Recognized as one of Hawaii's most versatile musicians, Jeff Peterson is at the heart of the Hawaiian music scene today. His passion for the guitar has allowed him to shine as a solo artist and has given him the opportunity to collaborate with a wide variety of artists from Hawaii, across the US, and abroad. His focus on Slack Key guitar, classical, and jazz music has allowed him to develop a unique and transcendent voice on the guitar while being deeply rooted in the traditions of his Hawaiian heritage.
Born on the Island of Maui, Jeff Peterson grew up on the slopes of Haleakala where he was introduced to the rich heritage of Hawaiian music by his father, a paniolo, or Hawaiian cowboy, on the Haleakala Ranch.
Jeff Peterson's Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar workshop will focus on slack key tunings, history and fingerstyle guitar for all playing levels. This is a hands-on workshop; bring your acoustic guitar.
"Jeff Peterson is one of the best guitar teachers on the planet. As both an incredible musician and a gifted teacher, he excels in the beautiful genre of the Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar. He is absolutely the perfect choice to help you expand your musical horizons."
—Keola Beamer, Slack Key Master
