Hello, my name is Adam Peterson! I am the orchestra teacher at Washington Elementary and Lowell Elementary! This is my third year at Lowell and Washington, and before teaching here I taught orchestra, choir, and general music at Patterson Elementary for my first year of teaching.  

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.
