Biography

Hello, my name is Adam Peterson. I am the new orchestra teacher at Washington Elementary and Lowell Elementary this year! Last year was my first year teaching, and I taught orchestra, choir, and general music at Patterson Elementary. 

I grew up in Tempe and Chandler, and went to schools in the Tempe Elementary District, and the Tempe Union High School District before going to college at Arizona State University. I graduated from Marcos de Niza High School in May 2012 and from ASU in May 2016. 

I started playing viola in my elementary school orchestra and singing in my elementary school choir in Fourth Grade. I have always loved music, and when I was in high school I realized that I would be interested in teaching music, so I decided to major in music education. I did internships at various different schools in the Tempe districts, and student taught with Jaime Johnson in the Mesa Public School District at Field Elementary and Wilson Elementary.
