“Peter is amazing. I have known him for years and have always thought of him as one of the best. A great musician who also happens to be a great guitar player. With Peter I always hear the music first. His amazing touch on the instrument is always present whether on electric or acoustic. The level of precision and discipline he brings to his music is something that he makes seem easy, but is in fact one of the most difficult things a guitarist can be asked to do. He is absolutely masterful at it.”
Pat Metheny, San Diego Troubadour, 2019
Peter Sprague, a remarkable musician and guitarist, has earned admiration for his exceptional skills and musicality.

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, on October 11, 1955, Peter Sprague’s musical journey began at the age of twelve, inspired by his father’s passion for jazz. With a strong dedication to music, he took private lessons, played in high school bands, and formed his first group, The Minor Jazz Quartet. After studying at the Interlochen Arts Academy, Peter moved to Boston in 1976, where he studied with notable musicians, including Pat Metheny. Returning to San Diego in 1978, he formed the groundbreaking jazz ensemble, The Dance of the Universe Orchestra. Throughout his career, Peter recorded albums, collaborated with renowned artists, taught at various institutions, and contributed to projects with legendary labels like GRP Records, leaving an indelible mark on the world of jazz and guitar.
