For 12 years, Pete taught Edinburgh Drum Soc (2003-2015), teaching west african djembe and dun dun traditional rhythms and breaks to beginners and in recent years an intermediate/improvers level class. Specialist modules in Afro -Cuban and Afro - Brazilian Drumming & Song were also delivered.

The society performed many times around Edinburgh for charity nights and has now evolved into the drum and dance troupe "Anansi". They are often seen performing vibrant gigs around Edinburgh for charity nights and more recently being booked for summer festivals and club nights across Scotland.
