“Ray is very versatile in her skillsets, as a musician and as a teacher. She will tailor lessons to fit your needs and will do an amazing job. She has changed my daughter’s life by bringing music into her life. She was the best fit for the job…

…Since then, my daughter has performed several times in front of her entire high school and has taken classes on music production and also choir. Ray was instrumental in these and future accomplishments still to come. ” – Rachel O., SLO County CA

I am excited to dive back into offering my services as a music teacher. I have extensive experience teaching both teens and adults. I TAed at overnight music camps (Community Music School Santa Cruz) and I have facilitated group projects that united youth from around the world and have since gone on to record several albums (Fuel Our Fire). In addition to these summer programs I have also taught private students on The Central Coast of California and in online songwriting workshops with songwriter Phoebe Hunt (THAW, Soldier Songs and Voices).

When teaching it is my ultimate goal to give my students the tools needed to achieve their own personal musical goals, and to become more comfortable and more empowered to express themselves through music and song. I tailor every lesson plan to my student’s unique needs.

LESSONS: Songwriting, Intro to guitar, Intro to piano, Beginning voice, Intermediate Voice, Background Singing 101 (advanced), Songwriting coaching


One 45 minute lesson $50

Bundle of 4 lessons: 15% off discount

I offer lessons both in person and online. Am willing to travel to clients anywhere in Davidson County TN. (Piano students must have a piano or keyboard). To book a lesson simply email me at rayduncanbooking@gmail.com

COVID_19 Safety: I myself am fully vaccinated, and am comfortable with being inside and unmasked (I also don’t have a problem wearing a mask, although that might be a bit of a hinderance if we are doing voice lessons). I can offer most lessons (besides piano) outside for anyone who is still practicing social distancing, and if you are very concerned about getting sick you can always opt for virtual lessons. All I want is for you to feel comfortable and safe during our time together.
