Kaylee Peterson (Miss Kaylee)
Kaylee Peterson started working as a Kindermusik class assistant a year ago and was enamored as she witnessed the children grow and learn through the joy of music— inspiring her to go through the Kindermusik Educator training. She became a licensed Kindermusik Educator this spring and has taught Kindermusik classes since June. She also works at Calvary Chapel Tucson with teenagers as a mentor and worship director— training the teens up to lead worship. Kaylee has performed in a worship band for churches and outreaches all over Arizona and is a talented musician. Kaylee has an extensive background in childcare. Born in Nashville, TN as her parents pursued music there, but raised in Tucson, AZ — she loves the rich culture and beautiful desert landscape our city has to offer and is so excited to share her passion for music through the Kindermusik experience!
