I first studied Flamenco guitar from age 9 in Córdoba Spain with my uncle Antonio (professional guitarist). I perform nationally and internationally with my sister Ana Dueñas León in our company Amor Flamenco (www.amorflamenco.co.uk).
I teach in the UK and Spain and give an authentic insight into Flamenco rhythms, accompaniment and techniques.
Many students new to Flamenco like to begin with well-known Rumba songs by the Gypsy Kings, this can be a fun way to develop some abilities which can be applied to Flamenco forms (palos) such as Tangos, Bulerias, Solea and more.
Enhanced by my ability to sing, my guidance is patient, encouraging and enjoyable. I can teach in English, Spanish, French and Italian. No formal musical training needed but not ideal for absolute beginners to the guitar. Please bring nylon-stringed guitar. I hold an Enhanced DBS certificate.
I teach private lessons, workshops (dance/cante accompaniment) and learning holidays in Granada, Spain. Next one 18th 25th May-2019 (www.cortijo-romero.co.uk). See details below.
My sister Ana and I teach Flamenco dance and guitar courses during the same week, dance and guitar classes are co-ordinated each study day providing a unique opportunity for dancers and guitarists to learn how these art forms interact.
Guitar students develop the crucial skills of solid rhythmic support needed to accompany dancers and singer (my sister and I sing for classes) along with the finesse and subtlety to play melodic variations (falsetas). Many of our UK and international students enjoy the week with us sharing learning, good food and lots of fun!
