Frank began his study of the Guitar at the Spanish Guitar Centre, London. Later he studied at the Guildhall School of Music and individually with the world renowned Classical guitarist Julian Byzantine. Frank has played for musical productions including Les Miserables, Grease, The Wiz, The Hot Mikado and Chorus Line, and was requested to play Classical Guitar music for Stephen Hawking and his family and friends at a special event held in St.Albans School, broadcast by Channel 4 television. He has played at a number of weddings held in St. Albans Cathedral and he is in demand for special occasions held at St. Michaels Manor Hotel. Frank currently teaches the Guitar for the Hertfordshire County Music Service.
David has been performing, writing and teaching professionally since leaving the Royal Academy of Music, where he won the Julian Bream Guitar Prize. His teaching series, The Guitarist’s Progress published by Garden Music is now established as one of the most popular and thorough introductions to the guitar. In addition to the many books in that series he has had much of his guitar music published by, among others, BBC, EMI and OUP. He has been elected an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music (ARAM) by its Governing Body. In 2006 one of his pupils, David Massey, became only the second guitarist to win the String Section and reach the Final of the BBC Young Musician of the Year.
“Dear Frank, Thank you very much for playing for us last week at our end of year supper party. There was a lot of positive feedback from those who attended and enjoyed the music. With best wishes, Yours sincerely, Diana Rose” – Secretary, Council of Christians and Jews, St Albans Branch
