 Peter Fields has spent a lifetime creating music for the guitar - both solo and with many other instruments. His playing creates bridges from classical to Jazz to World Music to Pop and beyond.

With over 40 years of performing and teaching music professionally, I am able to provide the highest quality and most effective musical services around. I have performed across the US and in Europe and have received national airplay and distribution for many of my projects. My solo guitar repertoire covers classical, jazz, Latin jazz and popular standards as well as my own compositions. I have performed for literally thousands of private events and given concerts ranging from intimate house concerts to major halls and festivals. 

My teaching style is very creative and tailored to the personality and goals of each student. My classical training gives me exceptional knowledge of the mechanics of the instrument, while my experience performing many styles of music allows me to teach to each person's musical taste.
