Peter Grattan is a lifelong performer and educator who plays and teaches the drums, keyboards/piano, and guitar. Originally from New Zealand, Peter moved to the United States in 1992 and is now an American citizen based in Vienna, Virginia.

Peter's international career as a director/producer in music television for the BBC and TVNZ brought him into contact with many of the world's most illustrious musical acts. Since discovering the Beatles as a teen and falling in love with music, Peter has performed over 5000 professional gigs, both locally and all over the world. Today, he and his partner Robin enjoy working together as professional musicians. Peter regularly performs throughout the DMV area with his bands The Rockits and Amaretto.

In addition to teaching his students how to read music, Peter specializes in a unique 'play it by ear' method. This guarantees that the student can learn and appreciate harmony, melody, rhythm, chord use, transposition, and the structure of countless popular songs. From Bach to The Beatles, he is happy to teach any style of music that interests the student. Peter can travel to students' homes for lessons, and also has an extensive in-home studio equipped with a wide variety of instruments and resources. 

No matter your age, past experience, or skill level, Peter looks forward to helping you reach your musical goals!
