As well as his main instrument the saxophone, Pete plays double bass. He originally took up the instrument with the aim of playing with a classical orchestra and he joined the double bass section of the excellent EMG Symphony Orchestra in 2013. Pete continued to play with the orchestra until 2016 and studied classical playing with several teachers including David Heyes and Yuri Goloubev. Since then he has concentrated on playing jazz bass and has gone on to gig with a number of excellent Southwest musicians including guitarists Kyle Norgate and Jesse Molins and multi-instrumentalist Marius Rudnick. Pete has also worked with cellist & pianist Peter Tamblyn at Calstock Arts and Ashburton Arts playing both double bass and saxophone on these gigs. Pete is a member of the house trio at Red Pendulum Jazz, a new jazz night at Exeter Phoenix to be held on the 3rd Wednesday each month from January 2019.
Pete presently has a new double bass under construction.
