Peggy McNulty Voice Studio
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.

She has studied voice with Peggy since September and during this time, she has made great progress. She has performed in two student voice workshops and in the Winter Recital. This past weekend she sang in the Northern Virginia Music Teachers Voice Achievements Competition. She also sang the national anthem for a crowd at her sister’s senior night Langley lacrosse game, and she has been asked back for a return engagement!
Her love of singing began when she was in third grade. She played the role of Gretyl in Cooper Middle School’s production of The Sound of Music. She then starred as Beauty in her sixth grade’s production of Beauty and the Beast. This spring she is playing a major role in Cooper Middle School’s production of Monty Python’s Spamalot.
Besides being a very talented young singer, Sophie swims and plays lacrosse while trying to keep up with her three older sisters!
