Access a wealth of knowledge
This series of courses are the fruit of years of loving effort, intensified by a single-minded dedication to revive the Puerto Rican music. This learning system is a culmination of sorts for Samuel Ramos, proud Puerto Rican, educator and musician, in his efforts to renew the heritage of Puerto Rico and its musical elements.

This collection is a vault of knowledge that Samuel received from his tutors and mentors. He shares all of it with you through this amazing compilation of music. Most of the music you will see in the course have been transcribed for the first time. Samuel has dug up tons of these songs and put them together for you to learn. This is his way of preserving his beloved Puerto Rican traditions!
