McKell Petersen has had a love for music and theater since elementary school! McKell's roots lie in youth choirs, orchestra, and late nights writing songs with friends. McKell just graduated from Utah Valley University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theater. Over the past few years, McKell has spent time music directing for UVU's children summer camps, and working at elementary schools as a music director for musical productions! McKell has spent years teaching neighborhood kids piano, voice, and guitar. She's always participating in songwriting camps, acting workshops, and her own personal lessons so she's sharp for her students. She often performs in the community of Utah county, and enjoys performing as much as she does teaching. McKell is a hard worker and believes in working alongside her students to give them skills of trying something new, doing something hard, trusting in themselves and a teacher with their best interest, and most of all having fun!
