Raffi Arslanyan is a Turkish citizen but his origin is Armenian. He is one of the best classical guitar teachers in the world and gives lessons to even music academy teachers and professors. Does anyone know about Raffi Arslanyan here?

I'm not turkish and I do not know raffi arslanyan but if you say he's one of the best classical guitar players in the world, I'll check his works out. I love music and I don't care if the musician is american, asian, african, european, or even martian as long as the music's good. Thanks for the link. I'll surely check it out. Have a good one.

I couldn't believe that such a hero was living in my city! There are some great guitar players who are also instructors in conservatory. Erdem Sökmen was one of them and I really think he plays great (but doesn't have own compositions) and later I learnt that Erdem Sökmen and another great guitarist Erdinç Senyaylar were just students of Raffi Arslanyan, I think he should be a great teacher really. If only it was not so expensive and I could afford it... How sad
