Peter Stewart lectures at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the Aberdeen City Music School and has previously taught at Aberdeen College of Music and Performing Arts.
Peter performed for 16 years with Irish guitarist Tracey Boyd; they were endorsed as Savarez Artists and were highly praised by respected critics for their musically sensitive, emotive and stylish performances. The duo performed throughout the UK and Europe and broadcast for BBC Radio Scotland. Many works were dedicated to them; most notably a series of works composed by John W. Duarte and published by Mel Bay USA. During that period, Peter directed the Glasgow Classical Guitar Workshop and the very successful Oatridge International Guitar Festival.
Peter’s success as a composer has been met with international critical acclaim and his music has been performed as far afield as the USA, South America and Russia. Many of his works have been commercially recorded by international artists including Alfonso Montes (Venezuela), Irina Kircher (Germany), Antonio De Innocentis (Italy) Matthew McAllister (UK) and Professor Allan Neave (UK); he is published by Guitar Score Publications (Scotland), Ricordi (England) and Chanterelle (Germany).
Peter is also an adjudicator for Live Music Now – Wales, the Fife Music Festival and the Rago International Competition at the Stuttgart Musikschule, Germany.
