First lesson with Benjamin was great - would definitely recommend him.

Great instructor! Very patient and knowledgeable. Great choice for anyone wanting to learn or just improve their guitar playing.
Keith M.
I must say that Benjamin was great. I come from no musical background and had zero knowledge. Benjamin made me feel relaxed and broke down the sessions in an easy way so that I could understand the concept of what we were trying to accomplish. I look forward to future lessons and learning how to play the guitar

Nathan is kind and encouraging. My son is enjoying the lessons and making progress towards playing tapas and reveille. He sounds good!! Online classes are convenient to add into a busy schedule.

This is the first lesson I got to listen to of my son working with Nathan. Usually I'm not home from work. I am really impressed with how much he was able to help my son improve so quickly. I wish we had started this much sooner.

Private Music Theory Teacher

As a Classically trained vocalist, I have come to understand that the art of creating music is aided immensely by a strong understanding of music theory. My primary objective in teaching theory is to inspire students to become self-motivated musicians with the desire to want to know how and why music functions. Of course, theory is a means to an end, and whether writing or performing is the students goal, I am hear to help!

At the start of each semester I set clear and reachable course goals that instill in my students a curiosity for knowledge and experience. Together, we will work from the ground up, building a strong theoretical foundation. For younger students, I like to keep my students engaged with fun singing, drawing, and coloring activities that keep learning fun. Through worksheets, written examples, and recordings I will build an individualized lesson plan for each student that meets his or her needs.

Kasey has been working with my daughter for 3 years now. I have watched my daughter gain confidence while making tremendous progress. Kasey is organized, caring and confident in her teaching. My daughter respects Kasey and enjoys going to her weekly lessons. I highly recommend Kasey as a voice teacher
Sheila
Kasey is a wonderful teacher. Before taking lessons with Kasey I had to stop singing for more than 5 years due to illness. She was amazing at safely bringing me back to vocal health. I am now able to sing light opera and folk songs even better than I used to. I am impressed with her level of knowledge and she really motivates me to work hard at my craft. She is truly the best teacher that I have ever had and would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to be the best singer that they can be.

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!

Knowledge of theory and harmony is an important part of music creation and performance. From beginners to advanced, Joseph teaches theory and harmony, together with ear training.

About Joseph

Joseph N. has a unique, versatile taste in music that imbues the astounding breadth of his artistic endeavors. A phenomenally simple man with an exceptionally inventive mind, Joseph stands as a hallmark of perfection for many aspiring and established performers, conductors, and composers across the

Jacob Voronin
Joseph is a very gifted person, it's hard to find someone who has an ocean of musical ideas in his or her heart. He is not just a professional in his work, he is a true composer. Thus it is more than creativity, he is not simply putting together known material, he's creating his own, and he does it in a professional way. It never gets boring to work with him, I always look forward for his flesh ideas and new way to interpret music.
Kristina
I have had many piano teachers before I came to Joseph. Since then, in his private lessons we've covered scales, learned classical pieces, choir songs, accompaniment for hymns and how to play by ear.
I love how much he cares for each of his students and wants each lesson to be valuable. The passion for teaching is seen in him, and as a current student of his, I could say that he has built plethora of skills in me, so that I can use that knowledge to serve God, persevere, and carry on that education to the generation after me.
He has a lot of experience teaching piano and a big background in music. It's a blessing to be a student of a talented teacher, composer, and conductor, who is also highly respected, inspirational and caring.
Elijah Cosovan
I have been taking theory/harmony lessons with Mr. Joseph Nikita for 4 years now and couldn't be any more satisfied with his teaching style.
Mr. Nikita takes the complex concepts of music harmony and breaks them down to the point where they become easy to understand, retain, and apply to my homework and compositions.
One thing I much admire in Mr. Nikita's teaching is the variability in his explanations. I don't prefer learning in a lecture-style environment (where the teacher lectures and the student takes notes), so Mr. Nikita takes each topic and explains it in multiple ways - using real-life applications and examples. This helps me obtain a clear understanding of each lesson - making it easy to go in depth in music harmony.

"By far the best teacher I have ever had. Paul makes lessons engaging, and his wealth of knowledge never comes off as elitist. He explains complicated theory in a practical way for anyone to understand. If I wasn't leaving Chicago I would have signed up for ten more lessons. Ask him about the own music he makes with his band. He's a super talented guy!!!"

"Great teacher. He was my music theory tutor, and I was able to skip past two college theory courses within about a week of hour-long tutoring sessions.

From my experience, he works with what you have: he finds your strengths and helps you to learn based on how he believes you'll best receive new information or inspiration. He is able to communicate concepts in many different ways, and always makes sure you understand. He is not long-winded, but communicates the necessary information in a way that is straight-to-the-point, and does not waste time giving his students "busy work," but instead gives them exercises that are directly or indirectly helpful every time. He is a patient teacher, and does not make you feel like you will be left behind. He passionate about teaching and his students, and he does a great job at teaching."
