Teacher's Biography:

Guitar lessons should be a fun and rewarding experience and this is what I aim for in each lesson I teach.

I have been teaching guitar, bass and ukulele since 2000. Throughout this time, I have worked with several different organisations. These include the Derbyshire City and County Music Partnership, Sheffield Music service, HI Gain Guitar school and Harmony Music school.

At present, I still work alongside the Sheffield Music Service as an accredited teacher. This gives me access to professional development courses as well as an enhanced DBS certificate. A recent observation judged my lessons as outstanding.

Through teaching guitar, I have had the pleasure of seeing many of my students grow into well round musicians performing in bands and working in the music industry. Students range from beginner to established players looking to refine their skills. Everyone is welcome, and I teach students from the age of 7 right through to retired people looking for a new challenge.

Through teaching guitar, I have been interviewed for the guitar tutor magazine as well as being featured in the Guitar Techniques magazine.

Aside from teaching I have worked in many bands over my career playing in venues across the country from theatres to clubs and everything in between. One of my claims to fame is performing in front of both Prince William and Prince Harry.

As well as teaching and gigging, I also work for the London College of music as an examiner. For this, I travel around the country conducting exams in Guitar, Bass and Ukulele from the beginner stage right through to diplomas in performance and teaching.

This work has not only seen me travel across the UK but I have also completed 2 exam tours of Australia and New Zealand as well as trips to Greece, Cyprus and Ireland.

“Talented musician! Inspirational! Encouraging! Patient! And above all, the greatest and coolest teacher you’ll ever meet. What else can you ask for? Craig gets 10 stars out of 5! **********” - Monica Martinez

“Craig is an experienced and versatile tutor who has taught me and my brother (bass player) for over 4 years, he teaches in a professional yet informal style, he has helped us both pass grade 8 at distinction and trained us with different styles, techniques and sight reading. As well as time in the ‘classroom’ Craig also has given us both the opportunity to play alongside him/his band in a gig environment. I would strongly recommend Craig’s teaching service to any individual who wishes to learn guitar or bass.” - James Clarke

“I learnt so much so quickly mainly due to Craig’s relaxed style and his ability to change a lesson to match my needs, mood and questions often on the day.”- Paul Bond

4 reviews for Craig Went LLCMTD


The fact that Craig has a great rapport with his pupils is evident at each lesson-and my son really enjoyed his time learning guitar with him. Couple that with the passes at ‘Distinction’ he achieved in each of his exams and I’d be more than happy to recommend Craig as a top-class teacher to any parent looking to ensure their child has a well-structured and enjoyable introduction to music.


Craig plans each lesson specifically for my needs and is very patient and encouraging. So glad to have found him. Highly recommended!


With Craig’s teaching, my 7 year old son went from not knowing how to hold a guitar to passing his first exam with distinction in a few months. Apart from being a talented musician, the combination of Craig’s friendly, fun and patient manner, along with teaching some ‘cool’ music that interests the kids, is a winner.


Craig is a great teacher, as a ‘mature’ student I was concerned about taking up the instrument so late in life but Craig has made it a pleasure. Undoubtedly its challenging at times and frustrating at times but Craig is always supportive and helpful and the problems just seem to evaporate under his tutelage.
Give him a go, you won’t be disappointed.
