ETI Founder and Directors Many people have asked us, when and how did ETI start? That is a complex and lengthy story to tell, however I’ll tell you the short version of the ETI Story. Our story starts about 5 years ago when Pete Barter, ETI CEO and Founder was teaching drums in his studio in the backyard of his home. Pete thought to himself that teaching music this way undervalued what he did and went and joined a professional Music Studio where he could reach more students and teach in a professional environment. He tried two or three studios that provided him with many students, however he knew he could do better for his students. The studios that he worked at didn’t seem to provide the inspiration or focus on the quality of teaching that he thought the students deserve. There was something missing…. so Pete packed up his kit and said “If I can’t join a Music Education Studio that I’m really proud of, I will create one!” Around the same time Pete met his business partner, Michelle Holland, a corporate strategist, and he was studying Executive Leadership. This gave him the confidence and the know how to create something different that he’d been looking for. And that’s exactly what he did. In 2011 Pete started ETI Music and developed a unique and inspiring platform for any student to be involved in. Very soon, a steady stream of students came looking for inspiration in all areas of music education. It was then that Education Through Inspiration Pty Ltd was born.


Michelle and Pete now run Education Through Inspiration together and provide music education, performance coaching, corporate training, group music lessons, school holiday programs, to over 200 people each week in 6+ site across Adelaide and the suburbs. ETI's vision is to enable everyone who has a desire to be a musician, actor, stage performer, corporate star or speaker to cultivate their passion and find their purpose. We will continue to grow and develop more ways of engaging and inspiring people to be their best and follow their dreams.

Once upon a time many children, young and not so young, dreamt of learning to sing, to act, or to play an instrument. Every day they trudged along to boring and uninspiring music lessons and drama classes, and their parents were forced to continually remind them to practice before the next dull lesson. Until one day they found Education Through Inspiration and they discovered that learning music, drama and performing was exciting, fun and inspiring! ETI changed the face of music and performing arts education forever, and because of that the children felt inspired and wanted to go to their lessons, and because of that they learnt the love of learning and their parents saw the glow of happiness in their face. Until one day after experiencing the ETI difference, they found their purpose and passion and became an inspiration to others. -Michelle Holland
