He went to the Birmingham Royal Institute for the Blind which is where he was taught to read and write braille, and introduced to the piano. 

His ambition was to be a jazz pianist, and played at parties and in working-men's clubs in and around Birmingham.    

When Peter was at the Royal Normal College for the Blind, studying music, piano-tuning and typing, he underwent a spiritual crisis, and became a committed Christian.   This fact has influenced and controlled his life ever since. 

During a Gospel Mission in Guernsey in the Channel Islands, Peter met Margaret;  they married in 1962. 

They have three children, Tim, Chris and Beth. In 1982,  the family came to live in Ammanford, Wales, in order to share   responsibilities in Ammanford Evangelical Church.

Peter has travelled extensively, communicating the  "Good News" in churches, clubs, schools and prisons.   He also makes CD’s and videos   of his playing, and has written two books about his life -   "One day I'll see you", and “Heaven in sight”, as well as two songbooks and his latest book being an edited collection of stories and poems from the Internet – “Inspiration from the Internet”.
