McKenzie Peterson's love of music started by plucking tunes out on the piano as a 5 year old and singing as loud as possible during church services. It developed into formal piano lessons, cello lessons, percussion in band, and self-teaching guitar and ukulele. She was often in a musical, choir, play, church production, or band event in her free time. She is constantly singing and making up songs with her kids, Mable & Henry - if only to get them into their car seats more easily!


Professionally, she started her musical and teaching career as a Children's and Worship Pastor. Developing children's music and teaching children the joy of music through singing and playful rhythmic gestures was always the highlight of her urban work with the nonprofit she co-founded and co-directed, The Des Moines Dream Center. Currently, McKenzie works part-time as a Vision Therapist primarily working with pediatric patients. 


Last summer, she and her kids were introduced to Music Together in a park and the rest, as they say, was history. McKenzie is beyond excited to share the joy of music through the Music Together research based model. She completed the Music Together Teacher Training and is dedicated to completing the Music Together Certification (a two year process). She so looks forward to singing and dancing with you!
