As well as teaching full solo pieces. He has been playing guitar for over 25 years, and has toured the world. As well as playing in the opening ceremonies in Barcelona for the 1992 Olympics. He has worked artists such as El Farruquito, El Toromb, and El Manzanita. Just to mention a few. Raphael also speaks Spanish, German,and English. And is a very patient teacher, and gives great attention to detail.

I've worked with Raphael numerous times over the years. An excellent guitarist and teacher.
Stuart
I have been taking Flamenco Guitar lessons with Raphael since I moved to New York. It has been a wonderful experience! There are a few things about him that set him apart from other teachers i have worked with:
1. He is extremely patient - but at the same time points out when you are not in compas. If you have played flamenco before you know how important it is to get that correct - and he holds you accountable to the compas which is very helpful.
2. He intermixes exercises and falsetas in a helpful way. My fear with flamenco is that I wind up with a lot of falsetas that I can't really play right. Raphael is not afraid of giving you some exercises to grind on to get your techniques and timing up to par.
3. He is well connected in the NY flamenco world so you know what is happening and can hear a lot of flamenco out in the city.

My experience has been delightful. If you are looking to learn flamenco guitar and want to sound authentic and in compas- I would recommend Raphael unreservedly. Also he is a great guy to spend time with which is always a plus!
Nathalie
Raphael has been studying, teaching and performing throughout the United States and Europe with the top artists in the world of flamenco. Coming from an artistic family, he has grown up with the dedication,creativity and passion needed to become the unique musician he is. Raphael's vast knowledge and experience has helped people of all ages and levels of playing to learn, improve and grow.
Don't miss the opportunity to work with him!

For the first time I felt no strain on my vocal cord after a full hour class. Thank you Stephen! The technique practices were incredibly effective, helpful and relevant for me.
ramon
Stephen was : patient, understanding and very composed as a teacher.
Nina
My 10 year old son has no musical knowledge what-so-ever. We wanted him to have some basics, and he was curious about the guitar. Sadly our family isn't musical and it's hard to know where to start. We were lucky to have engaged Stephen. His calm, patient, encouraging approach has been the perfect complement to my son's temperament.

When I overhear snippets of exchanges during their lesson I am excited that my son is making connections and having a conversation about what he's learning. I can't support his instruction because of my complete inability to read sheet music—so I am particularly pleased that he seems to be making observations and taking small steps towards understanding something that confounds me.

My son looks forward to his time with teacher and (so far) is interested in practicing too. Of course we'd recommend Stephen!

Online Guitar Teacher

My name is Robert and I am 20 year old music student at Belmont. I have been playing guitar for over 11 years and have 6 years of study at a university level under my belt. I have studied jazz at the university of North Texas as well as the Fine Arts Center in Greenville SC. I have taken from numerous well known guitar players and teachers since middle school and have gained many different teaching methods through these experiences. My young age I find helps me connect with younger students and makes me less intimidating and easier and more fun to work with. My lessons are very student driven and I want you to get out of them exactly what you want. I have a lot of professional experience in Nashville playing in studio sessions for various artist and playing shows along the east coast with various bands. I can give students a university level teacher for a fraction of the price!

I have been taking lessons from Chris for 5 years. He is very open to learn and teach all styles of music. in turn, allowing me learn and play music I though i never would. His guidance in "the technology" of music is also greatly appreciated.
The learning experience with Chris is top notch, never an issue with communication or punctuality.Always able to move around his busy schedule for the "adult" student.

Hi! I am so stoked that you have decided to take guitar lessons. The guitar is an endlessly fascinating instrument that can be used to play a wide variety of styles. I look forward to sharing my knowledge of the instrument with you regardless of your skill level.

A little bit about my life with the guitar:

I began learning guitar with my father and brother at home. Then I took electric guitar lessons in the blues and soul genre with a local legend named Carl "Good Rockin" Robinson. I also studied jazz and classical with Leo Cavanagh.

Later, I studied finger-style with Peppino D'Agostino, jazz with Mimi Fox, and flat-picking with Eric Thomson (website error won't let me spell his name correctly with a "p").

In college, I had the privilege to study classically with Scott Tennant and Pepe Romero, amongst others.

Today, I write and perform with a rock band called Idle Joy, with a folk singer called Rainy Eyes, and for private events. Recently, I had the great honor of ...

Daniel has such a rich knowledge of the guitar that he imparted to me with such an ease of explanation and patience. His teaching style encouraged me to believe that I could play anything I wanted on guitar, that there were no limits to what I could do or play. He never treated me like a beginner, he treated me like a pro, and was able to teach me skill sets and songs that I felt were way beyond my level because of his careful instruction and tuning into my optimal learning style right away.
Needless to say, he’s an amazing music teacher and he’s also the most skilled guitarist I’ve ever met.
Jack
Daniel Lavezzo is an extremely knowledgeable, open and dynamic guitar tutor. He was always willing and able to teach me everything I wanted or needed to know. I studied classical, finger-style acoustic, blues and a little bit of jazz with him. He always took me to that next level of playing and kept me inspired. On top of all that he is genuinely positive and kind. I highly recommend studying under him.

I'm a beginner and Jeff has great patience with me. He let me catch up lessons at my speed and makes sure I'm playing well.
I'm also learning to read music from him.
He is very encouraging and patiently clears any doubts I have while playing. He points out mistakes and makes sure I clear it before going to the next lesson. I look forward to my lessons with him every week as it makes me happy and more confident while I play guitar."

"Ahmad is truly amazing! I'm only on my 2nd lesson and I'm already learning chords to popular songs. I have been looking for a teacher like this for years. I'm 36 and I've been wanting to play guitar for over a decade, and I kinda gave up, because every teacher I had made it seem complicated and impossible to play a full song. After my 1st lesson with Ahmad (which was FREE), I learned that playing guitar doesn't have to be complicated and hard to learn. He is everything you'd want in a guitar teacher - he's super encouraging, motivating and really makes the lesson fun!! He has a way of explaining everything clearly and breaks the music down into simple, easy to understand techniques. The lessons are affordable, the schedule is flexible, and I'm already very excited about the progress I'm making!"

How to Play Guitar Chords in Different Positions up the Neck

Chords are the foundation of all of those guitar riffs you love so much. Here, guitar teacher Kirk R. walks you through the basics of guitar chords and the importance of knowing how they're constructed... Guitar is an amazing instrument, not only because of all that it can do, but also because of how great it can sound when not doing much at all. One of the ways that guitar is most often heard is by strumming the standard chords that beginner guitarists learn. However, I often inter …
