Why You Need a Teacher. . .

Learning one-on-one in person from a teacher (and not in a group class) is really the only way to truly progress on your instrument. A good teacher can help correct bad habits you may have developed, which may be keeping you from advancing to the next level. We will guide you through the steps necessary to achieve your personal musical goals on the guitar, ukulele, piano, or banjo!

All Ages and All Levels Welcome!

Lessons are first come, first served so contact us today to arrange your first lesson!

Rafael is also a leading and inspiring teacher, who is very often invited to major Universities and guitar festivals in the U.S. and Mexico to impart high level masterclasses and courses, designed to improve technique, interpretation and motivation.

Appreciated for his absolutely clear and well-defined technique, he is frequently solicited to realize videos and recordings for main guitar stores and master luthiers.
