Craig Winston is a guitar teacher in Denver. He holds a Master of Music degree in Classical Guitar Performance. Take guitar lessons with a master guitarist in-person and online and study a variety of styles: Classical Guitar, Jazz Guitar, Rock and Metal Guitar.
"Music is an exciting, lifelong odyssey. The core strength of every student is that initial spark that inspires the journey."
I began playing guitar because I loved the kinetic energy of heavy metal music. Every student begins their study for similar reasons. I aim to cultivate your excitement for music and help you journey even further beyond.
I hold a Master of Music degree in Classical Guitar Performance from the Lamont School of Music at University of Denver. I perform a variety of music from classical to jazz, rock and metal to musical theater. I have a wealth of experience and expertise to help my students succeed, no matter their goal.
Guitar lessons will be personalized to your goals. I have students studying classical guitar and others learning classic rock, metal, jazz, even songwriting. I'm thrilled when my students find the confidence to join bands, perform at open mics, or audition for music school.
I'm excited to learn more about your musical interests! New Students please fill out the form below with as much detail as possible. Allow up to 24 hours response time.

Within a short time you will have an informed understanding of music theory.
