PETER HELD

Peter graduated from the Wheaton College Conservatory of Music in 2011 with a degree in Music Education and a K-12 Illinois Teaching License. In his time at Wheaton College, he sensed a calling into the teaching profession, and has never looked back.

Peter has also had many unique jobs including: college post office worker, member of a "4am snow crew", lumberjack, musical instrument salesman, sales department manager, private music lesson instructor, and freelance French Horn performer. 

Peter currently the Dean of Academics, as well as the Music Director, at CLA. As the Dean, he is in charge of teacher observations, ACSI accreditation, curriculum oversight, and a member of the school board.
