"Mike is an exceptional voice instructor. He has helped me prepare for ISSMA contest and other competitions, my college audition, and musical auditions. He is able to instruct in many different music genres, and was able to explain difficult or technical concepts in an easy-to-understand manner. I would recommend Mike to anyone wanting to improve their vocal performance, whether on stage, in competition, in a choir, or just for personal fulfillment."

"I have worked with Michael for a few years, hiring him as a vocal coach for many of the singers that work with the agency I own. He is well-versed in what he teaches, helping singers improv their craft, whether they are beginners or seasoned veterans. He has a caring personality, an endless supply of energy and an infectious laugh, so he's great to work with. People can relax and focus on the task at hand. He has an impressive resume and would be a benefit to anyone who signs up for private voice lessons!"

"Mr. Peterson is absolutely Astounding. He has been coaching me for only two months and he has transformed my voice ten fold. He is full of energy, vigor, and genuine desire to see his students achieve. The technic in which he teaches is beautiful and true to the origins of music. A dear friend of mine recommended him to me and I am truly glad that I went with this choice. Singing in the shower and at work was about all I was capable of, since I am very introverted. Every session we have I am filled with encouragement and confidence that I never thought I could acquire. My range has exceeded what I thought possible, my technique can produce crystal power awesomeness, and I'm learning genres I never thought I would fall in love with. On a scale of 1-10, I give Mr. Peterson an +infinity. Thank you, sir, for all that you are instilling in me. "

"Mike Peterson is a transformational vocal coach. My daughter began training with him when she was in 6th grade. She has a God-given talent for singing, but Mike has helped her really know how to use it. He has helped develop her into a confident singer who has tackled many challenging pieces of music--all genres--at a very young age. He's always so encouraging and he has a real talent for helping singers know where to "place the sound." We're blessed to have him as my daughter's voice teacher."

"Michael Peterson is a true teacher. He has a passion for teaching youth using his personal experience, formal research and anecdotes passed on to him through the years. within the first lesson I could tell he knew what he was talking about. I now have been with him for 9 months now and my vocal skill has improve 100%. When I first started I couldn't match pitch, and my voice was breathy and slow. Within 10 minutes he diagnosed the problem and had the proper correction. I can honestly say that my lesson is the highlight of my week. I drive an hour roundtrip every Monday to improve my voice. I'm happy he took me under his wing and by doing so has given me a newfound sense of confidence in everything I do. The only thing is he expects hard work. He won't waste your time, as long as you don't waste his. Great man and great teacher. "

"We feel so blessed to have crossed paths with Mike Peterson. His obvious passion, love, and talent for song has been evident in his coaching with our daughter. Mike has presented wonderful opportunities for her to advance herself vocally and we have seen our daughter blossom over the past seven months with her god given talent into a confident singer. Mike's ability to teach music in a manner that makes it fun to learn but also keeping it professional at the same time is what keeps us coming back. We recommend Mike 100%!"
