THE REST OF THE STORY
Peter Markes (pronounced Marcus) is fast becoming known as OKC’s “Live-Looping Violinist,” using his violin to create pop hits from scratch live in front of audiences. Also the guitarist with the band, Kyle Dillingham & Horseshoe Road, Peter has performed throughout the world in over 30 countries.
As a career teacher, Peter was named the 2014 Oklahoma Teacher of the Year and served fifteen years as director of orchestras at Edmond North High School.
