Peggy McNulty believes that the total body is the instrument of the voice. She has taught voice for over 30 years. She offers private voice lessons in her McLean, Virginia, studio.


Peggy teaches teens and adults. Her teaching schedule includes teens representing 10 different high schools! Instruction is tailored to meet each student’s needs and interests. Because music is meant to be shared, students are encouraged to participate in regularly scheduled workshops
and recitals.


Peggy’s personal joy in singing and her commitment to teaching have stimulated her students to participate in musical activities in their communities. Several current students are participating in church and school choirs, and also are performing roles in school and community theater. Peggy’s former students maintain contact with her and share their delight in singing as they continue to study and perform.


Peggy herself continues to study and give performances. She has sought out private instruction for herself. She has 30 years of voice study under the direction of well-known musicians and teachers, including Marianna Busching, Gillian Cookson,
Todd Duncan, George Gibson, Dr. James McDonald, Martha Randall, Jennie Tourel, and Jane White.


Peggy is an active participant in voice-related professional conferences and meetings in the United States.
