About Me:
Learning to play guitar is a challenge, but with lessons it becomes a rewarding lifelong enjoyment. I received my Master's in Music Education from Boston University and my Bachelor's from Berklee College of Music. I have been playing for 26 years and teaching private lessons for 11 years. I teach several styles including Rock, Classical, Jazz, Country and Metal from the beginner to the most advanced. The lessons will help you learn to play guitar by using chord diagrams, theory, charts, examples and exercises, as well as anything you hear on the radio and want to learn.

Ages:
Elementary School, Pre-teen, Teenage, Adult

5 out of 5 Frankie is a great teacher! - December 9, 2009

By DIANE - MELROSE, MA, Guitar Lessons

I took lessons with Frankie this year, and due to the economy had to stop, and I was bummed. I love his approach to starting you out right from the notes and getting you to understand the guitar in all aspects. He has a gentle soul, which helps when you are learning and keep making mistakes! I would highly recommend Frankie for anyone looking to learn or better their playing!
