He attended the public schools in Jackson, MS. and is a graduate of Forest Hill High School. Frank has taken drum lessons at Richards Music at the age of nine only to learn how to read the drum music and has played in the marching band at both Whitten Middle School and Forest Hill High School. Additionally, he played in the Jazz Band in high school.
Frank White believes that his talent is truly God given. White is currently the drummer for The Andrew's Chapel. He has been playing drums since the age of seven years old. White started playing professionally at the age of ten for my church Victory Metropolitan Full Gospel Baptist Church.
