In 2012, he entered the Conservatory at Nantes and, three years later, was accepted into the class of Roland Dyens at the Paris National Superior Conservatory of Music and Dance where he obtained his Bachelor of Performing Arts degree in 2017 with highest honours. In 2019, Raphael completed his Master’s in Classical Guitar Performance.

Following his win at the 2018 Guitar Foundation of America (GFA) International Concert Artist Competition, classical guitar’s most prestigious competition, Raphaël completed the recording of his second CD for the Naxos Label, and set out on a nine-month tour of North America.
