About David
David discovered his love for music early on at the age of seven with the musical/movie: The Sound of Music. He and his siblings would entertain their babysitter by acting out the entire musical - singing and dancing along with the soundtrack. To make it even more fun, they would sometimes speed up the vinyl record and perform in extra-fast mode!

He vividly remembers his first real musical instruction back in elementary school:
“Everyone in 4th Grade was given a Recorder to learn how to play 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star'. When the music teacher had the class play together, she noticed that I wasn't looking down at my music booklet as I played, since I was 'playing by ear'. Not only was my booklet turned to the wrong page; it was upside down as well! To admonish me, she had me stand up in front of the whole class and play
solo - as she held the booklet in front of me. Enthusiastically, I rendered the complete song correctly, only pretending to read from the page as she held it, but actually 'playing by ear'. Upon getting to the end of the tune, I suddenly broke out in a jazzed-up, improvised version of 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star', arousing the whole class to spontaneously tap their feet in rhythm and clap with delight . . . my first solo performance!”

David eventually took up guitar in his teens, becoming involved with playing for musicals such as "Godspell" and "Jesus Christ Superstar". During high school, he also played in the Bluegrass band 'Odell & Zeke', and in the Rock band 'Ring Wraith', performing for local dances and proms.

Extremely versatile within classical and popular guitar styles, David played in the Top-40-Hit music video, Shine Shine, by The Bee Gees' Barry Gibb – alongside pop-star legend - Michael Jackson. David is also mentioned in Just Jazz Guitar Magazine for his jazz endeavors; and he has years of experience as a church music director.

As a Classical concert guitarist, David has performed throughout the USA and Europe. His live performances have been broadcast on television and radio: NPR’s Performance Today (USA); CBC’s Arts National (Canada); RAI Television’s In Concerto (Italy), and the Hungarian National Television. Successful in competitions, David won First Prize in the 20th International Guitar Competition in Milan, Italy and First Prize in the National Wurlitzer Artist Competition, USA. He has received other awards and grants as well, including a Solo Recitalist Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Governor's Award from Department of State, Florida. Moreover, he was chosen for the rosters of both the California State Touring Program and the North Carolina Visiting Artists Program.

David’s 35 years of teaching and performing experience, coupled with intensive years of formal studies with many of the world's greatest guitarists, including Andres Segovia, Eliot Fisk, David Russell, Christopher Parkening, Holzman, Ghiglia, Morgen, Tomas, Isbin - have afforded him a rich and in-depth understanding of music and the guitar. He shares all of this with his students in an insightful and uniquely original manner.

David is the rare combination of a true artist who wants to help others discover their own musical voice. He is always able to find a solution to my technical problems, with the goal of helping me play more musically. He takes me seriously as a student, challenging and encouraging me with understanding, patience and kindness.

David was very knowledgeable about music and made it easy to understand. This was especially important to me since I am starting new, not having any musical background other than a love for music and a passion to play. This instructor helped me realize I have potential which is also important. After just one lesson I was able to take what he taught me and put some of his advice together musically and it is starting to make sense. I am looking forward to my future lessons!

About Debbie
Introduction:

Debbie is available for lessons in her home studio in Potterstone Village, Pittsboro. Music is a lifelong gift that Debbie is so excited to share with you and help you accomplish all your musical dreams and goals. She especially loves to work with children and adults with ADD and ADHD because she knows personally how music can positively impact and benefit the brain of one diagnosed with those conditions. In fact, ADD and ADHD are conditions that are viewed as a benefit when learning music, and strengthens your ability to learn and play an instrument. And conversely, learning a musical instrument actually increases your ability to focus and concentrate, translating to all other areas of your life as well.

Debbie has been playing guitar, ukulele, and clarinet for over years 30 and has been giving private lessons since
1997. Debbie teaches children and adults from beginner to intermediate levels. She especially enjoys teaching parents who want to learn just a few basic chords on guitar and ukulele to give them the ability to create a fun and engaging musical experience that they can share with their children. Getting started is really easy and lots of fun in the process!

Debbie enjoys a variety of musical genres including, but not limited to; classical, jazz, folk, rock, pop, and children's music.

So, if you are looking to change your life or the life of your child, give them the gift of music by scheduling a lesson with Debbie right now. If you do not see a time on her schedule that is convenient for you, please contact her and she will make every effort to work with you to get you scheduled for a time that works best for you.

Experience:

Debbie attended Suffolk College in Selden, New York, where she earned her degree in music performance as a clarinet and voice major. She continued her musical training in music performance at the prestigious Aaron Copeland School of Music at Queens College in Flushing, Queens, NY, where admittance is by audition only, also majoring in clarinet and voice. In addition to learning about musical performance, she also received vigorous training in music theory, sight reading, dictation, and ear training. All these skills are paramount to succeeding as an exceptional musician and musical instructor.

Although Debbie was trained as a classical clarinetist and vocalist, she was also a member of the guitar ensemble and played clarinet and alto sax in the jazz band, giving her experience in other genres of music as well beyond classical.

After graduating college, Debbie spent a few years playing her clarinet and alto sax in the orchestra for numerous musicals in theaters around the New York area. In addition, she also sang and played acoustic guitar during college with her band in local establishments around Long Island.

Most recently, before the birth of her children, Debbie was active in the musical program of her church in Cary, NC, where she sang in the choir, played clarinet in the chamber orchestra for special musical events, and played guitar and ukulele, and sang for the children's Sunday school. Activities she looks forward to returning to in the near future.

Currently, Debbie plays mostly for her own pleasure, and plays guitar and ukulele on a regular basis for her Wife and two young children, engaging them in fun singing and dancing musical time. "Music is a staple in our home and I hope to help you make it a staple in your home as well. Music truly brings people and families together!"

"Music is life. That is why our hearts have beats." ~ Cecily Morgan

About Ted
My name is Ted D. and I have been teaching private lessons in both guitar and voice for over a decade. I began playing guitar at age eleven and continued into college, where I majored in guitar performance. While in college I began studying voice seriously, adding a vocal performance major to my degree. I moved to New York City for additional vocal training, and sang leading roles in many opera productions in the NY/NJ area.

I currently serve as Director of Music and Worship at HOPE Presbyterian Church in North Raleigh, and my performance experience ranges from playing and singing in rock bands and as a solo acoustic act to performing in opera houses and concert halls with symphony orchestras. Whether teaching guitar or voice, I focus on developing proper and efficient technique with my students that enables them to perform in a wide r
ange of styles and performance venues.

“If you can sing opera you can sing anything.” This is something I learned while taking vocal lessons with Ted Dougherty. Many voice teachers aim to silo you into one style of singing but that is not the case with Ted. He will help you build your voice to be the strongest it can be while encouraging you to practice and sing the types of music you are passionate about. Ted is an extremely talented musician who not only has the knowledge to teach you new techniques, but also has the ability to demonstrate those techniques. I started voice lessons with him when I was 12 years old and only ended my lessons with him when I went away to college years later. I truly believe, were it not for my lessons with Ted, I would not have the quality voice I have today. If I lived anywhere near Raleigh, NC, nothing would be able to stop me from going for voice lessons with Ted as often as possible.

If you are a singer, do yourself a favor and get lessons with Ted! I took voice lessons with him for two years it's been quite the game changer. I've been a singer since I was 6 and have had a lot of different vocal training and Ted's lessons were unlike any other. I never expected the techniques. They are designed to make you re-conceptualize how to make the sound until your voice is in the right place. The first few months of lessons were unlearning and really strange because it seemed like he was telling me to make ugly sounds most of the time. Later I realized how foundational and fundamental these practices are for a strong and healthy voice. If you stick with it, and practice regularly on your own, you will be able to do what you thought was not possible with your voice. Like perform Queen of the Night, or Defying Gravity, or Carry Underwood. It's been amazing to transform my voice so drastically, and I would never have gotten there without these lessons.

Scott Mulligan is the best acting coach I could hope for. He took a very special interest in me and my talent. And he put his own reputation on the line in order to recommend me to a talent agency, and I got it! I am now working as a professional actor and I couldn’t have done it without Scott Mulligan.

It is my pleasure to write about Percussionist, Jim Roberts, who resides and works throughout the greater Triangle region. He is a gifted, natural musician, who willingly shares his drum talents and techniques throughout the community.
Beside Jim's musical talents he is personable, professional, compassionate, and a patient instructor, who treats his drum students as individuals with their unique musical needs.
Personally, I began my drum lessons as an older student, completely new to any previous musical training. He has calmly and patiently guided me to hear and feel rhythm while playing a Djembe drum. While this is my first encounter with musical instruction, I am learning to enjoy music at a level that I had never experienced.
My hope is for Jim to continue patiently guiding me down this musical drumming pathway..

Both our boys have been taking lessons from Jim for the past five years. One focuses mainly on the drum set while the other focuses on mallets. Instruction has been reliable and excellent. Our boys have made it in to honor bands (e.g. All Districts, All State) and Jim has been a constant support throughout. He is also quite a versatile instructor; he had also had our four children form a band when they were very young. All in all, we highly recommend him as an instructor.

About Catherine
I'm originally from the UK, and have been playing music in one form or another since I was a little girl. I studied at two music conservatoires in England: Guildhall in London and the RNCM in Manchester. During that time I studied bassoon and baroque bassoon, attaining a masters degree in solo performance. After that I completed a post-grad teaching certificate.
Although bassoon is my first instrument, I am also a proficient clarinet player, pianist and singer.
I have worked as a freelance musician in the UK and Europe, including touring with the European Opera Centre and a summer residency with the Dartington Festival Orchestra, Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Ensemble.
As a teacher I am friendly and smiley, I think music lessons should be the highlight of someones week! I can change my lessons to fit you or your child, we can do any s
tyle and it can be as fun or as challenging as you wish. In the past I have taught everything from adult beginners who just want to have some fun and get good enough to join a local band to teenagers studying music at a high standard, taking exams and performing regularly.
