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!

Outstanding first lesson.

Raymond is not only highly accomplished and professional, but he is very friendly and motivating. I left our first encounter with practical exercises to work on and with lots of enthusiasm.

Kim, 2 lessons with Raymond

Very Effective Teacher

No more self study for me. Probably would have been an advanced player by now had I taken lessons from Raymond from the get-go. (Instead of learning by myself through books and YouTube).... He was able to quickly identify all of the bad habits and flawed techniques which I developed over the years of self-study. Gave me exercises and pointers to correct.

Percival, 8 lessons with Raymond

A very fun and patient tutor

We’ve only been using Raymond for 3 weeks but we’ve had a wonderful experience. He’s so patient with us and extremely thorough. We love his style of teaching! Five plus stars!

Great Tutor

Before I started lessons, I had almost no experience with playing the piano. But in just a couple of lessons, I have already learned more basic techniques than I ever did when I was teaching myself.

El Maestro

I am an adult who is currently learning to play guitar from Raymond L. I have had other guitar teachers before and he is one of my favorite teachers. He is patient, knowledgeable, and very motivating. He is very organized. He helps me to learn the instrument step by step. Being organized definitely makes it so much easier for me to practice guitar. He is also an author of a learn how to play guitar book. He really cares that his student is learning to play the instrument as well as becoming a musician who understands music theory.

Carlos, 19 lessons with Raymond

Fun, relaxing guitar sessions

In three or four classes, Raymond took me from the absolute novice level to being able to do a passable performance of "Country Roads". He is a very encouraging teacher and does not put too much pressure on students, so that classes are always fun. He is also very understanding about potential scheduling issues. Would recommend!

Daniel, 3 lessons with Raymond

Knowledgeable and patient teacher

So far I've had 2 lessons with Raymond and I feel have learn so much more than I have with any in person instructors I've had. He has great tips and tricks for chord changes which is very helpful when i practice. I highly recommend Raymond!
