Early on, Peter studied at the Tanglewood Institute, as well as the Eastman School of Music with Jeff Beal (House of Cards). He went on to attend Wesleyan University, where he studied under jazz legend Bill Barron and electronic music pioneer Alvin Lucier.

Since then, Peter has gone on to score more than a dozen features, including Tom McCarthy’s Win Win, Craig Gillespie’s 2017 Academy Award-winning I, Tonya, and the 2018 box-office hit Book Club, starring Jane Fonda and Diane Keaton.
