What is your flamenco guitar level?

Our school offers two different levels: Beginners/intermediate and intermediate/advanced, however it is always necessary to have minimal command of the instrument, be it from different musical genres.

Beginners/Intermediate:

To enrol at this level, you don't need to have played flamenco before, but you do need to have played the guitar regularly for about 2 years. You should at least be able to tune the guitar, play minor and major chords, slurs, simple arpeggios, and have a basic idea of rhythm in general. The guitar should be played with the fingers (without plectrum).

Intermediate/Advanced:

At this level, you should be familiar with the techniques of alzapúa, scales, tremolo, and basic rhythms such as soleares, tangos, alegrías and bulerías, as well as some falsetas from each style.

For at least three months, you will take two hours and a half of guitar classes every afternoon. This course combines the Intensive Guitar Course and the course on Rhythmic Bases, which will allow you to advance properly, studying every technique and learning the ‘falsetas’ (small variations on the original melody), chords and rhythms of the different ‘palos’ (or styles). You will have a daily hour and a half of guitar classes in the beginner/intermediate level and an extra hour dedicated to practicing the rhythmic bases of each ‘palo’. This level is prepared for students that play other styles of guitar and want to learn the techniques of flamenco guitar.

During the first class you will dedicate half an hour to the general technique of flamenco guitar and an hour to a specific ‘palo’, changing every two weeks. You will study the correct placement of the hands and the main ways to play with the right hand (pushing and pulling). There will also be simple exercises for arpeggios, ‘picados’ (quickly playing with the index and middle fingers), thumb technique, ‘alzapúa’ (plucking upwards with the thumb), tremolo and strummings. The following hour you will study a specific ‘palo’, such as: tangos, fandangos de Huelva, alegrías, soleá, etc; studying its rhythm, short ‘falsetas’ and chords.

During the second class you will have an hour dedicated exclusively to studying the rhythmic bases of that week’s ‘palo’, so you know how to play the rhythm on the guitar. You will practice the basic chords and most common rhythmic variations, with their different strummings. You will study the same ‘palo’ in both classes every two weeks, so you can make a more complete study of each.

The guitar instructors are themselves flamenco professionals with years of teaching experience. All of them perform on stage at the various tablaos or local theatres in Granada giving their students an opportunity to see them “in action” as artists outside of school.

In addition to this you may also participate for one week in our Understanding Flamenco: Rhythm for free, at the level that suits you best, as a complement to the guitar classes.
