About Craig F.

I graduated from UNC-G with Bachelor of Music in Music Education. i studied piano and voice in college and I have taken necessary time to learn the organ and guitar as well.
Teaching since 1984.
Instruments that I teach: piano, voice (singing), guitar, and organ.
The first step is to meet at my home studio and discuss your interest in an instrument.
Sometimes during the meeting, students change their minds. For example, a student wants to play piano initially but switches to voice. You know what? That's OK. Just get started-don't put it off. If you really want to learn anything-you will find a way. It's that simple! I am from Greensboro and firmly established here. I 'm married with two teenagers. I am not going to quit on you! Just get going!


*** Lesson Details ***
I am laid back and patient. People (young and older) take lessons because they want to feel good. I will certainly encourage and guide you along the path. I use the Alfred Prep Course for piano students because it is easy and fun. I utilize other methods in my curriculum, too. You will learn to read music and be able to play piano pieces with both hands, if you consistently practice a little each day.

Young Chang/Pramberger 5' grand piano

My son's improvement got him into WINGATE UNIVERSITY

Craig was fabulous! I set up several lessons for my son in the fall and then again late winter, early spring. Craig's flexibility worked great with our schedule and his expertise and his knowledge really helped my son excel. Craig's focus & concentration on my son's needs during each lesson were exceedingly beneficial. Craig showed full commitment throughout the whole experience. I would highly recommend him as a mentor, advisor and teacher.

Great instructor

Craig is great. He tailors his training to fit your personal needs and goals. He will build upon what you may know already. We is very efficient, encouraging and flexible. I learned so much in such a short time - from basics to fine-tuned personal coaching. Family members noticed dramatic improvement after just two weeks. Would recommend Craig to anyone - old or young.
