Pete holds a B.M. in Jazz Studies from New England Conservatory and a B.A. in Philosophy from Tufts University. He is pursuing a Master's in Arts Administration from Baruch College, NY. He says: “I am a professional saxophonist, composer, educator, and arts administrator. I believe deeply in the power of music to develop individuals and groups of people in profound ways, and I’ve experienced this myself as a musician, a teacher, and a director of music education programs. The role of the community music school - the joyful rigor that we bring to music education - is essential and often overlooked in broadening and deepening the role of music in our culture. The skills we teach, the traits we foster, and the memories we create make a profound and lasting impression on our students and their families, and they change their lives forever.”
