About US

I am available in Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland, across the USA and overseas. I've been performing for 20 years as a professional classical guitarist, but I am also highly trained as a composer/arranger, orchestral/choral conductor, organist and therapeutic musician. I perform guitar recitals, concerts, for weddings and other events. I have a wide selection of music (see my song list); however, you can choose almost any music you'd like, and if it's not in my repertoire, I'll arrange it and learn it for you. This means that my repertoire keeps constantly growing on behalf of my clients. I carry my own amplification system, which can be also used outdoors without electricity. My musical styles include: Classical music, pop/Movie/Folk/Celtic/Irish/Jazz songs, Spanish, Flamenco, Hispanic, Brazilian and Therapeutic music. Basically, I'm open to playing almost any music you request.I always make agreements and reservations through a contract.

Some feedbacks:
Thank you so much for making our wedding so special. You were a pleasure to work with. Please, reach out to me if you ever need a referral! Halley & Kevin, June 9, 2012 (Charlottesville, VA)
We just wanted to write and thank you for playing at our wedding. The music was truly wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you also for allowing Chris' son, Jackson, to play your guitar. We very much appreciated that and he was absolutely thrilled! Chris and I had a memorable day celebrating with family and friends so thank you for helping to make it a special day for us. Lindsey & Chris (9-10-2011)
Rafael played for our intimate wedding ceremony at a winery in Northern Virginia in February of 2011. He was so helpful with song choices but left everything up to us. He wanted to make our day very special. I asked if he could play a popular song for us and he was able to arrange it so beautifully! He made our wedding absolutely perfect and our guests gave repeated compliements about his performance. I would recommend him over and over again!!! Thank you Rafael for a perfect wedding to remember for a lifetime!
Thank you so much for the beautiful job you did for our wedding! The music was perfect. You added such tenderness to our ceremony. Thank you for arriving early and sitting through the heat! We appreciate your talents! Best - Meredith & Jose (7-11-2011).
I just wanted to thank you again for providing the beautiful music for our Oct. 9th wedding ceremony, it was perfect! Your rendition of "Storybook Love" brought tears to my eyes, thank you so much for preparing it for me on such short notice! We really appreciate your time, effort and talent... I can't imagine a more perfect musician for our special day. I am so happy you were available and willing to play for our wedding, your music was absolutely beautiful... thank you so much again! Lauren
We retained Rafael to provide accompaniment to our wedding ceremony on a short notice with little direction or guidance. His taste, discretion, and talent served us well. We were provided with an elegant, serene, and ethereal serenade to compliment our celebration. John & Young 12-27-09. Thank you again. Young
Thank you again so much for your lovely music which I feel made the wedding quite special. I also appreciate your flexibility as this was not a highly organized event and your ability to read the situation and add the lovely music was quite special. We so appreciate it. Carolyn
I want to thank you for joining with us on March 18, 2010, to perform at our President's Circle Gala. Your outstanding performance was the perfect touch and contributed so much to the success of the evening. You should know that I received many compliments on the fine entertainment. Your music truly is inspiring and I cannot thank you enough for taking time out of your busy schedule to be with us. We'd love to have you back to perform sometime. Again, thank you so much for sharing your talents with us. Lindsey
On behalf of the Woodbridge Music Club, I would like to thank for your recent performance. Your recital was enjoyed by all present. We are extremely impressed, and hope you will be able to return and perform for us again in the future. In the mean time, we wish you continued success. June
