Leaf shedding and curling can be due to Peach leaf curl disease which is caused by a fungus. Please refer to description of symptoms and pictures in the following publication to see if these match with your Peach tree problem

There are other factors that can cause leaf fall. For example, sunburn as described here http://www.ipm.ucdavis.edu/PMG/GARDEN/FRUIT/ENVIRON/cherrysunburn.html

Proper identification of plant problem is the key to effective management. So please don't hesitate to provide pictures of the damage and ask further questions if needed.
