Erika G. Saint Petersburg, FL

About Erika

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 ...

I am an adult student and find Erika to be a very capable teacher. She is encouraging and easy going. She has helpful suggestions and willing to help me with all of my questions and choices of music and practice procedures. She always knows how to correct my mistakes while still encouraging me. She does not waste any of our time yet I think I may change my 30 minute lessons to 45 minutes to maybe an hour. She gives me written home work, which is good as I quickly forget things said during the lesson.

From the first time Erika came into our home to teach my 10 year old daughter, we all felt relaxed, comfortable and happy to have her here. My daughter adores the lessons! they go by so quickly and even though they cover a lot of ground and Erik is strict about the learning and getting it right, she is always so encouraging and supportive! I hear them laughing lots and my daughter is always happy and glowing after the lesson. she practices more readily and looks forward to her lesson every week!. So thank you Erika

Chip has been an inspiration for me from the very beginning. During our initial call he assured me that anyone can learn to sing any genre they wanted. This is exactly what I needed to hear because I was very nervous about whether I could actually learn to sing. I've had four lessons with Chip and I am so very impressed with the progress we have already made. I find myself eager to grow so I can show him just how much of an impact he makes in the lives of those he teaches. He gets so excited when he see progress that it motivates you to want to rehearse more so he can see the improvement the following week as well. I am extremely grateful to have found takelessons and Chip! The added bonus is that the lessons are affordable! I would / will recommend Chip to anyone looking to grow in the areas he teaches.

I have been singing for several years (intermediate / advanced, mixed voice, pop and other genres). I have had two other voice teachers. Chip is by far the most effective. He quickly corrects mistakes in a way that is positive and easy to understand. He is not only very talented, but a good guy; he takes the pressure off any self-conscious student, which is so important. When I sing, I pretend there's a little Chip Dugan listening on my shoulder, so I am reminded to use the good techniques I learned from him

(This is Kari's daughter writing the review as I am the one receiving the lessons) Jennifer is honestly the best instructor I have ever had. She's so understanding about having to reschedule due to personal issues. She teaches in a way that's very focused for your individual learning style and she's also very honest which is always nice when you're learning a skill. I love Jennifer and I would definitely recommend using her for your child.
