Whether you're a a curious beginner or seasoned musician looking for new tricks and inspiration, you'll discover a fascinating new dimension of the guitar in the world of flamenco. You'll explore first-hand the structures and rhythms that make flamenco work and uncover how flamenco dance, singing and guitar unite to create the passion and energy that we experience in flamenco.

You'll learn how flamenco dancers, singers, and guitarists communicate to deliver a breath-taking improvised performance. I'll guide you in the best places to see live flamenco performances during your stay. You'll walk away with the essential knowledge you need to fully appreciate your flamenco experience in Seville, tricks and techniques that will inspire your guitar playing in any style, and (who knows!) the first building blocks for your future as a flamenco guitarist.
I discovered flamenco guitar in my hometown of Richmond, Va (USA) and instantly became hooked. Six years ago I moved to Seville to pursue flamenco full-time and have been immersed in the flamenco world ever since.

Although attending a show is not part of the experience, I may see you there!
