Getting older and noticing a change in my vocal patterns was causing me some concern. Francesca not only listened to me about my concerns but she talked me through the physicality of how my vocal chords worked and how I can best sing in a way that does no damage but gets maximum range, power and tone. I have never taken vocal lessons before so this was such amazing information to have and to put into practice. When you know better, you do better. I can't recommend BugByte Studios enough! Thanks sister!

Francesca is not only a wonderful person, but she is a great teacher! No matter what age you are, from beginner to very skilled, Francesca offers a gracious, positive approach, with strong encouragement that helps a student to feel safe. I have enjoyed every lesson that I've had with Francesca! She is extremely patient and able to offer positive instruction to correct any unhealthy habits. I am excited and honored to have an opportunity to work with such an experienced voice teacher. She is wonderful!!! I would recommend her to anyone! Keep up the great work Francesca, you are loved by many.

About Steve

Learning to play music should be fun. Learning to play the songs you like and listen to everyday is a good first step in that direction. As early as I can remember our house was filled with music. My parents had records of the popular music of the time as well as movie soundtrack albums. At ei

Great instructor!

Barbara is a fantastic instructor. I took lessons as a child into my mid teens and quit. I recently decided to start back up. With 20+ years gap in my instruction, I was nervous about finding an instructor who could keep up with me. I knew I could still easily play music but would have LOTS of questions in the interim that I theoretically would have known otherwise playing the given level of music.

Barbara has been a PERFECT fit for what I was looking for in an instructor. She’s been helping me refine my skills and fill in many gaps in my instruction. She’s been wonderfully supportive and encouraging. I’ve felt my confidence grow tremendously over the last month. I can truly sense that she’s as excited to be teaching as I am to be learning.

I HIGHLY recommend Barb, especially to adults looking to rekindle a long lost love of piano<3

I get a lot out of every lesson and a lot to take away and work on in practice as well. Great experience and I've noticeably improved after just a few lessons.

Very insightful and made me feel comfortable right away
Olivia
My 9 year old daughter really liked Robert. She started from scratch and learned new skills, many notes and a couple of songs in 2 1/2 hours of lessons. She told me he was really nice and I was impressed with her progress. He was very easy to work with and was always prompt to the lessons.

"Rick taught our 7-year old son for quite a few months, and did a fantastic job. We were pleased with his energy, enthusiasm, and ability to connect with young people.

We were sad when our son decided that he'd like to take a break from music and play more tennis, but hope that this, his first musical experience, will inspire him to return to it at some later point.

I highly recommend Rick."
