I’m Craig Rockett, welcome to my website and thanks for visiting! I am a guitarist, composer and RGT (Registry of Guitar Tutors) registered guitar teacher based in Basingstoke, Hampshire.
I started out playing lead guitar for a band covering classic rock songs, with whom I played all over Basingstoke. The experience I gained from this time gave me the desire to teach other people to play. I have taught people who had never played guitar, all the way up to those who were already very competent but wanted to learn even more – and everywhere in between!
Lessons cost £20 for a 1hour session. The cost of a lesson gets you 1 to 1 tailored to you tuition, top quality lesson materials (which you can take away and keep) and it also gets you email support between lessons. For maximum progression I would suggest having a lesson every week, however students wishing to take lessons on a fortnightly basis are also more than welcome.
Whether you are a beginner or you’ve been playing a while and would like to get to the next level, you’re an electric guitarist, an acoustic guitarist, interested in playing rock, blues, metal, pop or anything in between get in touch.
All lessons are taught from my home studio in Brighton Hill. The studio is equipped with everything you need for an enjoyable and productive guitar lesson. Below you can see for yourself what an excellent environment it is for learning and get an idea of what’s at your disposal as a student of mine
I offer a free 30minute taster session for all new students. This will give new guitarists a flavour of what is involved in learning the instrument. For those who already play it will give an opportunity to have a look at what you do and don’t know, and plot out your individual learning path so that when you begin paid lessons I will already have an idea of how to get you where you would like to be as a guitarist.
All you need to bring with you to your guitar lesson is a guitar. If you don’t have one when you start, you are welcome to use one of mine until you have one of your own. Amplification, effects pedals, software and learning material are all supplied.
Please don’t hesitate to get in contact if you would like lessons. I can be contacted via email on firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would rather have a conversation on the phone, drop me an email and I’ll send you my phone number.
