Default Re: Peter Erskine

I had the pleasure of studying with Peter when he was living in New York City in the 80's during Steps Ahead times..

He was my first "real" teacher, and he could not have been more of a gentleman, yet to the point, and helpful. My concept of timing playing in general, form Jazz, to Brazilian (which he play so beautifully) to grooves, comes from him

So inspiring..THANKS, Peter!! I am forever greatful for being with you in those "Modern Times" in NYC!
