Peter Morgan grew up in Pembrokeshire before studying percussion at Cardiff University. He then completed an M.Mus. in composition under Professor Anthony Powers and Dr. Richard Elfyn Jones. In 2000 the Society for the Promotion of New Music (SPNM) shortlisted one of his works and it was subsequently performed at Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival.
Peter balances his time between writing, teaching and performing and conducting both North Monmouthshire Senior Wind Band and Greater Gwent Intermediate Orchestra. He continues to perform regularly as a percussionist with a variety of orchestras and also writes and performs with two bands, The Afternoons and Life at the Pines.
