Peter Stephen Luthier: Maker of Stringed Instruments

Hello my name is Peter Stephen, I am a luthier, meaning I make stringed musical instruments. I've been a luthier for over 25 years and found it to be a journey of constant learning and developing skills. Instruments I build are based on a knowledge of observing and working on thousands of instruments. From this hands on knowledge I have developed my own style of building and designing instruments. I make a range of instruments from 12 string electric bass guitars, jumbo and flat top parlour guitars, Jazz Archtops, mandolins, double basses, ukulele's, classical Spanish guitars and many other instruments. If you're interested in having an instrument made, give me a call, we can discuss what you have in mind.

Guitar Made Easy

I'm an experienced guitar teacher having taught for 30 years and I've been playing guitar for 45 years. I'm also an experienced songwriter, music arranger and performer. I've developed a unique style of teaching that aids rapid learning. It includes numerous shortcuts and techniques to help pupils play with skill and play with dynamics, which takes their performing onto a completely new level. For adults, I specialise in teaching acoustic guitar and for children I teach acoustic and electric. Learn great songs, strumming, picking, lead guitar, excellent techniques and how to improvise.

Kind regards
