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 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.

Besides her love of music, she is also an outdoor enthusiast. She is delighted at the opportunity to come to Payson this summer and meet our community as she serves in the program.
