What Music Means to Me

My name is Frank Peter, a middle-aged semi-pro musician and the sole proprietor of Piano-ology. I am in love with music… and have made it a big part of my life because it challenges and excites all the things that make me feel fully alive.

I do not consider myself to be “talented”. I don’t have perfect pitch. Technique did not come naturally to me. I have overcome severe problems with rhythm. My memory is so-so. I enjoy performing even though I still deal with performance anxiety.  I’ve worked very hard to learn everything I know today and take immense pride in never giving up when things get tough

Whether as a student, teacher, or performer, music has greatly enriched my life in countless ways and continues to be food for my body, mind, and spirit.  And it gives me great joy to share my love and knowledge of music with others so that they, too, can fall in love with it and realize their full potential… not only as musicians, but as self-actualized human beings.

My gift is love of life, music, and people… and I play, study, and teach music for personal growth, fraternity, and peace.
