I've been playing guitar for about fifteen years and wanted to expand my musical horizons with some flamenco lessons - Rafael managed to step change my technique in several hours and it sparked a period of rich songwriting inspiration with the new rhythms and picking styles I learned. I cannot recommend him enough; he explains it so clearly and balances the technical side with the more emotional/story side of flamenco music!

I discovered a new passion for flamenco guitar through lessons with this Maestro! After years of enjoying flamenco music, I now understand much more of the rhythm that I ever believed was possible and can play enough to impress my friends! Highly recommended!

Rafael is a superb and patient guitar tutor from whom I have developed my own playing style and be inspired by Flamenco and Spanish culture.

You may recognise me at the end of the course in the bonus lecture, I am the student making the mistakes you might be making too! I wish to say in addition to everyone else's comments, Rafael's course teaches not just music and rhythm, but carries with it the soul and spirit of this beautiful music 💃. Having spent many years on-and-off (and unsuccessful new years resolutions!) not getting anywhere with guitar, Rafael's course finally motivated me and put me on the right track. I now just 'get it' in a way I couldn't before when I used free Youtube videos without any structure, and that change is thanks to Rafael. After Rafael's course I am motivated to practice regularly each week, and can see a radical improvement in where I am at in just months, compared to the little progress I made years before..

Taking this course has made me go back to the beginner mindset. It was an amazing reset button for my previous way of approaching guitar and music, since Flamenco wasn't a rhythm i thought i was interested about.I recommend it to anyone interested in getting in touch with a new music, new sounds, new rhythms and new emotions
JulieResearcher & open-mic singer, France
His music is soulful and alive. He has been trained on the ground, with gypsies from Spain. Knowing nothing about flamenco, I feel like I learnt a whole lot from Rafael in just two hours!
