Youth4Music Leadership Symposium

Céline Peterson is a Writer, Speaker, and Social Media Manager with a passion for the arts. Growing up in a family with a legacy beyond compare, led Céline to discover the depth of the life lessons she learned while extensively traveling the world during the first 16 years of her life. “Being given the opportunity to be exposed to various cultures around the globe, opened the doors to endless creative possibilities for me.”

Céline has a deep passion for the advancement of music in schools around the world. “Through the places I visited and the people who surrounded me, I developed a sense of how powerful music is and the importance of early exposure to a variety of music at a young age.” Along with giving a keynote speech for Copenhagen’s International Jazz Day celebrations, Céline has spoken on the importance of music education and the advancement of the arts in Toronto, Ottawa, Barbados,and New York.


Now currently penning the first instalment of her memoirs, Céline also runs “Social Legacy” – Social Media Management exclusively for artists and music organizations. She is a proud Youth Ambassador for Youth4Music, and enjoys working with the team at Music Makes Us. “It brings me immense joy to do as much as I can to support the coalition and their vision for music education in Canada. If I can connect with even one person through something I wrote, and share the importance of community involvement in music advancement, then I am satisfied. Youth4Music has given myself and dozens of others that opportunity.”
