It’s Blog Sponsor Week! Meet Emily Ann Peterson

by Kimberly on April 21, 2011 · 0 comments

This week, I’d like to introduce you to the wonderful sponsors of the Music Therapy Maven. Today, meet Emily Ann Peterson, a professional cellist, cello teacher, and blogger in the Seattle area. You can find Emily at, where she puts the “Oh!” in “Cello!” Welcome Emily!

Emily Ann Peterson is a cellist from North Texas who transplanted to Seattle in 2008.  Her mission is to promote personal growth & instill character development to any age, ability, or audience by revealing an authentic, vulnerable, and disciplined approach to both teaching and performing.

In the very short time she’s been in Seattle, her repertoire of involvement in the Seattle music scene (both classical and non-traditional avenues) has grown at an exponential rate.  She is a Suzuki certified cello teacher with ~25 students, their ages ranging from 6-60+.  She volunteers for Whitman Middle School’s exploratory orchestra class by coaching 15+ beginner cellists.

In the non-traditional arena of music the following bands and artists have featured her in their recordings or performances: David Bazan, Grand Hallway, Graystar, Rosie Thomas, Shannon Stephens, Barcelona, Talitha Bullock, Star Anna, Damien Jurado, Jesse Sykes, and many more. Her classical repertoire of involvement includes membership in the Northwest Symphony Orchestra, a featured musician and collaborator for the Karin Stevens Dance Company, and a guest musician for the University of Washington’s Opera Department.

She regularly plays with her band, JUBILEE, a nonprofit abolitionist band whose motto is “Do what you love to undo what you hate.”
