As a guitarist, composer, and educator, music has always been at the heart of life. I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a BM in Jazz Composition and recently graduated from NYU with a MM in Jazz Studies, where I also taught as an adjunct guitar instructor.

Currently based in New York, I teach guitar and general music at a number of institutions including Harlem School of Arts, The Brooklyn Waldorf School, The Winchendin School, and the New York Jazz Academy.

In addition to teaching, I'm a freelance guitar player and have performed with a wide range of artists, some of which include Chris Potter and Micah Stampley, as well as with my own trio.

Franklin is a fantastic teacher of jazz guitar who my son loves. They worked together all last year and my son made great progress and they will work together again this year. Franklin is very personable, reliable and also flexible. Highly recommend.


Lesson Details

Electric Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

The main goal of my lessons is for my students to genuinely enjoy the guitar and to walk away excited to put their knowledge into action. As someone who has been studying the guitar for 15+ years, I know the challenges of practicing and moving beyond the technical knowledge of the instrument. I help my students learn using their personal musical interests and inspirations. All ages and abilities welcome.
