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!

Had our first lesson with Scott. He was great with my 7 year old. We look forward to future lessons with him!

Very personable and eager to share his love of music. He’s not looking to teach you “his way” but meeting you where you’re at and helping you get to where you want to go, musically.

"Raymond is a wonderful instructor! He figures out my level of understanding and knowledge of musical concepts and makes it easy to improve on the guitar--even though I have very little time to practice. His patient manner and great sense of humor help me feel good about what I do on the guitar. His wisdom and kindness help me in other parts of my daily life by giving me a deeper sense of the importance of "process" for many activities, and by helping me to develop more patience for myself. He's not only a great guitar teacher, but an important person in my life, as a mentor and a friend! I highly recommend him to the beginner or more advanced student. Whatever your level of dedication, you will not be disappointed with his!"

"I'm currently taking electric guitar lessons from Joe. Without a doubt, it is the highlight of my week to spend an hour jamming with him. While learning a new instrument is always difficult (especially one as physically/mentally demanding as the guitar), Joe is endlessly knowledgeable and always has a cool new trick to show me to make everything less daunting and more fun. It has been such a joy to be instructed by someone so funny, talented, patient, and kind. I cannot recommend Joe enough!"
