I’m a non-traditional music student, so I was a little nervous starting music at such an “advanced” age. Eric makes every lesson interesting, but, more importantly, he makes them fun. We laugh a lot and I’ve learned so much in the short time I’ve been taking lessons. If he’s this good with an old lady, he must be fabulous with children. I highly recommend Eric for any aged student. Call him!

Private Flamenco Guitar Teacher

I have quite a few Flamenco students.

I generally teach traditional Flamenco, where you will learn the basic Flamenco techniques, strums, rhythms, and palos (styles).

I also teach Noveau Flamenco, which is a hybrid of pop/jazz/flamenco (see Jesse Cook, Ottmar Liebert, etc). If you're interested in learning this style, we'll still do some traditional flamenco to build a foundation, but we'll also examine specific songs, learn the theory behind the songwriting, and work on improvisation and songwriting.

Many of my flamenco students also love to work on a classical Spanish piece or two to improve their picado technique, and this is something I am also good at.

Most all lessons will end with a video tutorial made by me, tailored to your exact lesson so you have good direction on how/what to practice that week.

Jaxon called me a week before my lesson and asked what I wanted out of it. He then tailored his lessons for my specifically, giving me the music theory that I needed for my goal while also focusing on the guitar aspect of it, giving me valuable, actionable feedback that I've used. In only two lessons I feel far more comfortable at the fret board than I used to (I came in after several years of self teaching)

Alex is a very patient and down to earth teacher. I've had teachers before but none have helped me progress as fast as Alex. He is very knowledgeable and shows me what a wonderful instrument the guitar is. I'm always excited to play more after our lessons. Would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to pick up the guitar.

I've been Alex's student for over 3 years and I've definitely noticed how much of a great teacher he is. He is very resourceful and knowledgeable so he can teach a lot of different genres from classical to the pop songs we hear today. His ability to teach makes it easy for me to learn and understand songs and pieces. Not only that, Alex cares about my progress and makes sure that I'm not confused or lost about any of the material he teaches me. In my time with Alex, I've noticed how much progress I've made and definitely recommend him for anyone who's looking to learn how to play the guitar.

He knows how to teach, but he taught from his iPad, iPhone, in his car. I kept asking him how to draw, and he kept showing me from his iPad. This didn't translate to a good experience. If he wants to teach, he needs to do it NOT from his car.

Private Flamenco Guitar Lessons Near You

Flamenco is a type of rhythmic dance, accompanied by a particular style of music, that's native to Spain. Whether it's the brightly colored dresses, vibrant dance moves, or the unique tone of flamenco singing that draws you to flamenco guitar, taking flamenco guitar lessons can be a truly rewarding experience. 

Flamenco guitar is similar to classical guitar, but features a more staccato style of playing and a slightly different guitar anatomy. This prevents tonal muddiness when playing numerous notes in flamenco's signature staccato style. It's easy to fall in love with the sound and music of the flamenco guitar. Learning to play flamenco guitar and becoming a tacaordes (flamenco player) is fun, too! Perfecting the techniques (called toque) and tone of playing flamenco guitar, however, will require dedication, focus, lots of practice, and passion for the art of flamenco. 

Why Learn Flamenco Guitar?

Playing flamenco guitar requires tremendous dexterity. No flamenco player is born with this type of dexterity. Rather, it's developed as an aspiring musician learns and practices new techniques. As a result, flamenco players develop incredible strength and flexibility in their hands and arms. The development of the dexterity and muscle memory required for playing flamenco guitar, plus the ability to read music imparts a variety of additional benefits on those who play flamenco. Playing flamenco improves several important functions of the brain, such as memory, focus, listening abilities, and the ability to learn.

Playing flamenco guitar has also been shown to lower stress and blood pressure. Simply listening to flamenco music imparts positive benefits, such as reduced anxiety. As a result, picking up this instrument could lead to a healthier and happier heart.  

The Best Way to Learn Flamenco Guitar and What You'll Study

Although you can find plenty of free flamenco guitar classes online, learning with a private teacher is by far the best way. With immediate feedback, you'll overcome personal challenges and pick up new techniques fast. Plus, private teachers customize every lesson to your individual interests, learning abilities, and goals, so no two lessons are exactly alike. Flamenco guitar lessons for kids differ greatly in terms of course content and teaching style from flamenco guitar classes for adults. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Flamenco Guitar Lessons

If you have little or no previous experience playing flamenco guitar, then beginner lessons are for you. In beginner lessons, you'll be introduced to your flamenco guitar, basic guitar playing techniques, and you'll learn what makes flamenco guitar unique. Depending on your existing musical knowledge, your flamenco guitar tutor might choose to cover some of the following topics:  

  • Proper posture, hand position, and hold
  • Guitar anatomy, care, and tuning
  • Flamenco guitar terms
  • Basic chords and fingering
  • Reading guitar tablature and musical notation
  • Introduction to musical theory

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Flamenco Guitar Classes

In intermediate flamenco guitar classes, you'll be introduced to the styles and techniques that will allow you to achieve the sound and tonality that is unique to flamenco guitar. Plus, your physical ability to play and work through these techniques will improve as your hands and posture become stronger. Your flamenco guitar teacher might choose to cover some of the following topics:

  • Scales and Arpeggios
  • Flamenco styles and nails
  • Time signature and keeping rhythm
  • Modal and tonal harmonies
  • Flamenco techniques (picado, tremolo, golpe, rasgueado, etc.)
  • Using a capo

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Flamenco Guitar Lessons

Advanced flamenco guitar students should already be familiar with most of the techniques, styles, and nails of playing flamenco guitar. In advanced lessons, you'll work on perfecting your skills to reach virtuoso level. In advanced lessons, you'll develop an individual style and focus on overcoming your individual challenges to become the strongest player you can be. Course topics in advanced lessons depends greatly on the individual student's goals and interests, but your instructor might choose to cover the following topics:

  • Agility exercises
  • Improvisation and soloing
  • Composing and developing personal style
  • Audition coaching
  • Performance preparation
  • Music business counsel
