Peter Bray Peter Bray

I'm a musician from Essex who has been gigging and teaching for the last 5 years.

I first picked up guitar because a friend of mine was getting one and because I once saw Brian May play “We Will Rock You” on Saturday night television. Soon I was playing in bands and had my first performance in a pupil organised gig at my school playing in multiple band and my own solo spot.

I went on to study at Havering College where I got my HNC and BA (Hons) in Music Performance and Technology 2:1. The people i met there have long been friends and collaborators in projects since including some to this very day including playing for Mike Hough at the Indig02.

I currently teach guitar and bass from my home in Ingatestone, write and record music that I either gig or submit to music publishing companies for synchronization with T.V and Movies. My favourite music at the moment is any thing by Wayne Krantz, Screaming Headless Torsos, Bumblefoot and Dethklok.

I am available for guitar lessons and session work at the moment, if you are interested in either (or just want to ask me question) contact me by emailing [email protected]

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
