A great teacher! Very friendly and patient. I came to Ramon without knowing anything about guitars. He patiently taught me the fundamentals: how to hold and care for the instrument, how to play from sheet music, and about chords and rhythm. Through expert observation, analysis, and feedback he ensured I started with a strong foundation and then he helped me quickly build new skills into my repertoire. He’s a flexible teacher, knowledgeable, and patiently willing to let me explore different styles.

Learning from Ramon has been an amazing experience. I wasn't sure I would ever fulfill my dream of playing classical guitar, but I found out Ramon taught over video chat, which fit in perfectly for my current lifestyle. His patience and knowledge has helped me achieve things I never even thought about - like learning to read music (and in a very short time period). This feat among others, would have never been possible without a wise teacher like Ramon to offer his guidance and instruction.

Ramon is one of those very rare instructors that will actually "teach" you classical and flamenco guitar music. It is a blessing to have Ramon help me on this journey; I don't make this statement lightly. By summer 2021, I will actually start playing classical and flamenco gigs. A lot of students cannot say this. You will not go wrong being Ramon's student.

I came to Ramon as an experienced student looking to broaden my horizons with Flamenco. I had studied many other styles with excellent teachers 25 years prior (including some well known guitarists). Ramon is up there with the best. He has a straightforward approach and brings the history and tradition of Flamenco to life. He has quite a depth of knowledge. I would highly recommend him to beginners or experienced players for any style.

A great teacher! I would highly recommend anyone who wants to learn how to play the guitar - classical, flamenco, or any style, to study with Ramon. It’s been a dream of mine since I was in high school to learn how to play flamenco, but it’s so hard to find a teacher, a live teacher not just videos. I’m so happy I found Ramon. Classes are via online video, so it works out perfectly especially these days. I’m always impressed at his ability to hear over video. He can pick out one wrong note or a string out of tune. He really pays attention and offers just the right correction to improve my playing. I didn’t know any chords or how to read music, now I can play! It’s a lot of work and practice but I love it. On top of that, I bought my first luthier guitar through him, a Francisco Navarro. It is a thing of beauty.
