Carlier's School of Guitar & Music

Guitar lessons, Bass lessons, Mandolin lessons and retail instruments in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.

Carlier's School of Guitar and Music is located in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. Frank Carlier is an instructor as well as an accomplished musician. His passion is teaching and he is considered one of South Carolina's finest guitar teachers, having taught thousands of students from beginner to amateur to professional. [Edwin McCain, Working Title, David Lee of the Shack Shakers] Frank still performs on a somewhat limited basis with The Frank Carlier Band and has performed at Spoleto. He has also been a featured artist with the Charleston Symphony four times. His recordings [which he calls his hobby] have had World-Wide airplay. Carlier’s School of Guitar and Music takes a different approach to music instruction than any other teaching facility in the Charleston area, "Music Instruction always comes first." The retail space is private, open to students and by appointment. Individual teaching plans are created for each student based on their needs and assessment. All styles and methods are taught with our primary specialties of Guitar, Bass, Mandolin and Music Theory but we do have outside referrals for other instruments. Call about prices, lesson plans and schedules or to make a time to stop by and visit.

[08/03/16]   Well it was Aug 3rd 1977 that I first set foot in Charleston.39 years ago. Much has changed. I was 23 married and working in the USN Submarine force. It was quite a shock coming from a town with 2000 people and no stop light. After an honorable discharge I decided to stay here and beat out a life musically. Much has changed since those "Days of High Adventure". I guess the main thing it seems the Heart of the Musical Scene has been removed from the Heart of the City . The Market Area was vibrant. You could be on break and just go see another band for a bit. Myskyns was the main hang for musicians. And why not? You could see Eric Johnson, The Dregs, Chuck Leaveall Randall Brablett and so many others. I think the reason the musicians in town were so talented is we all got humbled when we walked in those doors. But things do change. We have lost a bunch of fine players. The loss of Eddie Hogan was a great blow to me. But I wanted to take the time and thank all of you I have shared a stage with, a drink, a wild story [lie or truth] and a laugh. As well as my students. .It has been a great ride even though we.... the players from that era are getting a bit long in the tooth as they say. I toast to our "Glory Days' They will always be there in our own hearts.

Bridget's Tune

In the early and mid 90's I played locally and through out the South East in a band called the "Blue Wave". I posted a couple songs of ours in honor of a couple good friends I have lost recently.

John Jersild: A great friend and the best club owner I ever worked for.

And Eddie Hogan. Put simply...... the Best and the Greatest... period. He was an icon in the Charleston music scene and will never be replaced nor the likes ever seen again.
