This class is perfect for those who already play different styles of guitar and would like to add the Flamenco technique to their repertoire. The advanced guitar class focuses on helping flamenco guitarists polish their style, discover new ones, and learn the techniques for accompanying dance and singing.

Our school offers two different levels of guitar classes: Beginning/Intermediate and Intermediate/Advanced with students needing to possess a basic knowledge of how to play the guitar of any style. The maximum number of students in each class is limited to eight to ensure quality interaction with the instructor.

Students move at their own pace and only move up in level when they are ready or when their professor advises a change. In most cases, however, students remain at the beginning/intermediate level between four and six weeks before moving up to the intermediate/advanced level. It is also possible to change teachers every two weeks.

The guitar instructors are themselves flamenco professionals with years of teaching experience. Many 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.

Classes are an hour and a half long everyday Monday through Friday and are offered for a week or longer.

Every two weeks students study a different palo or style with the first half an hour dedicated to the technique of both the right and left hands in flamenco guitar. At the beginning level, the students are instructed in the correct hand placement as well as the best way to strum the guitar. They also practice simple exercises such as arpegios, finger and thumb picking, strumming, tremolos, and alzapúas. At the intermediate/advanced level, students work with longer and more complex pieces as well as study the different scales (Major, Minor, methods of each, etc.).

After the first half-hour of class, the students are trained in the different palos or styles of flamenco such as Tangos, Fandangos de Huelva, Alegrías, Soleás, and more. At the beginning/intermediate level, the students study rhythm, short falcetas or variations, basic chords to accompany voice and some basic rhythms to accompany dance. At the intermediate/advanced level, students are instructed in guitar rhythm, more complex falcetas or variations and complete songs, as well as in the various accompaniments for the principal styles of singing and dancing.

There might be a change of teacher every two weeks.
