"I have done Rafael's Creative Processes course and it was incredible!


I want to share it with everyone - I highly recommend this course! The tips and information that he shares are invaluable!

He changed my life with the way he looks at important elements in the music that needs to be addressed when you are writing, composing, and arranging.

I'm very thankful for him. And I highly recommend this course because I think it is incredible! It is amazing!

Everyone out there: check out any educational material that Rafael puts out because it is priceless!"
