6 week Flamenco Guitar Course
Friday 17 January - 21 February
Our Flamenco courses are run in conjunction with our dance classes and are also held at Rose Hill C.C. (see address and directions below). Taught by Camino del Flamenco's head guitarist, Matt Sullivan, these classes teach the basic techniques needed to play flamenco guitar, razguedo, arpeggio, picado etc.
You will also learn the chord shapes and some of the theory behind flamenco concentrating on the altered Phrygian mode and introduced to the different palos (styles of song) used in flamenco with the emphasis on the rhythms necessary for accompanying dancers. As part of this course you will have the opportunity to play for dancers.
To join this course you must have a reasonable ability to play guitar including playing open chords with confidence, as well as an understanding of scales. The ability to read a chord chart would be beneficial, though not essential as all chords will be demonstrated. Sight reading is not necessary but some transcriptions could be made available if requested. Notes for all the sessions will be available weekly. You will need a flamenco or classical guitar.
A capo and a footstool would be useful though not essential. The tutor is happy for students to record or film any demonstrations for further personal study.
TIMES: 5.30pm - 7.30pm
PRICES: £70 for full 6 week course or £15 weekly
