About the main teacher
This year’s main teacher is Sydney Peterson, a college student studying instrumental music education at Martin Luther College in Minnesota. She joined the Rock of Ages community last year and is excited to return for a second summer.
She was born in Sioux Falls, S.D. Her passion for music began at a very young age with her mother serving as the church choir director and her grandmother as the church organist. She hopes to teach music someday in a Christian school because it gives her the opportunity to share what she loves the most. Read more
