My name is Frankie Price.
I am a teacher/guitarist/composer/songwriter that loves music.
Even the analytical aspect of theory.
My first degree was in Biology from West Virginia University. It was a great school, but I ended up in a field that was not for me.
I wanted to play the guitar!
After teaching in New York City for almost three years, I realized I really liked what I was doing.
I earned a Masters of Music (Music Ed.), and I’m currently completing my 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 and be a supplement for students.
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 let me know if you have any questions or suggestions for new lesson ideas.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you and enjoy!
