Raymond C. San Diego, CA

I teach electric guitar for blues and rock. My primary influences are Robben Ford, Scott Henderson, Guthrie Govan, Greg Koch, and Kirk Fletcher. I also teach classical guitar.

About Raymond

I was fortunate to be professionally taught in the Romero style of classical guitar and have studied with great concert artists such as Robert Wetzel, Dr. Alexander Dunn, Celino Romero, Dr. Randy Pile, and Dr. Colin McAllister at Grossmont College, University of California San Diego, and Victoria Conservatory of Music. I have performed in numerous masterclasses including Antonio De Innocentis, Alexander Dunn, Gerd Wuestemann, Scott Wolf, Jason Vieaux, and Celino Romero. I have also performed with various ensembles including the Grossmont, VCM, UCSD, Villa Musica, and SDSU guitar ensembles. While I get quite a bit of enjoyment out of playing the guitar, I get greater enjoyment from passing my knowledge and experience of the instrument along to others. I have been teaching since 1999 ...

I took four lessons so far with Ray and found that he is not only a great teacher but also an amazing guitarist. He corrects my fingering to make it easier and gives me ideas of how to practice certain strums. He also teaches me effective ways how to improve my skills. He is very pleasant and easy to get along with and learn from. Strongly recommended.

Raymond is an excellent guitar instructor.

My first lesson with Raymond went exceptionally well. After listening to me play a little, Raymond immediately honed in on my biggest weakness, and stressed the vital importance of using the metronome to play the Giuliani Right Hand Studies correctly. HIs manner was disarming and he happily answered all my questions as I tried to "pick his brain" with the many questions I had re. technique. Thus, Raymond proved to be a very knowledgeable instructor, carefully analyzing my right hand technique and sharing from his extensive background the subtleties of modern classical guitar technique as opposed to the Segovia and Romero styles. Above all, his amiable demeanor and eagerness to help me become a better player was evident throughout the entire lesson. HIs respectful behavior was very conducive to learning, and I am very excited about my next lesson with Raymond!

Outstanding teacher, highly skilled pro

Ray does phenomenal work teaching guitar as a gifted instructor and inspiring performer. My wife and I cannot stress enough how far our son has come in playing skill as well as overall understanding and appreciation of music. In choosing an instrument, we wanted one our son could take with him wherever might go in life, so as to always have the company of his own live music he could pour himself into. Ray has made that vision true. Absolutely recommended!
David B. Santee, CA

About David

After graduating from Salford University, England with a Bachelors degree (Honors) in Music and Composing I worked for a short time as a commercial "jingle" writer, before moving to San Diego, marrying my dream girl, and opening my own music recording, teaching and production studio. From there I have been teaching lessons, recording bands and writing music for independent film ad video games for the last 6 years. Throughout this time I've been continually performing live in venues all over California. *** Lesson Details *** I teach both from a privately rented studio in Santee and from my home studio in La Mesa. Both are fully equipped for guitar, bass and drum lessons and even have recording facilities! In my lesson plans I try to combine theory and technique with practical application

Dave is able to work with me, a beginner, and provide me with enough challenge so that I keep learning and also keep interested in drums. He has a great sense of humor along with patience which is important with a teacher whom is teaching a beginner. At times he will also take out a guitar and play along which adds to the fun.

If I had to put what I've experience with Mr. Bruce H. it would be excellent, magnificent, superb, and outrageously good. He is very professional and is very attentive. I did not think I could learn to sing because of my strong Caribbean accent, but the training I received from Bruce- my son said "mummy your voice sound sweet." At that moment I know I had to finish what I had started. If Bruce can make a frog sing and sound sweet- the only word to describe him would be- Genius.

Acoustic Guitar · In studio
Francesca Valle is more than your average guitar teacher. I never feel like I'm doing her enough justice when I refer to her as "my guitar teacher" because she has honestly been more like a mentor than anything else. I can honestly say that I don't think I would have gotten anywhere with my music if it weren't for her. Because of Francesca, I have grown so much as an artist in songwriting, recording, and performing.

If you are looking for a teacher that knows what they're talking about and how to bring out the best in their students, Francesca is the teacher for you.

Trevor H. El Cajon, CA

Various genres of guitar including: rock, metal, shred, blues, funk, pop.

About Trevor

Every musician was first and foremost a fan of music. My love of music began when my mother took me to a performance of Beethoven's fifth symphony when, coincidentally, I was five. From that point, I started fervently listening to my mother's records (those are the huge, black monstrosities that people in the pre-historic used in place of iPods), followed closely by my father's CD collection. After a while, this ravenous desire of to know and feel music moved me to play an instrument. After a couple of false starts with the drums and violin, I found my true musical calling: the guitar. On January 25th 1995, on a whim, I began playing the guitar, and I have yet to put it down. Along the way I've picked up a number of friends for my guitar, including the bass, the ...

Trevor is a knowledgeable and capable teacher. I am not a beginning student, I have a degree in music and I have played guitar for many years. I was looking for someone to help take my playing in a different more refined direction. Trevor is excellent. He knew I had an understanding of music already and came to me with a nuanced and exciting curriculum.

He is personable, professional, and most of all, an excellent teacher.

\Trevor is a great teacher--and I hope to pick up the lessons later on after I get done with my doctors. When I started all I knew for sure was that the piano had white and black keys. It's always nice to learn something new. Thanks to Trevor. ED

About Kyle

*WHY TAKE LESSONS* Study after study shows that strong music exposure at young ages leads to academic success in all subjects. But the benefits propagate throughout your life - confidence, positive self-esteem, and the knowledge that working hard yields fruit. My job as your teacher is to help you or your young child along this path. It's not a stretch to see that music lessons, where you achieve success by diligent practice, teach patience and discipline. *WHO I AM* I'm a recent graduate of the Applied Music Program at San Diego Mesa College and a current senior at San Diego State University majoring in Music Performance. I've been teaching since 2011, and have had a blast teaching students as young as 5 and as "mature" as 65 (their words, not mine!). I specialize in classical ...
