www.mainly4strings.co.uk features the compositions, arrangements and transcriptions of Peter Martin (1956-2021).
Born in West Yorkshire he studied both violin and viola with Suzanne Rozsa and Nannie Jamieson at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, from which he graduated in 1978.
In 1986 he was appointed Head of Strings for a LEA music service in Greater Manchester.
In addition to over thirty years of teaching experience, Peter performed regularly throughout the North of England as a freelance violinist/violist.
He wrote and arranged a great deal of educational music, much of which has been published. His pieces regularly appear on the A.B.R.S.M string examinations syllabus.
Peter sadly passed away from a rapid, unexpected illness in September 2021.
At his request, Mainly4Strings is now a free resource with all scores available to download at no cost.
