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 medium. Learning is reinforced by demonstration, repetition, explanation and encouragement, which helps connect with the music in a more instinctive and intuitive way.

No prior knowledge of Flamenco, academic musical training or reading needed but some basic knowledge of guitar is useful. Please bring nylon-stringed guitar.

"The natural beauty of the area and the music and dance were moving while Cortijo itself and the warmth of the staff made it a wonderful wind down and letting go of a recent period of prolonged stress. It was life-enhancing!"
