"The sound of music that is born of human breath comes straighter from the soul than any sound the hand alone can make."-Anon.

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, VA, 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. 

​​McNulty Studio is open for ONLINE lessons and limited IN-STUDIO and OUTDOOR lessons. Contact Peggy by email or phone to schedule and set up your voice lessons.


​​Stay well, and keep singing!

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.
