LessonsWe, at BugByte, believe music is for everyone, not just the professionals. Music is part of the fabric of humanity and is an instinct that when encouraged, enriches both the individual and scholarship their. If properly massaged, this instinct can often be refined to levels that touch the hearts of audiences beyond our living rooms and backyards and into professional art world for the masses. Francesca has been teaching all levels of clients for 17 years. Her clients have gone on to perform for the Oscars, in Carnegie Hall, they have gone on to win Emmy’s and been involved in many Grammy Award winning projects. With a passion for giving back, Francesca continually keeps space in her studio for children and serious hobbyists. With an effort to reach out to her community, Francesca has opened BugByte School of Music where she mentors young teachers and directs group lessons. BugByte School of Music focuses on children music education for kids 0-17. We are rolling out our one for one village program, opening up scholarships for kids in our community. The school also affords Francesca the opportunity to mentor aspiring music teachers coming from within her private studio. In addition to in-person lessons, Francesca is also available for private and group lessons online. A classically trained multi instrumentalist, Francesca is most highly regarded as an artist development expert and coach. What does that mean?! Well… did you know that the vast majority of professional musicians primary instruments are not the instruments they started on? Guitar players become drummers, bass players become guitar players, singers become piano players and piano players become songwriters. Music has many levels and art has unlimited possibilities. An artist development expert, develops the artist, not just the instrument. Francesca’s students learn that music is a language that can be expressed in ways they had never imagined. CSULA alumnae, and accomplished recording artist, Francesca shares her skills and experience with as many people as she can in a day, bringing her love and obsession for her craft to every situation. From classrooms, to concert halls, in studios and recordings, Francesca feels at home in most any musical setting.
