His second name stems from his ancestors, who emigrated 300 years ago from the town Bayreuth in the South of Germany, known for Bayreuther Festspiele, the festival of Richard Wagner’s music.
When Little Peter learned of German history, he decided to take the worldwide known German composers Bach, Mozart and Beethoven as role models and set a personal contribution and symbol of peace for the world.
At the age of 7 he started to learn the violin and performed as a youngster at the Mindener Stadtheater a violin concerto of Johann Sebastian Bach.

Erstes Improvisierendes Steichorchester (First Improvising String Orchestra), 20 violins, celli and double basses with new improvisational music concepts and compositions from him like “Liebesleid” and “Lustig”.

TheHeartIsMyCompass

Written By: Peter Bayreuther

The heart is my compass

The heart is my path

Life is good life is cool

Life is really wonderful

On and on I tra-a-ve-el

Singing even in the rain

On and on I tra-a-ve-el

Life is not in vain!

Steady steady steady I-I walk my-y talk

Ready ready ready I-I walk my-y talk

Times get rougher I get tougher

I follow my heart

Times get rougher I get tougher

Rule my heart!

Das Herz ist mein Kompass

Written By: Peter Bayreuther

Das Herz ist mein Kompass
Das Herz ist mein Weg

Das ist klar das ist wahr Leben ist wo wunderbar

Immer weiter immer weiter führt mein Lebensweg

Weiter weiter weiter gehe ich meinen Weg

Heiter heiter heiter gehe ich meinen Weg

Auch wenn die Gefühle toben leitet mich mein Herz

Auch wenn die Gefühle toben führt mein Herz
