Pete Mills attends Pleasant Valley High School and is in his junior year.  He has been taking trumpet lessons from Steve Little here at West Music Quad Cities for six years.  Steve says "Pete works hard. He loves music".  Pete love jazz and lists his interests as "jazz, jazz, jazz, etc"! Pete's musical goals include playing in a big marching band and really great jazz band.  His advice to other musicians is to "use the internet to your advantage, listen to everything!"  Pete's favorite musicians are Al Hirt, Snarky Puppy, and Benny Carter.

At school, Pete is involved in with the National Honor Society, tennis, and plays with the SEIBA Honor Band and Honor Jazz Band.  Additionally, Pete participates in Boy Scouts. He also enjoys cheering on the Packers. 

Congratulations, Pete!
