About Me

I have been playing music since I was 9 years old. I studied piano with Robin Kaplan, Mark Evans, Lee Shaw, and Dr. Gary Bush. In 2004 I completed a Bachelors of Arts degree in Music Composition and Production from the Purchase Conservatory at Purchase College in West Chester, NY. Recently I completed a very successful tour as pianist for the United States Marine Corps Band, based in Cherry Point, NC. My performance experience includes jazz, R&B, reggae, classical, rock, funk, country, and DCI style marching band. I am very inspired by the vast world of music and I encourage my students to explore many genres of music in their studies.

*** Lesson Details ***
I approach music instruction with a very open mind. I am a pretty laid back teacher, despite my Marine Corps training. I find that students who enjoy what they are learning are much more likely to practice and succeed. From the first lesson I reinforce strong technique, practice habits and ear training within the context of students' interests. I also work to expand students' musical world with many take home listenings. In the first 3-6 months students can expect to learn to read and write basic notes and rhythms, the origins of the instrument and the music written for it, and most importantly, students will learn to play some songs and build their repertoir. That, of course, is just the beginning of what is, hopefully, a life long fascination with music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In my studio I have comfortable seating for parents, and upright piano, drumset, electric drumset, digital pianos, and computer with recording and playback capabilities.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide portable keyboards, laptop computer, and recording equipment. I expect piano students to have their own piano or keyboard and my drum students to have, at least a snare drum and/or practice pad.

Through a creative, fun and individualized approach to teaching, my students also learn ear training, sight reading, music theory, piano technique and music history as it pertains to the pieces they are currently learning. After one month, beginning students can expect to have learned how to play one piece of music of their choosing and one piece of music chosen by me. After a few months of studying with me, they can expect to have gained basic music reading skills.

Erika G. Saint Petersburg, FL

Subjects Taught

ACT English, ACT Reading, Essay Writing, Grammar, Music Theory, Piano, Viola, Violin

About Me

Erika is a multi-instrumentalist on a mission - to share the power of music with as many people as possible!

Raised by an opera singer, Erika was exposed to classical music before birth; she knew how to read music before she could read words! From an early age, Erika knew that she was going to be a musician. At 10 years old, she began her study of piano; at 12, she taught herself viola and violin. Her career started at the age of 14 with a church pianist job and her very first private student. By 16, she was playing viola with the local symphony orchestra, accompanying collegiate vocalists, and teaching adults 20 years her senior. Before leaving for college, Erika had the very special honor of being one of eight pianists chosen state-wide to attend the Tennessee Governor's School for the Arts.

Erika received her Bachelor's Degree in viola performance from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville. She received her Master's Degree in viola performance at Lamont School of Music, University of Denver. During her contracted time at Lamont, Erika was also the viola Graduate Teaching Assistant. After earning her Masters Degree, Erika plans to pursue a Doctorate in viola pedagogy. Erika has also played with numerous symphonies and chamber groups.

With fourteen years of teaching and performance experience, Erika believes that anyone can learn an instrument and that everyone benefits from music!

*** Lesson Details ***
I tailor my lesson plans to each individual student because everyone has their own unique learning style. Our first lesson will consist of finding out which learning style works best for you (i.e. visual, auditory, tactile) and what you want to accomplish during our time together. If you already have some experience on your instrument we'll also do an assessment, which is basically you playing a prepared piece of your choice for me.

As a teacher, I like to provide as well-rounded an education as I possibly can. Not only do you learn how to play your instrument, but you'll also learn the "building blocks" of Western music, the "whys" of music, and how to perform in front of an audience.

I'm an extremely laid back and easy going person; I understand just how busy and unpredictable life can be! That being said, playing an instrument isn't easy and does require practice and hard work - not to worry, though - it'll still be fun and rewarding!

My curriculum does vary based on instrument, age, and skill level. For young beginners learning violin/viola, I prefer to use the Suzuki Method (Pre-Twinkle - Book 4). When teaching piano, I've found the Alfred Series to be beneficial to both young and adult students (beginning through intermediate). With my advanced students, I use literature in the standard repertoire. However, if there's a certain method or set of books that you've used in previous lessons and would like to continue with, I'll be happy to accommodate you.

Everyone learns and masters concepts at their own pace, so it's quite difficult to predict where a student will be in just a few months. For Pre-Twinkle students, many graduate to their real instrument between 2-6 months. Many beginning piano students will be playing music with both hands and chords by 3 months. Students that have prior experience can expect to learn at least a few new concepts by 3 months. One of the most important things to remember about music lessons is that you get what you put in. In other words, your progress directly correlates with the amount of hard work that you do!

Lastly, I would like to explain my parent/guardian involvement policy regarding younger students. I require an adult present in every lesson if the student is under 13, preferably one that lives with the student. The reason for this requirement is for practice - it's extremely difficult for students that age to correct their own posture, learn their own music, etc. unless they have consistent help from someone that is observing and participating in their lessons. While I don't require an adult present for students 13 and older, if you do wish to observe, you're more than welcome to!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my profile, have a wonderful day!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Anything and everything you could possibly need to learn music!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide my own instrument and music stand; if required, I can also provide public domain music. I expect my student to provide a distraction free, quiet area so that our lessons can be as productive as possible. I expect my student to provide their own instrument, notebook, and music; at a certain level, the student will also need access to a metronome/tuner during practice. I prefer that students purchase their own music so that they can use it forever.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical music and am trained in the Suzuki Method (violin/viola) pre-twinkle through book four.

Every month I give my students a test that shows there progress in that month. The quiz consists of multiple choice, true/false, fill in the blank, and short answer questions.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have my own transportation.

Piano Lessons for Tampa's Every Mood

By Lisa F. - Tampa Piano Teacher

Through years of research, it is a well researched conclusion that studying piano increases intelligence. Everything from higher math and reading scores to increasing IQ's has been studied, put to the test via the scientific method and positively proven. Simply put, students who take music lessons do better in overall school performance. It is also well known that music influences mood. Think about all the emotions you had the last time you watched a movie and experienced the effects of the so-called "background music".

Yet, music has a function that is far greater than positively impacting academic performance or setting the mood. Music can actually be used to change an emotional state from a negative one to a positive one. I have had many ...
