Welcome. I'm Craig Rogers, a private guitar instructor and composer based in Los Angeles. I am a third generation Los Angeles native and grew up immersed in the local music scene and entertainment industry. My life as a musician began by playing guitar in various bands in the L.A. area. After graduating from the University of Southern California, Thornton School of Music, I began teaching private guitar lessons as a way for me to stay connected to the excitement of learning while continuing to gig with bands.|
Having been a songwriter, I later turned my efforts towards music for Film and Television. My compositions are influenced by diverse flavors including rock, funk, jazz, techno/electronica and heavy metal. I've scored a number of full-length independent films, and written cues for networks and programs which include ABC, ABC Family, Good Morning America, Extra, Discovery Channel, HBO, PBS, E Entertainment, Style Network, History Channel, Oxygen Channel, Comcast Sports, Versus, NBA Action, Metro (yep, the bus), and Fox Sports. My music is used in media all over the world including France, Canada, South Africa, Australia, Japan, Netherlands, Hong Kong, Denmark, United Kingdom, Spain, Mexico, Brazil, Venezuela, and beyond.
