Lessons are fun. My philosophy is that students should have music in their lives and benefit from the lessons they take now for years to come. Learning music will help students with math skills, study habits, and develop a skill that will last for a lifetime.

After 3 months students will understand the fundamentals of their voice, warm up properly, be able to read and sing introductory passages. After 6 months the student will have learned basic music theory, how to read music, and have advanced through singing multiple songs.

About Betsy

Music is the biggest passion in my life. I love being able to share that gift with my students, and look forward to their progress as much as my own. I continue to grow and develop as a musician, and love connecting with people through music. My students all learn to love and appreciate music, t

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!

Opera is such an exciting subject area! It requires not only top-notch technique but also expressiveness in the music and the ability to draw the audience into the moment and feelings of the character. I want to help you bring out the best qualities of your voice so you can engage the audience and truly shine in your role!

About Anna

I grew up in a musical home with a piano teacher for a mom. Consequently, I started learning piano and singing at a young age, and then began taking voice lessons in high school. For the last 19 years I have been studying voice and loving every minute of it! I am a member of the National Associati

Awaz K.
Anna is a delight! She is so knowledgeable and I walk away from every lesson feeling liked I gained so much. I couldn’t be happier that I found her. She truly makes you believe you are capable of being a pianist, and as an adult student that can be difficult to believe. But she does. She’s everything a teacher should be, I highly recommend her!
Christopher O.
Warm, patient, professional teacher. We focused on proper vocal technique for our first lesson. It was fun, and I definitely intend to keep learning with her.

Anna was wonderful to work with. She was very sweet and patient. We loved taking the lessons and will be back.

Meeting John was great, very friendly and professional and to the point, which is my cap of tea and he suggested to get a weighted keys piano to strengthen my fingers, I’m looking into one
Thanks John I will recommend you as a teacher

John is a fantastic instructor. He has a love for educating others on musical expression and he is a wellspring of musical knowledge. He provides a depth to the piano that I wouldn't have noticed if I taught myself how to play.

John emphasized how to shape musical phrases to make music as opposed to a collection of notes. He had a good ear for honing in on my weaknesses such as how some notes that I played stuck out or the movement of my arms. Most importantly, he taught me how to approach practicing the piano in an effective way. I learned how to listen to myself and how give each note, phrase, and piece the attention and musicality it needed to sound beautifully.

For an adult learner as myself, he was accommodating with how busy I was. He adjusted to my needs and work schedule and taught at a reasonable pace. However, he also never veered from his expectations and praised what I was doing right and provided methods to fix what I was doing wrong.

Although there were times when John expressed his passion for music by delving into tangents on the broader historical significance of pieces, his mini-lectures were never irrelevant nor inappropriate. For example, he commented on how in waltzes, the rhythm on the left hand would need to emulate how a Romantic era string section would play it. For anyone who is serious about how or why pieces of music are meant to be played in a certain way, John is great about contextualizing pieces to make them sound great.

Most importantly, he made practicing piano something that was both enjoyable and challenging, which is difficult to find in a teacher. I owe a great deal of my musicianship to John and he met my expectations of learning the piano. Thank you!
Kenny
John is really great. He takes the time to understand what your goals are and teaches according to your needs. He is patient and provides constructive comments.

Singing!! What's better than singing! Our very own instrument we all have. I was lucky enough to study Bel Canto operatic singing under the mighty Esther Salaman while at Trinity College of Music in London who shared her secrets about sound production with me. These are gems that most people have not explored.
It gives me great pleasure to watch operatic singers transform their experience through sound technique into a flawless, and mostly effortless process. Singing should be focused but free

"Fawn is an amazing music teacher and person. She is a teacher who can handle any student at any level, age or knowledge. She is extremely talented, professional and prepared which is why I would say she is probably the wisest and most knowledgeable vocal teacher I have ever learned from. She will fix your technique FOR SURE! Fawn is patient, kind, funny, motivating and will get you where you want to be in record time! I've reached levels I have never dreamed I could. I look forward to what the coming months hold, and how far she can take me in my operatic endeavors."

8 Beautiful Opera Arias for Beginner Singers

It is always exciting when a vocal student is ready to start studying his or her first operatic aria! One of the best things about being a classical singer is knowing you have so many great years ahead of you. After all, you’re considered in your prime in your 40s. That being said, realize that the voice you have now and the repertoire you’ll first study will be very, very different from what you sing later on in your career. It’s absolutely crucial that you sing repertoire that is …
