His bands have opened and/or toured with the likes of Dee Dee Ramone, Blink 182, Green Day, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Jimmy Eat World, Ten Foot Pole, The Dickies, Big Drill Car, and Leeland. Frank was a Music Director for 4 years along with leading worship for the past 25 years.

Fast forward, Frank has been teaching guitar classes along with Private lessons for many years along with creating a student base all over the country teaching Skype lessons. Franks name became known in the Homeschool Community in Riverside County and Orange County. Frank was approached to put his music program throughout 4 different counties and that is how
"Buzzy Mae Music Academy" was born. Frank is honored and has been able to offer many different music classes from TK- High School that run all year long. We have developed a team of instructors that either have a music degree or has taught many years in their field that bring a professional level of instruction to our students.

We have known Frank Velasquez for several years now. I have many friends who’s children have been taking music lessons with him and absolutely love their time with him. I was THRILLED when our daughter said she wanted to take ukulele because now I was able to contact Frank about lessons for our daughter. Natalee looks forward to her lessons with Frank! She loves how patient he is and feels so happy when she is there. Frank, your a gem! Thank you for all you do for your students and making them feel so valued.
Our son has been taking lessons from Frank for more than 5 years. Our experience with Frank has been consistent, pleasant and we have recommended his services to our friends and family. Frank and Valerie have been wonderful. We have witnessed my son develop a passion for music and the love of guitar playing. Frank played a direct role in helping cultivate a growth mindset towards music. Frank is patient, kickback, and positive. The environment is chill and fun, we have seen that the students look forward to and enjoy their lessons. It is our pleasure and an honor to recommend Frank. Tony and Deana Arellano
We have been with Buzzy Mae for over 10 years. My students have enjoyed lessons in acoustic guitar, electric guitar, ukulele, voice, and Rock Ensemble. Mr. Frank is the perfect music teacher—Not only is he a wonder with music, but he has a wonderful way with kids and a gift for breaking things down so students of any age understand. My kids have blossomed under his encouragement and instruction. We’re looking forward to another great year with Buzzy Mae Music Academy!

We also want to use you next year and would love to get on a list for Nate again for fall. She either wants to continue piano or vocal or both. Can can we get on a list for Nate by any chance? We already let her teacher know we are signing up for fall with you guys. Thank you!!
It has been 2 years since my daughter started taking guitar lessons with Frank and I have been amazed of how much she has learned. Frank is a great teacher and has so much patience with the kids while also making it fun. I would definitely recommend Buzzy Mae Music lessons to other families.
Our academy recitals is a wonderful opportunity for students to work toward positive and meaningful goal and celebrate their musical accomplishment with friends and family.
