Learn guitar in the heart of Seville

I teach private guitar lessons in Seville, Spain in flamenco guitarclassical guitar, and Spanish guitar.  My classes are geared towards visitors to Seville who come especially to explore flamenco guitar and culture, or who simply want to musically enrich their stay with Spanish or classical guitar lessons.   Students can take anywhere from one introductory class to several months of intensive classes.


Location

All private guitar lessons take place in my cozy top-floor home studio in the center of Seville (see map at right). It is within a 30-minute walk from anywhere in the city center.  See a larger map here, and I will provide the exact address and detailed directions when you book.

IMPORTANT: My studio is on the third floor and there is no elevator.  If you can't climb stairs, please let me know.  We may need to arrange another location for the classes.

Guitar for rent

If you're visiting Seville, I can loan you a guitar for use during private guitar lessons (no charge!).  If you plan on taking several flamenco guitar lessons, you will learn much faster with regular practice between classes.  If you don't want the hassle or risk of traveling with your own guitar, I can rent you a guitar during your stay.  It is a Yamaha classical guitar (CG-151S) that is set up for flamenco and is very comfortable and easy to play.  The cost of rent is 30€ per week, plus a 300€ cash deposit that I return to you when you return the guitar.  Please check in advance on availability! 


My experience

I discovered flamenco guitar in my hometown of Richmond, Va (USA) and instantly became hooked. Six years ago I moved to Seville to pursue flamenco full-time and have been immersed in the flamenco world ever since. I currently accompany dancers and singers in Seville and teach guitar to students from all over the world. I love sharing my passion with newcomers to the art form and guiding their discovery of flamenco in Seville.

​Prior to relocating to Spain, I studied Classical Guitar Performance at Virginia Commonwealth University.  I have been teaching since 2007.  In addition to in-person private guitar lessons in Seville, I teach students all over the world via the online lesson platform Lessonface.  I have taught first songs to six year olds, prepared serious students for university auditions, and helped retirees review the basics and expand their repertoire.  


More about private guitar lessons

​I teach flamenco guitar lessons to beginning, intermediate, and advanced players.  I focus flamenco lessons on learning the basics of flamenco technique, understanding flamenco compás (rhythm), building a repertoire of falsetas and solo material, and learning the basics of accompanying cante (flamenco singing).  In addition to personal instruction during lessons, I guide students' study of flamenco outside the lesson by suggesting videos, recordings, printed material, and live performances that will help round out your flamenco experience.  Find everything you need to know about flamenco guitar classes in Seville here.

I teach classical guitar and spanish guitar (classical guitar with emphasis on Spanish repertoire) to students of all levels, from absolute beginners to advanced and even professional players.  For long-term students, I focus lessons on learning and refining classical guitar technique, music theory, approaches to interpretation, and building a well-rounded and interesting repertoire that includes pieces from many styles and eras.  For visitors to Seville who will be taking lessons temporarily, we will concentrate heavily on repertoire and include technique when it would be helpful.  For young students and students new to music, I emphasize good practice techniques and guide them in setting and achieving musical goals.   Read all you need to know about classical guitar lessons and spanish guitar lessons in Seville here. 

I relate well to children and adapt my teaching style to give young students what they need to learn best.  Whether the lessons are in flamenco or classical guitar,  I move patiently and thoroughly through the fundamentals and lay out very clear goals both within the lessons and for practice time between lessons.  I am happy to give the guitar lessons in Spanish when the visit to Seville is intended to be language-focused.
