he was delighted to be given the honour of performing the Mozart g-major violin concerto with the University Symphony Orchestra in 2008.

He took up viola six years ago and has performed regularly with the Bangor Baroque Soloists several times on both violin and later viola. He regularly performs with his internationally acclaimed string quartet “The Wessex String Quartet” which he founded and managed whilst still at school. Alongside classical music Peter has recorded with several mainstream artists and has appeared on national TV, and plays regularly on BBC national radio for many artists. Peter was brought up in Poole where he enjoys cycling to folk festivals and walking the Jurassic Coast in his spare time.

Peter plays on a original Voirin Bow made in Paris in the early 19th century maintained by Luthier Andrew Bellis and 1996 violin made for him by his grandmother built from Sycamore cut down from the family house and used as Seating at his Parents and families Weddings across three decades!
