My name is Frank Schumm, welcome to my website! Here you can see what projects im doing and listen to several recordings. Feel free to look around and if you have questions, I’m always prepared to answer.
Frank Schumm (1994) is a young and talented guitarist from Rotterdam. As a little 7 year old boy he started playing classical music, but later turned towards the Argentine tango. In 2018 he graduated from Codarts conservatory in Rotterdam, and now he works as a professional musician and music teacher. Apart from classical and tango music, he has a wide interest in various music styles, including jazz, gypsy jazz, Brazilian choro, rebetiko, fado and Argentine folklore music.
Trio Fraguro is an ensemble of three guys who met at the Codarts Conservatory. Although they all specialized in tango music, in this setting they play music from all over the world. They can play everything from relaxed jazz standards in the background, to upbeat Irish reels and jigs and swinging gypsy jazz. They are always open for requests, so if you would like your favourite ballad played on a party that won’t be a problem.
It’s also possible to get private guitar lessons with Frank. This can be lessons for children (above 7) and adults, from beginner to semi-professional. You can get lessons in classical, latin and tango music with the option to focus on improvisation. In the lesson it’s important to enjoy the instrument and feel comfortable with the level you start at. If you need help with finding a guitar suitable for your level Frank can help you with that.
Guitar lessons are possible at home in and around Rotterdam, or at the VAK music school in Delft. In Rotterdam the introduction lessons are always half price. The recommended lesson time for kids is 30 minutes and for adults 45-60 minutes.
