Born 1969 in Essen, Germany Peter first studied modern oboe with Pierre W. Feit, Klaus Becker and Christian Schneider. Influenced by the latter he discovered historical oboes and after his graduate recital he started extensive studies in baroque and classical oboes with Martin Stadler in Bremen and Ku Ebbinge in Den Haag.
He is now working in many orchestras of the early music scene in Europe.
Besides his work as an oboist, Peter also publishes unknown oboe music, arranges music for large wind ensembles and teaches chamber music courses.
In 2003 he contacted Bruce Haynes and started an online version of 'Music for Oboe'.
