Music - Instrumental Performance

Each of us are responsible for our own progress and growth. Teachers help tremendously, but students must practice and apply what they've been taught by great faculty.

A South Jersey native, and woodwind player “Peter Frank is a shining example of the versatile, modern saxophonist that UArts strives to produce,” says University of the Arts School of Music Director, Micah Jones. Proficient on all saxophones, clarinet, and flute, Peter is already performing and making a name for himself on the Philadelphia professional musical theater scene. In December of 2015, Peter played in a production of “The Three Maries” at the Prince Theater. Other shows Peter has played in include “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” “Company,” “Something Wicked This Way Comes,” “Anything Goes,” “Peter Pan,” “Singin' In The Rain” and “Sister Act.”

According to Peter, the best thing about Philadelphia's music scene is that it provides opportunities for aspiring musicians. He says some cities lack a middle ground for musicians and instead have two extremes: professional orchestra or community band.
