Dr. Frankie Price is a passionate professor, guitarist, songwriter, producer, and engineer. His love of music led him to the school of his dreams, Berklee College of Music, where he double-majored in music production and engineering and film scoring with guitar as his principal instrument. At Berklee, he worked as a stage crew supervisor—a highlight of his experience. He also worked in the local concert circuit. He worked security, ran monitors and front of house, and did stage management. He crossed paths with legendary people like The Rolling Stones, Madonna, U2, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Radiohead, Yngwie J. Malmsteen, Tal Wilkenfeld, James Taylor, and Robert Plant.

After graduating, he went to Avatar Studios (now known as The Power Station) in New York City. There, he worked with artists like Dream Theater, Medeski Martin & Wood, and Roberta Flack, among others. While in NYC, he started teaching guitar. One student led to fifty, and enjoying the new direction, he decided to teach full-time. He continued working with independent artists by mixing, mastering, and helping them develop their identity and their songwriting skills.

Dr. Price currently holds positions at Saint Anselm College and the University of New Hampshire, in addition to Berklee. He has taught, developed, and written multiple undergraduate and graduate classes while creating a music program for the country of Jordan to use in their school system.

In Their Own Words

"After a master's and a doctorate in music education from Boston University, my dissertation "Experience, Technology, and Curriculum for Today's Online Instrumental Educator" helped me to understand the importance of curriculum design and changed how I approached teaching and the classroom."
