About Raymond (Remi)

I completed musical studies at the Conservatory of Music of San Juan, Puerto Rico and graduated MAGNA CUM LAUDE, with Majors in Musical Education and as a Performing Artist.
I am a qualified bilingual Music Instructor.
I have performed as a guitarist with several orchestras, musical groups, bands and as classical guitar soloist I have given numerous recitals and concerts.
I have worked as a Music Educator at the Social & Pedagogic Academic Institutes teaching pedagogic & didactic principles to teachers and at the same time I have been teaching classical and popular guitar at all levels and
ages at several other music schools.
I wrote a guitar method "MELODIC GUITAR" for beginners from 7 years of age and up, and this method has been translated from Papiamentu into the English and Spanish languages.
Although my music background is classical, I play and teach popular music, which I love.
Just to mention a few guitarists who appeal to me: Carlos Santana, George Benson, Paco de Lucia, Julian Bream.
I also teach electrical and acoustic guitar, bass-guitar, piano/keyboard, ukulele, Venezuelan & PR cuatro, songwriting and music theory.
Music is an International language; a way to express inner feelings!
And Teaching it, is my passion!

My 10 year old son has been taking piano lessons with Raymond for nearly a year. He's steadily learning from Raymond's patient, encouraging, methodical teaching style. Raymond was able to note when my son was not reading the music.and took the necessary steps to slow him down and teach him properly. I really appreciate Raymond's pedagogical insights. Because of his knowledge of the learning process and his lifetime experience of making music, Raymond is the best piano teacher we've encountered!

Kara A.

Jacksonville, FL

Music Theory is the science and math behind music. This is something that the student takes with them into other areas of study. Music Theory will help the student understand their music better, compose better, and play by ear even better than before! For advanced students, chart reading is included.

Marissa A.

Jacksonville, FL

My goal is to be able to increase the knowledge of the student. Whether the student is a music major or not, I am here to help the student understand how to read music, such as, understanding time signatures, note value, clef reading, and meters. The student can also be tutored through memorizing major scales, minor scales, order of sharps and flats, modes, and chord qualities. Depending on what level the student is at, will determine the curriculum I create for the student.

About Marissa

Hello!

My name is Marissa, and I play flute and bass guitar. I am currently a student at Florida State College at Jacksonville, and I'm majoring in Music Education. I have performed in many school-related concerts and competitions, but I also perform live outside of school boundaries.

Hope to meet you soon!
