The Victoria Guitar Society is proud to present Paris-based award winning classical guitarist, Raphaël Feuillâtre. Raphaël Feuillâtre started classical guitar lessons at the age of nine with Hacène Addadi at Cholet Conservatory. In 2012, he entered Michel Grizard’s class at the Conservatory of Nantes. Three years later, he was accepted to the Paris National Superior Conservatory of Music and Dance (CNSMDP) into the class of Roland Dyens and obtained his Bachelor of Performing Arts degree in 2017 with highest honors. He is currently working on his Master’s Degree in Classical Guitar Performance with Tristan Manoukian. Raphaël also works with Judicaël Perroy, who plays a very important role in his artistic development.
Alongside his studies, Raphaël has taken part in various international guitar competitions, obtaining several major awards. In 2017, he won the 1st prize in the International Guitar Competition Jose Tomas – Villa Petrer in Spain. This enabled him to record his first album with JSM Guitar Records in 2018 (Bach, Granados, Tansman, Assad, Dyens) and be invited to multiple festivals in and outside France (Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Hungary, Holland, Montenegro, Spain, Brazil, Argentina, etc.). Winner of the highly prestigious competition Guitar Foundation of America (GFA) in 2018, Raphaël is preparing the recording of his second opus (Naxos Label, 2019) and is currently on a six month tour around USA and Canada, as well as Mexico and Japan during 2019-2020 season.
Raphaël divides his time between performing and teaching. He regularly gives Master Classes during his numerous festival concert trips and has a permanent teaching position at the Music School of Villeneuve-la-Garenne in the Paris region.
