About Doug

Doug Peck is a Los Angeles-based musician and educator. He has appeared in concert with artists like Renée Fleming, Heather Headley, Michelle Williams, Lupe Fiasco, Jessie Mueller, Shemekia Copeland, John Prine, Matthew Polenzani, Kristin Chenoweth, André DeShields, Tovah Feldshuh, Sheryl Lee Ralph, and Ernestine Jackson, among many others.

He conducted the original full orchestration of Carousel at the Glimmerglass Festival and created new Indian/jazz fusion arrangements and orchestrations for the stage version of Disney’s The Jungle Book seen in Chicago and Boston. He served as musical supervisor for the hit off-Broadway musical Ride The Cyclone and is co-creator of the Goodman Theatre’s unique free musical theatre program for talented high school students who would not otherwise have access to conservatory training.

Peck has presented Assassins and Follies in concert, as well as A Night At The Oscars (a marathon concert of every Academy Award-winning song) and A Night At The Tonys (one song from every Tony Award-winning musical), plus concert tributes to Prince, David Bowie, Josephine Baker, Eartha Kitt, Nina Simone, and Tina Turner.

Peck is a graduate of Northwestern University, where he also taught in the National Summer High School Institute Cherubs Program. He is certified in levels I-III of Somatic Voicework™️ as taught by its founder and master teacher Jeannette Lovetri and has also completed levels 1 and 2 of the National Center for Voice and Speech Vocology curriculum.

He served as vocal coach for the final season of Dear White People and is actively involved in Black Lives Matter and anti-racism work nationally. His private clients include Academy Award and Tony Award winners, as well as Golden Globe Nominees and passionate amateurs of all ages.

I value all voices and all genres of music. Learning to sing is learning to come home to our bodies, our voices, and our selves.
