Music For Everyone

Frank Green opened his first music retail store in Southern California in 1959 and called it Music For Everyone. He began working in the music industry some 12 years earlier as student enroller in an accordion school. He soon became a teacher for the school and a manager before deciding to open his own store. Frank spent time as a rep for Pacific Music and Music Man for which he wrote a book. In fact, Frank helped archive the industry’s history in recent years with several books about his career in music and by donating a full album of photographs he took of his dealers over the years for the NAMM Resource Center.  He was a music advocate's advocate!  He never slowed down or tired of telling all he could about the benifits of music making.
