Peter Romney is a cellist and music teacher currently located in the Washington County Area, though he also has opened his studio to remote students via FaceTime and Skype. Having switched from the violin at age six, Peter made music the main focus of his childhood. He successfully graduated from all ten Suzuki books under the guidance of Richard Hoyt in Salt Lake City, and competed in the Utah State Fair six consecutive years, receiving an honorable mention at age 13 for his performance of the Saint-Seans concerto in A minor. He also performed and toured with the Young Artists Chamber Players, the Valley String Quartet, and on his own. Since high school, Peter has performed with various jazz and alternative music ensembles, most recently Theta Naught, with whom he recorded four studio albums and completed three tours of the western US. Peter has continued his study in the Suzuki method and has maintained a home studio for 12 of the last 14 years. He is a member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas, the Suzuki Association of Utah, and is registered with the SAA in pre-twinkle, and Books 1 through 7, most recently under the guidance of AliceAnn O'Neill. "It is my belief that teaching music through the Suzuki method is the best way to nurture the expression of a beautiful soul. In my studio it happens through music, but it is my goal for the student to continue that expression in everything they do."
