Craig has taught my 10 year old since Sept. He always looks forward to his lesson with Craig. My son had never played before Sept and every week amazes me with his ability and progress.
I really appreciate Craig's patience and understanding and if I feel I am struggling he has the perfect (positive) solution to help me along (where as before I might give up and go onto something easier). The improvement in my guitar playing is without doubt down to Craig's friendly, flexible and positive approach to teaching and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to learn." More...
Craig has really helped me improve at guitar over the time I have been having lessons, and I always look forward to going. His patience helps with things that are difficult to understand, and because of being taught by him I enjoy playing guitar so much more! More...
"Craig is a brilliant and patient tutor who adapts well to his individual students' musical ability and personality. The studio space is welcoming and comfortable, particularly as I prefer to play whilst sitting on the sofa instead of the chair!"
For me, learning guitar outside of school with Craig has been an incredibly positive experience, and I always look forward to my lessons. Craig is very encouraging and easy to talk to, he is just a really nice guy! Freddy Wilkinson More...
