Michael Palmisano has worked as a professional musician and guitar instructor for over 15 years. A GIT graduate and Founder and CEO of Guitargate.com, he is the lead guitarist in What's Next, Baltimore's best party band.
Michael has been playing guitar his whole life. What started as a passion at a young age eventually lead to a very fulfilling career in music, and now he's able to make a living sharing his passion for playing!
Short background - he started with private lessons in kindergarten, played in bands throughout middle and high school, and eventually went to Hollywood, CA to formally study at The Musicians Institute (GIT). After GIT, he played professionally in California, then moved back to the east coast teaching private students, coaching rock bands, and playing in local working bands.
From the perspective of a student, working professional, and a teacher, he developed his own dedicated guitar curriculum. Two years ago Michael launched his interactive guitar school Guitargate - think "facebook for guitar lessons" - and It's been fantastic. Now he is truly very excited to be teaching on Of Course! We hope you enjoy learning the guitar as much as he enjoys teaching it!
