Great teacher. Teaching in steps and then adding more to it and repeating is the best way to go and Rufus is doing just that with me. All ready in 3rd lesson as a beginner and im getting the hand of it pretty quick. I will learn this song in no time and perhaps a few more just for the fun of it.

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

About Mary

About You for Take Lessons Teaching music students for over 30 years has enriched my life. My relationship with my students is a two-way street. I create a course of study to fit their individual interests and needs and often learn from them as we explore their interest in God's wonderful gift of music!

My classical training is also enhanced by participation in Broadway, contemporary, folk, pop music and sacred music styles. Teaching at various private ...

Mary is the kind of person that brings happiness to her surroundings.
I have studied voice with many teachers, but Mary's coaching is the first time that I really understand what I need to improve in my singing practices. Mary’s advice is very accurate and she pinpoints these flaws. Only half a year has passed since I started practicing singing with her; however, I can profess that she is the best teacher I have had so far. I thought my voice was becoming rusty as I aged, but it is a happy surprise that it is improving! I also feel healthier since I started to learn from Mary.
Her voice training is good for anyone who wishes to improve her/his singing technique regardless of the genre of music/songs. I recommend her singing lessons for opera voice training, popular singing from the heart, or hobby singing and body conditioning. Mary's coverage is really wide.

Mary is a very great music instructor, she takes her time with you until you get a hang of what you are practicing with your voice. She is really patient and does not rush you into anything you are not comfortable with yet. Mary is a very good instructor, and I suggest her to others.

I have always thought of playing-by-ear as being mysterious and beyond the reach of most humans. I thought one had to be born with that ability. I was SO wrong. Osmond proved to me that this ability is within the reach of everyone. He de-mystified the whole process WONDERFULLY. When he revealed to me how easy the process is, and when I saw and heard myself doing what I previously thought was impossible, I cried ( tears of joy).

I am amazed at how rapidly my 6 year old daughter learned to play 2 of her favorite songs ( after just 4 lessons ). She is even adding some fancy flourishes to give her playing a professional sounding touch. Absolutely wonderful.
