« As a professional vocalist, song-writer, and music educator, myself, I’ve had the wonderful experience of knowing and working with Dr. Frank for over 30 years. We met when we both were students of the legendary bassist, Al Stauffer. He's an outstanding musician, master guitarist, composer-arranger, and educator. He’s studied with some of the top music educators in the greater Philadelphia area and he’s extremely knowledgeable about music – both in theory and technique, as well as performance. Although Dr. Frank is known by many as a Jazz guitarist, his talents in a variety of musical genres have made him an “in-demand” musician. Not all great musicians make great educators, but Dr. Frank is an exceptional teacher. He has the ability, patience, passion and experience to know what his students need to continue to develop their skills and achieve their musical goals. He’s friendly and funny and is well-respected by other professionals, as well as his students. Any student will be lucky to have him as a music teacher, and any school will benefit to have him as a colleague! Wendy Simon »

Dr. Frank is part of the long lineage of performing and teaching Jazz - everything from accompaniment, improvising, composing, arranging. I enjoyed playing with him for about 3 years while we lived in the Allentown area, and as a sideman, I thoroughly enjoyed learning from his ideas, his responsiveness, and overall artistic approach to learning formally and organically. Aside from that, the time spent with him off-the instruments, provided the window into his vast playing experiences (from being in Sinatra's band, playing behind comedians in Atlantic City, and just being a part of that vibrant time of jazz development). Highly recommend him as an instructor.

I've known Frank over forty years. He is a wonderful musician. I was a guitar student of Frank when I was younger, and not at all the player I am now. He gave me the framework to facilitate my ideas. Frank led me down the path of musical righteousness.

Dr. Frank is one of the most knowledgeable musicians I have ever met. He not only comes with an impeccable résumé but he is also very kind and patient and very skilled at instructing students. I have been learning some jazz music with him as a complete novice and he has been absolutely wonderful to work with . He has an excellent reputation and I would recommend him very highly.

Norman

I've known Frank since 1975- we both studied with a few of the same teachers. Frank was an inspiration to me then, and he still is. He knows the music and the guitar cold, but equally important, he has a big heart. His enthusiasm and knowledge are very motivating.

Larry

I had the pleasure of working with FranK on the faculty of Moravian College in the Jazz Department, and playing with him in the faculty Jazz Quartet. Along with being a master guitarist, he has a strong knowledge of all music across the board, in both theory and practice. He can treat his students as friends, but with complete honesty and a congenial sense of humor. In short, he is a terrific teacher.

Laura

We have known Dr Frank for many years through friendship and now he's one of the family. A world-class master guitarist who has incredible knowledge and is an amazing teacher. Our son has been taking lessons for a short time. The training he has received in a few years equals the knowledge of a much more advanced player. Our son can see the value in every minute shared during each lesson. We are so grateful to have Dr Frank as our son's mentor. I would recommend him to anyone who's considering learning guitar. He is kind, patient, and an all around great guy!!

David

Most qualified, patient, truly gifted teacher. I'd trust that anyone who goes to Frank for lessons will come out much more skilled.

Legitimately the most impactful teacher I have ever had. Dr. D’s musical history and resume speaks for itself. He is a class act and truly as good as it gets. You will learn from real life experience that he has had with all of the greats.

Phil

I’ve known Frank since we were teenagers, we both love music and Jazz! We use to listen to jazz and try and guess who the players were ( we got real good at that) ! Frank’s been one of the top jazz guitarist in Philly since the 70s. I’ve always been impressed with his dedication and musical knowledge. He been teaching for years and some of his students are playing professionally! What more can I say!
