Teaching Artist Statement
Peter Mundt’s ultimate goal is for his students to love singing and performing more than they did before they met him. He provides students with exciting musical experiences that challenge them in a safe and supportive environment. Mr. Mundt does not believe in auditions at the elementary level. The only requirements are a genuine desire to sing, and showing kindness and respect for everyone in the group! He also likes to occasionally add solos, acting or movement to enhance a song and make it more fun to perform!
Peter Mundt is a music educator with over 25 years of experience. He holds a Bachelor of Music from the Berklee College of Music, and a Master of Education from Lesley University. He currently teaches general music and chorus at the Cushing and Hatherly Elementary Schools in Scituate, MA. For 23 years Peter has taught music to middle school students for the Gates Drama Program in Scituate. He has also taught general music and chorus in Kingston, Bridgewater and Somerville at the middle and elementary levels. He joined SSC as Conductor of the SSC Youth Chorus in 2017, and looks forward to working with his students!
Peter is a guitarist, bassist and singer who has been performing in and around the Boston area since he moved to Massachusetts in 1985. He currently performs as a solo guitarist and singer, but has performed for decades as bassist and singer with Rico Barr and the Jumpin’ Jive Review and The Charlie Lewis Quartet. His years of performing have kept him in touch with his creative spirit and nurture his teaching. Peter has joined the SSC faculty in 2017 as Conductor of the SSC Youth Chorus in 2017.
