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 and 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 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!

Wonderful patient and knowledgeable

Raymond Is an excellent instructor. My son is a beginner and Raymond came very prepared and prepared me as a parent before the class on all the materials my son needed to be prepared for the class. My son is comfortable with Raymond and with his lessons and is enjoying the instruction very much. We look forward to many more lessons and learning with Raymond.

Excellent Teacher

My son has really enjoyed learning Dutch with Raymond. His lessons are perfect, very clear and easy to understand. The lessons focus on learning skills to begin basic conversations in Dutch and they have already covered so much material. Raymond is a great teacher and my son looks forward to each of the classes.

knowledgeable, detail-oriented, patient tutor.

I really like how Raymond has helped me get the subtleties of pronunctiation right! He has a great way of explaining what to do with my mouth to get the right sound and I made more progress learning Dutch in one lesson than I have made in months trying to do this on my own with an app. He is flexible and explained in a way that made it easy for me to absorb. I would highly recommend Raymond and I plan to keep working with him to build up my fluency.

Annie, 14 lessons with Raymond

Good for beginners

Remi is good for students just starting out learning a language. He is patient and goes slowly and helps give you good building blocks to learn more. You will go over verbs, vocabulary, and writing short texts.

A wealth of information

Raymond has been awesome. He has taught me both Dutch and Papiamentu phrases to help me on my trip to Curacao. Granted, I did do some additional learning on my own, but with Raymond's help I feel that I'll be able to converse at a basic level in either language. Additionally, he shared information about the Island of Curacao that will be helpful to me. Rather than 'textbook' teaching, he asked me to submit some specific words/phrases that I wanted to learn and then he spent a good amount of time preparing that information to go over in my final lesson before I travel. (I will definitely continue with additional, albeit less frequent, lessons upon my return). I would highly recommend Raymond L. to anyone who is interested in learning Dutch or Papiamentu. Papiamentu instruction in any form is difficult to come by. I'm so glad that I found Raymond L.!
