Anna Catherine Peterson is an educator and oboist in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and has been teaching in Keller since May 2018. Anna is a recent graduate of the University of Iowa, where she completed her Masters in Oboe Performance studying with Andrew Parker and Courtney Miller.

Anna has distinguished herself as a musician, performer, and scholar in many ways during her career thus far. Placing particular emphasis on her love of the oboe as well as history and culture, she has studied extensively  abroad both in Paris, France and Vienna, Austria at the Institute for the International Education of Students. While abroad Anna studied for a semester with David Walter, Professor of oboe and chamber music at the Conservatoire de Paris and participated in both performance and history
related seminars in Vienna, Austria.

Other exciting accolades include a large grant from the Undergraduate Research and Graduate Opportunity Office at Augsburg College in 2013— Anna was able to do an extensive study into the history and development of the oboe reed gouging machine alongside her mentor, Merilee Klemp. Accomplished as an orchestral musician and soloist, Anna has been featured as a soloist multiple times with the Augsburg Symphony Orchestra on both oboe and English horn. Her latest projects include performing with the ‘Vijf’ Reed Quintet, of which she is a founding member.
