About Raphael

Hey everyone,

I am a freshman at UGA looking to give lessons to students who want to learn how to play guitar. I have played guitar for a long time, and I love it. I believe everyone should have the chance to learn how to play guitar and I love teaching people how to play.

I have played guitar at an "advanced" level since I was 12. I taught myself how to play for a few years, before deciding to develop my skills by taking lessons. I was invited to become a lead guitarist at a large church when I was 12 years old, and this gave me years of experience performing. Through these years of development I have reached a point where I can relate to students who are beginning and help easily guide them to become advance players.

So how will my lesson help you learn to play? My lessons will teach students how to feel music and apply scales, bringing them to a point where they can easily create their own music. I do not teach students how to read sheet music, but will teach students how to identify music by ear and read tabs. Depending on where you are as a player, I will be teaching warm-ups, finger development exercises, scales, chords, riffs, improv techniques, and entire songs.

My lessons are a great opportunity for students looking to learn quickly and learn guitar in a way that will give them skills that never go away.

If you have any more questions or would like to find out rates and locations, please contact me!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Guitar

I have been playing guitar for about 7 years. Not long after learning to play guitar, I spent years as a lead guitarist for my church band which gave me a great experience in learning specific songs and showing others how to play those songs. I taught myself how to play guitar, and then took lessons for about a year both to develop my own skills and learn how to properly teach students how to play guitar. I began teaching people the basics of guitar about 2 years ago, and have been able to mix my own style with traditional guitar lessons. My lessons are centered around learning how to play guitar through feeling rather than memorizing songs, and therefore my students gain a more natural and complete ability to play guitar, and then even teach themselves things.
