Owen Doherty is a Washington D.C. based Piano, Voice, and Clarinet Instructor who has been playing the piano and singing ever since he can remember. He's trained from classical to pop (with a whole lot in between) and has had the great fortune of being able to play piano at Carnegie Hall, and Mozart’s wine cellar in Vienna!
Owen a BA from the College of William and Mary with a double major in Music and Government. While there, he was the Music Director of the Gentlemen of the College, an all-male barbershop/pop a cappella group. Their videos are available on YouTube! While getting the Music major at William and Mary, Owen wrote some of his own music and took classes to learn the sitar. Additionally, he helped his fellow students perform at concert events on campus.
Owen's teaching experience is mostly based in working with elementary ages and adult students, though he loves working with all age groups-- from age 5 to 95! When teaching any instrument, Owen enjoys exploring different genres with his students and giving them a platform to be creative. Finding what is most special to students about music and establishing strong fundamentals are essentials within Owen's lessons. His hope is that students grow to love music and develop a new outlet of expression through their lessons with him.
