I studied two other instruments (viola and piano) apart from the violin however, I only teach violin.

Raffaele is very passionate about music this reflects in the way that he teaches. Raffaele is the best teacher that my daughter has had teaching her. She has been playing the violin for 6 years and the improvement over just a few months is very noticeable. I would recommend Rafaele to anyone who wants to play the violin seriously.
