ONLINE FLAMENCO SCHOOL Join the first community of flamenco students around the world
why an online flamenco guitar school?
After many years teaching students from all over the world and after 5 years of teaching online, the time has come to open the first international online guitar school. Students from all over the world have come to me over the last few years for private lessons, master classes and conferences.
Now you can learn and understand the flamenco guitar through the online school without waiting and meet other students like you that will be at a similar level and can share their knowledge. Welcome to the first international online flamenco guitar school!
First steps to become a guitarist
Studying flamenco guitar we must go through several phases. But in each of them we have to understand clearly where we are and where we are going. There are two main points: - Techniques and position of the hands and body: it is very important to know the many techniques applied in the flamenco guitar and to do a daily study routine to develop them. Each technique will have its developed examples and studies. Later, we will apply each technique to each flamenco style.
- Knowledge and application of rhythm in flamenco guitar: there is NO FLAMENCO without a solid rhythm. We wrongly start studying flamenco guitar trying to play melodies of the great flamenco guitarists. And we forget that these great guitarists composed these melodies after having a very deep knowledge of rhythm. A flamenco guitarist, must always have a great control and mastery of rhythm. My classes are focused from the first day on the rhythmic development of flamenco styles.
How long is the course?
Each of the flamenco styles has a duration of approximately 4 classes (1 month). During these four classes we will analyse the style and I will show you examples of each of its parts so that you can play and practice while understanding how the style develops. After each class, I will send you videos of each of the exercises analysed during the class, at super slow speed for you to practice and with a metronome so that you can see the real speed. *If you are a beginner, there will be 4 weeks of technical preparation before starting to develop the styles.
What are your goals during and after this course?
The main guarantee of my teaching is you. You yourself will notice week after week how your hands understand and integrate the necessary movements to play your guitar better and better. If your study time is made out of quality, your playing will be of quality. As the course progresses, your agility will increase and your knowledge of the culture and art of flamenco will grow. You will also find that by understanding the structure of one style, you will be able to understand all the other styles more easily. Don't forget that flamenco is a language. And with this language you must communicate with other guitarists, singers, dancers and musicians from other musical cultures. After a few months you will know how to play the styles, how to listen to them. You will know how to differentiate each of the styles and you will also have your own opinion about the flamenco you listen to. In conclusion, you will know how to play, how to understand, how to listen and how to improvise.
