Jason vocally coached me during many studio sessions over the years. Not only is he an excellent musician in diverse genres, but he is patient, attentive, and communicates clearly. He knows how to give the right amount of support to help vocalists find their very best sound and style for a particular genre. I would recommend Jason for any singer looking to generally improve their voice, prepare for an audition, recording, or performance.

Flamenco guitar lessons with Raphael are unique because he grew up, and studied in Spain. And knows all the secrets that you can only learn by living, and working with some of the best Flamenco artists of today. He can teach you how to accompany singing, and how to accompany dancers. 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.

About raphael

Hi! My name is Raphael, and I am a Flamenco guitarist. I've been playing for over 25 years, and lived in Spain for over 10 years. I have had the pleasure of traveling the world playing guitar and working with some of the best Flamenco artists from Spain, as well as here in the U.S. I am a full ti

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!

My students have spanned every age, experience level, and walk of life through the years... Some wanted to join a band, some wanted to go on to music school, some were aspiring songwriters, and others were simply interested in an awesome hobby! I've been teaching acoustic guitar for over 13 years and teach a mix of playing technique, music theory, ear training, as well as working on songs and styles of playing that the student is interested in. Along with my teaching experience, I have plenty of stage and studio experience as well which allows me to bring those things to the table. More real world and less dry and academic you might say...

About Cameron

STUDYING WITH ME: Learning guitar should be interesting and fun! While we're studying all the different aspects of the instrument, you'll also be learning how to play your favorite songs and solos! I approach each student as an individual and structure their lessons according to what I determine

Cameron is an excellent teacher for me. I am 11 years old and have been playing for almost a year with him. He is patient and makes me stretch to be a better guitarist. He takes time to find songs at my level of learning and accommodates my tastes in music. I would recommend him for anyone who is interested in playing guitar.
Kim K.
I enjoyed my first lesson with Cameron. He explained things clearly so I could understand. Can't wait for my next lesson.
Pat A.
A solid teacher with a lot of experience

Cameron is great at tailoring the lessons to my musical taste without compromising the theory, basics and fundamentals.
I have been taking lessons for one year and will not go elsewhere anytime soon. His vast musical knowledge helps merge the theory with concrete examples. No question remains unanswered.

Nick
Adam is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and most importantly a great teacher! He's patient and great at breaking down trickier ideas to be understood by someone with minimal theory knowledge like myself. And he's a great player to boot! I would gladly recommend Adam as an instructor to anyone looking for general music theory knowledge on the guitar all they way to more advanced level jazz techniques.

Thanks Adam!
Andy
Adam is a fantastic guitar teacher. He paced his lessons so that the amount of information I had to cover was reasonable for my busy schedule, and every week I came away feeling more and more confident in my playing!
Yami
Adam taught both my daughters. He is very knowledgeable and has a natural gift for teaching. The girls were engaged in the class and considerably improved in technique. He really is the best instructor ever!

He customized my lessons to my skills and needs and he always made himself available if I ever had any questions.
