Hi Everyone! My name is Peter Emperador, but you can call me Pete. I am absolutely elated to be teaching at The REALM.

A brief history of Pete…I was born and raised in Sacramento, CA. I migrated to Los Angeles to attend college for Film and Television and was immediately sucked into the music scene, joined a band, wrote, produced, published and released a plethora of music. Along the way, I became a preschool teacher, a music instructor and a business owner.

As an early childhood educator, I have over 15 years of preschool instruction experience working with kids of all learning abilities.

Currently, I teach guitar, piano and drums to kids and adults of all ages – specializing in children with developmental disabilities.

Recently, I co-founded MAPS Social Skills Intervention Program which serves the special needs population offering an evidence based music and arts intervention for peer socialization.

Music has always been a passion of mine. Sharing my passion for music of all genres has been and continues to be a great tool for creating a joyful learning environment and a positive relationship with music and the arts… Except for the “practice your music” part. That part, we’ll have to play by ear.
