Peter has lectured and given master classes at some of Europes most prestigious conservatoires and guitar festivals, been a jury member at international competitions as well as playing concerts both as a soloist and chamber musician.
His articles and compositions have been published in international guitar magazines and grade systems/guitar syllabus.
A hand injury in 2005 stopped Peter from playing, but in 2009 he returned to the stage to perform Paganini together with internationally acclaimed viola virtuoso Atar Arad.
In 2013 Peter - together with Grammy award winning artist David Russell and studio legend George "Jojje" Wadenius, among others - was invited to perform at the 10:th anniversary concert at the Uppsala International Guitar Festival. This year Peter performed the legendary minimalistic piece "In C" together with an ensemble featuring the composer Terry Riley himself , his son Gyan Riley , The Gothenburg Combo just to name a few.
Apart from teaching, Peters main focus is in composing and playing chamber music in various ensembles.
