Frank received his Mus.B. in 1950 and his Mus.M. in 1951, both from the University of Southern California. He was a composer, conductor, arranger, and author. He also lectured at the University of California at Los Angeles (1958) and was professor of music at San Jose State University. In 1995 he established Frank Erickson Publications. Over the last 50+ years his compositions have become standards of the school band repertoire, and his book Arranging for the Concert Band had served as a guide for many college music majors.
