The syllabus and the schedule are completed along with a comprehensive strategy for what will take place during class. lessons include: physical pre warm ups, breathing exercises, vocal warm-up exercises and technical work, solfeggio (sight-singing), ear training, repertoire musical coaching , speech coaching, preparation for auditions and performances.

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!

"Great teacher. Been learning guitar from Andrew on an off for years. It's great to have an instructor who was /is a touring pro who can lead you in the right direction with music theory, instrument instruction as well as stagecraft. In addition to mandolin/guitar and harmonica, there are many unwritten codes and tricks that only a battle tested touring musician is able to pass on if you are looking to get out there and play with other musicians at the any level."
