Welcome to the Safe Zone

The Jam Camp is a ‘Safe Guitar’ environment! We are supportive of all, no matter what level you may be at. Guitar Breaks is all about helping you feel comfortable so that everyone brings something positive to the workshop.

​The Jam Camp focuses on a couple of classic artists, learning two key songs and jamming them with live bass guitar, drums and vocals to accompany you. You get the chance to play alongside other guitarists, receiving guidance and advice from Pete on how to generate those killer tones.

Pete’s Biography:

Pete started playing guitar for Alice Cooper in 1989 on Alice’s world tour.  A live DVD was recorded at the Birmingham NEC and released in 1990. Pete went on to do the European tour of Alice’s next album “Hey Stoopid”, also appearing alongside Alice in the movie “Wayne’s World”.

Pete then joined the rock band The Almighty, releasing 3 albums. The band toured extensively throughout the UK, Europe, North and South America, Australia and Japan. 

In 1997 Pete returned to Alice Cooper’s band to do several more tours. A live DVD from the “Brutal Planet” tour was recorded at Hammersmith Apollo, released in 2000.

In the summer of 2000 Pete played a string of summer festival dates with Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson’s solo band. In 2014 Pete played guitar in the Ray Davies/ Kinks musical “Sunny Afternoon”. 

Pete has been teaching guitar for many years and is a long time friend of the team at Guitar Breaks. We love him and we know you will too!
