About Peter

Peter Kristian Mose

Peter Kristian Mose

Peter Kristian Mose is an independent Toronto piano educator with a diversity of pursuits. He maintains a downtown piano studio in the Cabbagetown neighborhood, where he helps students of all ages and abilities enjoy and shape their own musical paths. He leads an annual summer retreat for adult amateur pianists at Williams College in New England, along with two American colleagues. He presents innovative listening workshops and lectures to help people “get inside” classical music, and occasional salon evenings featuring musicians in conversation about their lives.

Among his principal music teachers were Herman Spier in Chicago, Jeanne Kierman Fischer and Hendrik Broekman (harpsichord) in Vermont, Mildred Waldman in New York City, Ray McIntyre in Vienna, Austria, and Earle Moss in Toronto.

Mr. Mose holds a liberal arts music degree from Dartmouth College in New Hampshire (A.B. with distinction in music, minor in philosophy), piano performance and piano pedagogy diplomas from Canada’s Royal Conservatory of Music (double A.R.C.T., with pedagogy diploma awarded first-prize Gold Medal), and a graduate teaching degree from National Louis University in Chicago (M.Ed. in adult learning). In more recent years he has pursued extensive studies in Dalcroze Eurhythmics — the respected European system of experiential music learning through physical movement — notably with the late Canadian pianist/dancer Donald Himes in Toronto.

A native of Chicago, Illinois, Peter Mose immigrated to Canada in 1985. He is a reunited adoptee, and a strong and public advocate for open adoption records.
