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.

"My boys, ages 7 & 5, started piano lessons with Aaron a year ago. He has taught them technique & theory all while using songs they boys love. There are days that the boys are not the most cooperative. Aaron is amazingly patient and persistent in getting the boys to do their lessons. I really appreciate and have learned from this patience when it comes to the nightly practicing. I am pleased that the boys have been working with a male teacher and I think it really helps them relate to the music and the lessons. If you are looking for a patient yet knowledgeable piano teacher, I would definitely recommend Aaron."
