Who can attend
All levels of guitar experience are welcome! I adapt my teaching to your abilities.
While there is no minimum age, young students need to be big enough to handle a full-size guitar.
I can accommodate up to three guests at a time, one student and two 'auditors'.
TWO IMPORTANT NOTES:
(1) My studio is on the third floor and there is no elevator. If you can't climb stairs, I will arrange another location for the classes.
(2) I have a cat. Please let me know if you are allergic, and I will clean thoroughly and hide her away.
Where classes take place
The guitar lesson portion of the experience takes place in my cozy top-floor home studio in the center of Seville (Calle Infantes, see map below). It is a 15-minute walk from the Giralda Cathedral, five minutes from 'las Setas' (Metropol Parasol), and five minutes from the Alameda de Hercules. For the light refreshments and an introduction to flamenco, we will move to my building's azotea (rooftop terrace, very typical in Seville) if weather permits. I will provide the exact address and detailed directions when you book.
What we'll do
Whether you're a a curious beginner or seasoned musician looking for new tricks and inspiration, you'll discover a fascinating new dimension of the guitar in the world of flamenco. You'll explore first-hand the structures and rhythms that make flamenco work and uncover how flamenco dance, singing and guitar unite to create the passion and energy that we experience in flamenco.
The first part of the class you'll spend with a guitar in hand, learning fundamental techniques and repertoire of flamenco guitar. We'll make a few short videos of the music you learn to refresh your memory when you return home. Then, over light refreshments, I'll give you an overview of flamenco's origins and evolution. You'll learn how flamenco dancers, singers, and guitarists communicate to deliver a breath-taking improvised performance. I'll guide you in the best places to see live flamenco performances during your stay.
You'll walk away with the essential knowledge you need to fully appreciate your flamenco experience in Seville, tricks and techniques that will inspire your guitar playing in any style, and (who knows!) the first building blocks for your future as a flamenco guitarist.
