My name is Frankie Price.
I am a teacher/guitarist/composer/songwriter that loves music and the guitar along with the analytical aspect of music and theory.
My first degree was in Biology from West Virginia University. It was a great school, but as a result of youthful ignorance, I ended up in a field that was not for me. So, one day I decided to walk away from it all and play my guitar every day for the rest of my life.
I went back to school and graduated from Berklee College of Music with a degree in Music Production & Engineering. After working in New York City for almost three years as a guitar teacher, I realized that I liked what I was doing. So, I earned a Master of Music Degree in Music Education, and since I’m one never to quit until I finish the job, I chose to complete my education with a Doctorate in Music Education from Boston University. I’m still working on that one, but I’m close.
I have been playing for over 30 years and teaching private lessons for almost 20.
This website is a way to introduce myself in addition to acting as a supplement for any students, mine or elsewhere. I teach and play many instruments including, but not limited to:
Guitar, Woodwinds, Piano,
Banjo, Ukulele, Mandolin,
Theory, Songwriting, and Composition
I am a Professional Instructor that has the ability and resources to help you with several styles ranging from Rock to Classical to Jazz to Country to Metal. In other words, anything you want to learn I can teach by using the songs and exercises necessary to help you become a real musician.
In my lessons, I teach songwriting and harmony to my students, but the standard tonal approach has too many loopholes and exceptions. However, to bend or even break the rules, you need to learn the rules.
I explore as many circumstances possible to make music enjoyable to my students. I try to teach music in a way that brings out the most in my students. The more I can help them understand the musical configurations rather than the “it sounds good” notion, the better songwriters and musicians they will become. Learning to play any style of music is a challenge, but with help from an experienced teacher, your instrument becomes a rewarding lifelong enjoyment.
Here you will find various handouts and reference materials that I hope will help you on your musical journey.
Please feel free to ask for more or to offer suggestions about anything that I can add.
I hope these exercises help.
Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions or suggestions for new lesson ideas.
I look forward to jamming with you.
Thank you, enjoy, and Rock On!
