    I believe in healthy singing and finding the type of music that best suits your voice! I am a classically trained singer, but most of my students sing musical theater and popular repertoire. Many of my students audition for shows, and I love helping them find auditions, pick out appropriate repertoire, and prepare for auditions. I also have many students who just enjoy singing and want to improve their technique.

    About Belinda
    I have been teaching voice and piano since 2010, and I love sharing music with others! I am available for in-home and online lessons, and I teach a variety of styles for both voice and piano. My higher education studies are in vocal performance with a focus on classical music, opera, and art song, but a lot of my vocal students work on musical theater and popular repertoire. My piano students also play a variety of styles, and I teach many to play and sing at the same time!

    I treat every student with respect, and I truly enjoy getting to know them as well. I like to have fun in my lessons, but I also have years of training and musical knowledge to impart to my students. I am well versed in vocal pedagogy (the science of vocal production), and I use this education to promote healthy singing! I received my Bachelor of Music in Vocal Perf
    ormance at Boston University and my Master of Music and Doctorate of Music in Vocal Performance at Arizona State University.

    My 12 year old daughter is loving her singing lessons with Belinda. She is always so excited to go to her lessons and always leaves with a smile on her face. My daughter is wanting to do some musical theater auditions in the near future, and Belinda is helping her find and prepare for the auditions. We are so glad we found Belinda!

    · Classical Voice · In studio
    I have been singing my entire life, but I really wanted to learn a more classical technique. I am so glad I am taking lessons with Belinda! She is so knowledgable about the voice, and she makes sure that I feel comfortable with the singing sounds that I make. I think the classical technique also improves my singing when I sing non-classical songs.

    Currently Offering Group Master Classes for Vocal Training.

    ~2 hour group class for $40.00~

    Feel free to reach out regarding dates and give Takelessons a call to book the lessons.

    I am a singer-pianist-actor Or a pianist-singer-actor. :-)
    I have a bachelors degree in voice performance and a minor in piano and theater.
    I have a masters degree in voice as well as a second masters in piano literature.
    i have a certificate in comedy improvisation from Second City and am a professional actor. I am the owner and senior talent agent of a large talent agency in the DFW area.
    My post graduate work is in vocal pedagogy.
    I have been a professional teacher and performer for over 20 years.
    I own and manage a professional talent agency in the DFW area.
    My students come in every model imaginable - and I wouldn't have it any oth
    er way. Raw beginner or veteran actor or musician, professional recording artist, College music major or American Idol wannabe.

    The arts are such a great language for communicating. I grew up with two parents who were professional musicians (mom is a concert pianist) and I also raised 3 children who are professional musicians. We made music our native language in our home. We all have the ability to speak music when it is spoken to us. I don’t ever remember not playing the piano. I started winning piano competitions in high school. I minored in piano, and then did additional post graduate work in piano. I “speak” piano. It has served me so well as a teacher, composer, opera coach. It is really a gateway to understanding all other instruments. The same scenario with my singing.

    I began my professional career as an opera singer which has taken me around the world. I have premiered works by Leonard Bernstein and Samuel Adler in addition to principal roles and concert work with Pittsburgh Opera, The Pittsburgh Symphony, Dayton Opera, the Tuscia Opera Festival and hundreds of professional engagements. I have also had the wonderful opportunity to belt the National Anthem for several major league teams in a television appearance- and has done so on multiple occasions. (Pittsburgh Pirates, Pittsburgh Penguins, Pittsburgh Steelers, Cincinnati Reds) I am passionate about vocal jazz and musical theater and am frequently found as a performer in various national and regional venues. Feature concert works include PBS (Gershwin in Concert) as well as featured solo concert works (Pergolesi Stabat Mater) on Italian Public TV.

    My approach to music has always been to do what you love. I have never limited myself as a performer to a genre or an instrument. I have explored, applied myself to and enjoyed a very diverse musical career. If you have a passion for an instrument or style of music let's start there first... and then let's discover together all the things you do that uniquely define your musicianship style.

    *** Lesson Details ***
    Your lessons will always be engaging, challenging and fun!

    I am very consistent in my approach to technique, my focus on goals and my demand for excellence. I constantly am working to access with you what your goals are and to provide feedback and support to help you achieve them.

    I am very flexible in utilizing a wide variety of repertoire, resources etc. Your lessons are personalized to your skill set and your musical interests. I utilize audio and video recordings almost every week for all my students. I routinely promote and encourage my students to participate in a wide variety of competitions, recitals, workshops and master classes.

    I have a very low turnover rate for students and a very high rate of students who have progressed to professional full time careers in music. Students like being a part of my studio and really like the confidence they have in their music abilities in a very short period of time.

    I do not use the same curriculum for all students, in face, each curriculum is customized for that student. The components are similar: technique, repertoire, theory, listening, composing, recording and performing.

    You can expect the following:You will feel very encouraged and supported in your talent. You will have measurable improvement in your skills. You will have a personal advocate to encourage and direct you in finding and creating opportunities to succeed in your music personally, academically and professionally.

    I can't wait to get started!

    I have a simple, no-nonsense approach to vocal training, helping students build the vocal strength and coordination necessary to sing efficiently, using principles and exercises learned through over a decade of intensive vocal study in NYC.

    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.

    About Willie
    Teaching music is a passion for me because I wish i would of had someone like me to teach me lessons. When I first took lessons as a kid I was given music to learn and went home and immediately broke a guitar string. The bad thing was is that i was never shown how to properly string and tune the instrument. The money on that first lesson was wasted because i was never able to restring and retune my guitar until my next lesson and had not practiced any of my music i was given. I will teach you A-Z everything you will need to know to practice, play and enjoy your music the way you want to and enjoy doing it every step of the way!
