Pete Sklaroff is one of the UK’s most sought after and respected guitarists and a highly experienced music educator/performer and online session guitarist. He has been a professional musician for over 30 years, touring and recording both in the UK and overseas.
My primary professional work is as an online session guitarist collaborating with musicians over the internet. This year alone I have recorded for clients based in the USA, Canada, Austria, Japan and also the UK where I am based.
From my home studio. I can record HQ session guitar tracks ranging from single rhythm parts through to complex multi-layered arrangements which are constructed to perfectly fit your musical vision. Stylistically I can cover genres ranging from Pop and Funk through to Jazz and Rock/Blues. There are many playing examples on the Video and Session Guitar pages within the site.
I have over 25 years experience as a music teacher at higher education level and now offer Skype Guitar Lessons. I specialise primarily in modern jazz guitar styles and improvisational language/harmonic techniques.
I am a former Head of Jazz Studies/Assistant Head of Music at Leeds Conservatoire (a higher education music conservatoire in the UK) and have studied jazz improvisation and harmony with Charlie Banacos and Garry Dial in the US amongst others.
If you are interested in Skype Guitar Lessons, please visit the dedicated page within the website for more information.
If you would be interested in learning other electric guitar styles (outside of Jazz) please do contact me as I also teach Rock/Blues styles.
I am the author of several instructional guitar books (all available on Amazon) and also regularly co-author with music publishers both in the UK and the US.
I have a long running association with the Fundamental Changes music publishing company in the UK and have contributed hundreds of audio examples for their publications, as well as transcribing and copying music scores.
I have also co-authored several instructional guitar books with the same publishing company.
If you require audio (guitar) examples recorded for a book project or professional music transcription/copying services, then please feel free to contact me via the Contact page.
Listed below are some short music samples drawn mostly from my work as a session guitar player. There are many more tracks available on my dedicated Online Session Guitarist page, covering a variety of popular guitar styles and musical genres. To play the tracks just click on the titles or the guitar photo.
I also now have a dedicated YouTube guitar channel. It features a wide variety of guitar performance videos (Jazz, Rock and Blues styles) and also some teaching clips. In addition, I occasionally make (no talking) demo videos of new and interesting guitar-related software that I have come across. Please do check out the playing clips below which are just a small sample from my YouTube channel. If you like what you see, please do consider subscribing to the channel so that you can be kept up to date with any new material I post there.
