The captivating sound of the Flamenco guitar is unmistakeable. Rhythmic, percussive, melodic, haunting and intensely passionate, it is a pivotal element of an art form renowned for its fire, mystery, spirit and drama. The course gives an authentic insight into the rhythms, accompaniment, techniques, forms and their origins. Elusive traditions and conventions are demystified in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere, imparting confidence and a deeper understanding.

Flamenco guitar is part of an oral tradition and José’s teaching follows a time-tested method relying more on the ear than any written media. Learning is reinforced by demonstration, repetition, explanation and encouragement, which helps connect with the music in a more instinctive and intuitive way .

"Safe and relaxing atmosphere. Non-judgemental. Beautiful, peaceful location with ample grounds. Food provided was delicious and within my very restricted diet. (This is unusual for me). Friendly environment - always someone to chat to."
