I utilize a Music from Mind technique to connect the student cerebrally (interval training, theoretical skills) and kinesthetically (proper fingerings, physical technique etc) to the piano for purposes of creative composition or improvisation.

Most of my piano development has been through the study of Jazz (theory, improv, harmony,lead sheets) but lessons can be personalized based on individual objectives (scale rudiments, sight reading, playing "by ear", expanding sound palette) established beforehand. I enjoy delineating structure and giving the student non musical analogies to help aid in their understanding of how and why music "works".

Franklin has given me much to think about as we've explored Jazz harmonic Concepts in our lessons also he is an inspiring player but I have to ask him to slow down while he spoke at times

frank is an excellent teacher...
he has been teaching my daughter since she was 2 years old & is now 8 years old...
we adore her time with him as he is helping her learn the entire musical language that the piano as an instrument holds...
they are currently using a bach piece as the next key in unlocking all of the piano’s secrets...
frank is a very well educated/learned as well as a proficient player/composer of music...
& has an excellent & professional ‘piano-side-manner’...
he also let us have a test lesson to make sure we were a good fit all around...
we sincerely hope & highly recommend that you enlist his skills
