Intermediate and Advanced Guitarists (Suzuki Guitar Book 3+ or equivalent)
Ages 10+ (including adults)
Learn the basics of flamenco guitar including common dance forms (Soleares, Farruca, Alegrias, Tangos, Rumba, Siquiriyas, Bulerias); strumming patterns using all your right hand fingers (rasqueado), falsetas (melodic solos), and techniques such as ligado (slurs), alzapua (thumb bass lines combined with thumb strums), and picado (fast scales). Great for classical guitar students wanting to get an insight into the dances that influenced post Romantic Spanish composers such as DeFalla, Albeniz, and Granados. Students should be able to play some basic first position chords and how to change easily from one chord to another prior to taking this class. Note: Tuition for students taking this class together with private lessons is $248 (members)/$275 (public).
