Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I work on the foundations of good playing technique and musical knowledge through a close study of music that interests the student. As a guitarist, I've played and worked with students on Bach sonatas, Dylan/Donovan style fingerpicking, jazz comping and solos, rock, metal and punk riffs, Steve Vai-esque two-hand tapping, as well as songwriting, music theory, and aural skills, so no matter what kind of music you like or how you're looking to improve, chances are I can help take you do it. All levels and ages are welcome.

About Brendon

I am a composer, guitarist, arranger, engraver, and songwriter located in Brooklyn. I have taught extensively for the past ten years in a variety of settings, including teaching private guitar lessons at Saint David's School in Manhattan, teaching private composition lessons and TA'ing two electro

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

My goal as a teacher is to give you the facility to express yourself through music. The key parts to developing this facility are:

1. theory -- if you know your theory, you know the best way to express your idea without having to think about it
2. technique -- the last thing you want is for your technique to hinder your ability to express your idea. Having good technique lets your ideas flow naturally

When you take lessons with me, you get out of it what you put in. Your job as student is to be honest with what you expect to achieve and my job as teacher is to give you the tools to achieve it

About David

I am a bass player first, not a guitarist who also teaches bass. Students will learn technique, theory and groove from a teacher who understands that as bass players, we are in a unique position. Since bass is both a harmony and rhythm instrument we have the opportunity to develop into leaders in

David was very patient and thorough with the introductory lesson. He corrected some basic habits my son had and had him sounding better in 10 minutes.

He also had practical recommendations for daily practice.

I highly recommend David.
Chris H.
David went over basic music theory and rhythm with me, and corrected some technique issues. He explained things clearly and when we put some of it into practice in the final minutes I saw instant results. Absolutely excited to do my homework and for my next lesson.
Robert F.
As a beginning, self-taught bass player of four months, I wanted to find a teacher who could analyze and critique my playing. I scheduled five lessons with David over a time period of three months. David was instrumental in analyzing and critiquing bad techniques and habits I acquired. He very thoroughly emphasized proper fretting technique and finger positioning; exercises were given that helped me obtain full tonal quality and efficient fretboard navigation skills. We also reviewed basic theory, scale modes, rhythmic weight, pentatonics and arpeggios; seminal knowledge for the beginner.

A technical type player, David has excellent playing skills as well as a comprehensive knowledge of theory and its practical application. He is a good listener and showed a genuine interest in helping me achieve my goals. I definitely can see an improvement in my playing skills....playing more confidently and efficiently.

Highly recommended.......

Beginner-
We will go straight into learning chords & Rhythm and how to play those chords "clean" (sounding properly) and in "time" (the musical tempo of music). From there you will learn to play groups of chords one after another and how it will teach you to create your own music and also show you how certain groups of chords you learn to play are in the music you are already listen to. After that we will learn to develop your listening ear to hear a song and how to "play by ear" and read chord charts.

Intermediate: You will learn how to play one chord many different ways on the guitar. This is called "voicings." You will then learn the many voicing of all the guitar chords. You will learn different rhythms, and odd time. You will also learn extended chords and the theory behind them. Know the difference between A6/9 A9 Amaj9? That's what you'll learn. You will learn all the scales and how to solo. Plus Modes and how you can playing them when playing over a chord progression.

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!

"Steven has been amazing!! I have little to no experience playing guitar, but I'm already getting the hang of playing well known songs! He does a great job of critiquing but also making the lesson fun! He tells me exactly what I need to do and the tools I need for the following lessons, so I always have a plan AND it's all in the comfort of my own home.
