String Theory With Craig
I offer personalized instruction to all of my students based upon their goals, musical tastes, and ability. I have been a professional performing artist and instructor for many years and am extremely comfortable in all genres of popular music.
My greatest sense of enjoyment is when I see the excitement in a student's eyes when they nail a certain skill. Learning guitar is not easy, especially in the early stages, and is is very satisfying when my students reach a new goal.
The other thing I really enjoy is that my students have a wide range of age, backgrounds and likes and it is constantly exposes me to new and interesting material.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
My first meeting with a new student involves ascertaining their skill level, their long and short term goals and what type of music interests them. I also review how I go about my teaching approach and what the student needs to do in order to make it all work.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been playing guitar for over 50 years and have learned a great deal on knowledge regarding technique and theory by my own study. I also had the role of Training Manager in a large hospitality company for a number of years. Successful instruction, not only, involves actual playing skills and knowledge, it also takes preparation, organization, the ability to actually listen to my students and gain their feedback.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
My fee is $35.00 per lesson at my home studio. There is an adfditional $10.00 if I am traveling to the students location. That covers a 60 minute lesson, all printed and e-mailed material, and telephone or e-mail support in between lessons.
