Music Schools:
Frank is a graduate of the Boston Conservatory of Music where he received his Bachelor of Science in Music Education in 1976.

He stayed at the Conservatory two more years taking every singing course he'd missed studying education. During this time he performed with the Conservatory Chorale on a tour of Germany and Austria.

Frank received his Master of Music in Vocal Performance in 1986 from the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque.

More important than all those degrees, Frank has PRACTICED every day for the past 55 years!

Choral Music:
In Boston Frank sang tenor under Alfred Nash Patterson at the Old South Church (1975-76), and countertenor under Thomas Murray at St. Paul's Cathedral (1976-80). He performed as Tenor Soloist under Dennis Schmidt with the St. John's Cathedral choir in Albuquerque (1983-89).

From 1983 through 1996 Frank served as Music Director for Los Altos Christian Church. Since 1985 he has been Conductor of The Hightoners, a chorus at the Highland Senior Center. And since the autumn of 1999, Frank is the Director of the Enchanters, a 24-voice group that has been singing in Albuquerque for over forty years!

Frank teaches private lessons in voice, piano, conducting and music theory. He's working with students of all ages, experience levels and musical interests. Frank offers a free lesson to all first-time students. After that a half hour is $25. An hour lesson is currently $50. Times are available on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
