The "Real World" style. Chords - Riffs - Scales - Songs - Basic Theory - Tabs - which can branch out into song writing and recording techniques. I start out with the basics and then focus on switching - getting your fingers moving/stretching - getting them ready for scales and songs. Different patterns and techniques of picking and strumming. Understanding timing and attention to movement. I don't teach traditional guitar musical notes with staff reading. Guitar Tabs I will teach you and easy exercises. For advanced beginners to intermediate I can proceed with what you need help with next by hearing your goals and what you'd like to cover whether it's more techniques - chords - playing style - song writing - techniques for studio playing.

I'm a rock recording artist that has been doing music full time for 10 years opening for national artists, playing gigs and recording here in Upstate NY. I'm an easy going instructor teaching the "real world" way of learning acoustic or electric guitar. I teach from my home studio or online where I have clients recording and teaching wise. It's a smoke free - pet free - alcohol free zone.

About Frank P.

Nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for music! Each student progresses at his or her own pace and there is nothin wrong with that. Going over somethin again and really focusing in on it is not a bad thing. Focus is also key with a student. Acknowledging accomplishments helps fuel a students desire to progress, and makes students eager to learn more. I stay personable and positive with my lessons and inspired by a recording type studio environment. Thank you very much. Hope to hear from you.

Throughout my life working with various industry producers and members of signed acts, I've learned so much with experience. I'm personally big with studying how people play with my eyes and then learning by hear for the feel. It's the passion that starts first as I say and that I want to pass along to students hungry to learn. Practice is key for anyone and I recommend at least 20-30mins a day up to 3 hours. I hope I can be a positive inspiration with someone who is following their dreams. I've taken some lessons when I was younger and a bit of college school courses. I play acoustic guitar, electric, bass, drums and sing.

Frank Palangi an indie rock recording artist freshly homegrown from Upstate New York who reignites the fuel on the genre that refuses to die. Whether it's raw acoustic sets or the driving electric guitar, his gravelly, deep n gritty, vibrato voice delivers across the room. With no looking back, leaving it all on the stage, his positive outlook is one doesn't give up no matter however long it takes. "I have no plan b in backing down on my dreams." Finding the passion for music and production from the age of 13, he self taught guitar, bass, drums, recording, mixing with a style that tips the hat on the past 30 year evolution of the 80s & 90s rock & post grunge movement mixed with the taste of heavy metal. "I was a shy kid with health issues growing up so no sports and I turned to creative outlets instead. Learning from those past decades I wasn't going for the typical drinking, smashing hotel rooms as the rocker lifestyle is known for. It could be more about the music, the fans, and the drive to grow that draws you in and of course that rock n roll rebel yell feeling to stand up for yourself ." -FP
