My job is to familiarize you with the methods guitarists in Spain use to build technique, rhythm and right hand/left hand coordination, and build good habits. You will learn flamenco from within the arte, not just as a solo guitar style outside the ambiente. To play flamenco authentically is extremely challenging, and since we are in a vacuum outside of the true envirnment, it may mean undoing bad habits, or totally changing your approach to how you learn. This may mean several steps backward before going forward. In the end, your ability to learn passages should quicken, because you know the guitar better physically, and have developed better rhythm.
This class programming has been made possible in part with public funds from the NYC Dept. of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
