Craig Ogden studied guitar from the age of seven and percussion from the age of thirteen and in 2004 he was honoured by the Royal Northern College of Music with a Fellowship in recognition of his achievements.

A typical review:

I love this album. It has a lovely mix of recognisable pieces and I listened to it a few times over when I first got it - it's mellow and relaxing and perfect for the summer. I am going to get several copies to give as gifts as I have a few family birthdays over the summer.

  1. #guitar lessons Tell your story

    It takes a brave soul to sing your heart out in front of a crowd, but it takes even more bravery when you’re in the third grade and let alone when you’re the only boy!

    Stage fright didn’t seem to faze Hullinger much though as he recalled the time that he conquered the stage singing “The Race Is On” by Sawyer Brown at a local Midland, S.D. talent show.

    His dream may have grown wings on that talent show stage in third grade but Hullinger shared that it didn’t quite take flight until later in life.

    At a young age, Hullinger has accomplished goals wide enough to fill an entire lifetime.

    He shared that one of his greatest privileges to date was the opportunity to share the stage with Chris Ledoux’s son, Ned Ledoux.

    Hullinger shares, “I’m still learning myself, I never once thought that I would be playing music and sharing stage with the people that I have.

    All I can say is that if there’s something you’re passionate about, keep trying! You will get a lot of no’s and small shows but if it’s worth it to you, it’s worth it.”
