RGT Registered Tutor
Peter has been teaching guitar, bass guitar and ukulele professionally since graduating from Leeds College of Music with a BA (Hons) in Jazz in 2008. Guitar Teacher Bushey, formerly Peter Elliot Music, was formed in 2015 when tutor Peter moved from Edgware, Middlesex to Bushey - establishing his second guitar school in the North West London / Hertfordshire area.
As well as tutoring jazz guitar, acoustic guitar, classicial guitar, bass guitar, electric guitar, rock guitar and ukulele privately in both Bushey Village, Hertfordshire WD23 and Edgware, Middlesex HA8, Peter also teaches at Parmiter's School; a highly oversubscribed academy with a music specialism based in Garston, North Watford and St Michael's School, also located in Garston, North Watford. As well as teaching beginners just for fun, where required Peter also leads students through acoustic guitar, classical guitar, electric guitar, rock guitar, bass guitar and ukulele exams with all the major examining bodies, as well as helping with preparation for GCSE and A Level Music performances.
As Parmiter's School is a member of the South West Herts Consortium, Peter is particularly well placed to tutor students for 11+ music aptitude tests. These tests are administered by several schools in Bushey and Watford, with similar tests being administered by schools such as Mill Hill County.
Peter and the team of Guitar Teacher Bushey tutors also continue to teach students in their homes in:
Bushey WD23, Bushey Heath WD23, Edgware HA8, Stanmore HA7, Elstree WD6, Pinner (HA5), Radlett WD7, Mill Hill NW7, Watford WD17 I WD18, Garston WD25, Bricket Wood AL2, Northwood HA6, Harrow HA1 / HA2 / HA3, Oxhey WD19 & Ruislip HA4.
Peter has also worked as a "one to one" guitar teacher for Hertfordshire Music Service (with whom he gained a Postgraduate Certificate of Music Technology at The University of Hertfordshire) and a beginner's group guitar and bass guitar tutor for Harrow Music Service. He has also taken a beginner's guitar group and a beginner's ukulele group for Grimsdell Pre-Preparatory School in Mill Hill. As a consequence of these diverse teaching experiences, Peter has had the opportunity to develop his teaching style - delivering engaging and enriching acoustic guitar, classical guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar, jazz guitar and ukulele lessons to all ages; one to one and in small groups, beginners to advanced. Recently, Peter has expanded his horizons, delivering group music technology and composition lessons for M:TECH at St Margaret’s School, Bushey.

Peter is able to draw from these experiences to offer students first hand insight and advice with their own jazz guitar, bass guitar, acoustic guitar, classical guitar, electric guitar and ukulele playing and/or rock, jazz, pop or funk bands. In the same way, all the Guitar Teacher Bushey tutors who provide home tuition are professional musicians with a passion for music and fantastic performance experience.
"Peter is an amazingly talented guitarist and such a genuinely nice person to work with. Brilliant technically, musically and an enthusiastic musician. Peter plays with confidence and skill - the best guitarist I know and one of the nicest people too."
