Flamenco Guitar Courses
FOR THE TIME BEING WE HAVE SUSPENDED THESE CLASSES.
WE HOPE TO START THEM AGAIN IN 2021.
Here our the details from our last Flamenco Guitar Course, which gives you useful information.
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. You need 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.
TIMES: 5.30pm - 7.30pm
PRICES: £70 for full 6 week course or £15 weekly
