Frankie Lindia is an LA based guitarist/multi-instrumentalist and music teacher. Starting off at an early age, he knew what he wanted to pursue and made sure to vigorously study his craft.
Early on, Frankie played in school bands playing trumpet, sousaphone, drums and bass until he finally discovered Van Halen and a guitar! From then on out he was strictly devoting his time to studying the 6 strings.
Once reaching High School he formed a couple of bands and played many cover/session gigs. Playing with many people and in many bands including his original band Legal Tender really showed him the ropes about the music business. In no way is it just fun and games or easy but the hard work would pay off if kept.
