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!

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.

Our first lesson together was so much fun! Daniel is easy to talk to, very knowledgeable, and seems ready to challenge me to grow musically. I’m looking forward to the lessons ahead!

I've been playing guitar on and off (mostly off) for the past 15 years. I came to Daniel to learn music theory, improve my rhythm, and learn the skills I need to confidently show up to a jam session with other musicians. In just a few lessons, I've significantly improved in each of those areas at Daniel's instruction. He REALLY knows his stuff and quickly hones in on your strengths/weaknesses and has great advice for how to improve on your weaknesses.

If you are looking for a guy that can teach you the basics of how to play an instrument, or someone that can take you from just learning songs online to being able to create your own songs and jam with other musicians, Daniel is your guy.

The ukulele is a fun, low-pressure instrument with more potential for great musicality than may first meet the eye. The learning curve is low and the rewards are high with the ukulele. You can learn 50% of your favorite songs within the first month. It's a great portable party trick and a lovely instrument to work towards mastering.

I was a bit nervous with my first lesson but Lucciana's bubbly personality put me at ease. I like her teaching style because she actually asked me for what I wanted to get out of the lessons that I am taking, and that is great!, She is gearing the lessons to my benefits that would allow me learn the things I really want to learn. We started out with the principles, which is something I want. I believe that having the principle basic of music would benefit me in the long run and allow me to learn how to play my ukulele and learn how to play many of the songs I enjoy.

All the utube lessons were useless for me. I realized this after 1 lesson with Ian. The frustration factor on utube was a waste of time for me. I am so happy I chose ian & this company.
