Expert, relaxed, friendly, patient lessons with a performer, teacher, music critic, author. Thirty years experience as a classical guitar teacher and flamenco guitar teacher.
Within a short time you will learn how to play classical guitar and/or how to play flamenco guitar, and will be playing full and satisfying solo classical guitar pieces and/or authentic flamenco guitar music. All of my students play extremely well - so will you.
I give you a solid foundation of basic classical guitar and/or flamenco guitar technique, which prepares you to then move properly and more easily to intermediate and advanced music, and I focus on the kind of music you like best.
With classical guitar technique you will also be able to play any other kind of music you like - movie themes, Broadway songs, old standards, folk, ethnic, and popular music from any era. Also you will at the same time learn how to play and how to read music.
CLASSICAL - For classical guitar I teach in the famed tradition of the Madrid school, passing down all I learned from professors of classical guitar of the University of Madrid. You will learn to read music as you learn all of the techniques used in playing classical guitar.
FLAMENCO - Student for many years of the great virtuoso Mario Escudero, I teach in Mario's legacy of authentic traditional flamenco. You will learn all of the techniques used in flamenco, and just as importantly you will learn how to play the music and make it sound like flamenco.
