The flamenco guitar courses aim to train accompaniment guitarists, both for singing and for dance. Classes are taught in homogeneous groups which allow students to learn technique, as well as the knowledge and techniques of accompaniment flamenco guitar. The Guitar department includes an extraordinary team of teachers such as Paco Cortés, Niño de Pura, Pedro Sierra, Pedro Sánchez, Pedro Barragán and Carmelo Picón amongst other guitarists representing all classical and contemporary styles.

The Study Program consists of three courses – 1st (Basic), 2nd (Intermediate) and 3rd (Advanced) – and their levels and aims might vary from year to year. It includes eight subjects (Theory and Practice), delivered in FOUR/FIVE DAILY BLOCKS. As students pass every course, they will receive a certificate confirming their grades, contact hours, and level of artistic interpretation.

The academic plan will incorporate, from 2018, new subjects for students of more advanced level: improvisation sessions, choreographic workshops, stage practice, musical production and the subject “Emotional intelligence in the artist”, taught by José Antonio Galiani.

These are our Guitar levels:

1st ANNUAL FLAMENCO GUITAR COURSE (Basic Level)


The aim of the First Annual Flamenco Guitar course (Basic Level) is to introduce students to the fundamentals of the technique of accompanying singing and dance, through studying the rhythmic styles and simple "falsetas" (solo variations for the guitar), complemented by the study of traditional techniques to accompany alegrías and tangos dances.

The academic program includes eight subjects (Theory and Practice), delivered in FOUR/FIVE DAILY BLOCKS. There are four Core subjects in Level 1 Flamenco Guitar (shared by all specialisations) one of which is an Elective.

 

Teachers:

Throughout the annual course, students in the Level 1 Flamenco Guitar will take classes with Paco Cortés, Pedro Sánchez, Pedro Barragán, Carmelo Picón, Patricia Lozano, Kaveh Nasehi and Pepa Sánchez.

The teaching staff of the Cristina Heeren Foundation of Flamenco Art’s school is subject to changes and updates, as required by professional commitments and academic needs.

Level 1 Flamenco Guitar:

Students in Level 1 Flamenco Guitar will be beginners, who do not know the flamenco rhythms and who have never accompanied live singing or dancing.

On the other hand, to be admitted to the Basic Course it is essential to know how to play other styles of music with the guitar (classical, jazz, rock, pop, etc.), since the purpose of the course is to teach to play flamenco guitar and under no circumstances is it to teach to play the instrument. The student who chooses the Flamenco Guitar Basic Course within the annual program should be capable of performing the following in the placement tests:

• Simple strumming (rasgueados)

• Arpeggios

• Basic chords

• Previous musical experience with flamenco or any other music genre.


SCHEDULE AND LOCATION

The class schedule is from Monday to Friday, from 8:30am to 3:15pm and Fridays from 9am to 2pm.


Location: Calle Pureza, 76 Triana (Seville)

2nd ANNUAL FLAMENCO GUITAR COURSE (Intermediate Level)

The aim of the Second Flamenco Guitar Course (Intermediate Level) is to consolidate the knowledge of the accompanying singing and to deepen in the fundamentals of accompanying dance, through studying the structures, falsetas, classical "escobillas" (the specific footwork to be accompanied) and other techniques. In every session there will be live singing and dance. Technique and rhythm lessons will support the needs of the accompanying guitar and initiate students to solo guitar.

The academic program includes eight subjects (Theory and Practice), delivered in FOUR/FIVE DAILY BLOCKS. There are four Core subjects in Level 2 Flamenco Guitar (shared by all specialisations) one of which is an Elective.

 

Teachers:

Throughout the annual course, students in Level 2 Guitar will take classes with Pedro Sierra, Paco Cortés, Pedro Sánchez, Pedro Barragán, Carmelo Picón, Patricia Lozano, Kaveh Nasehi and Pepa Sánchez.

The teaching staff of the Cristina Heeren Foundation of Flamenco Art’s school is subject to changes and updates, as required by professional commitments and academic needs.

Level 2 Flamenco Guitar:

Students can enrol in Level 2 Flamenco Guitar if they have passed all subjects in Level 1 Flamenco Guitar in the Cristina Heeren Foundation or can adequately demonstrate in the placement tests sufficient knowledge of technique and rhythm and be able to accompany singing fandangos (from Huelva as well as abandolaos), verdiales, caña, cantiñas and tangos.

SCHEDULE AND LOCATION

3rd ANNUAL FLAMENCO GUITAR COURSE (Advanced Level)


The aim of the Third Flamenco Guitar Course (Advanced Level) is to complete the professional training of the students as accompaniment guitarists for singing and dance, in such a way that each student is able to immediately accompany singers and dancers without the need to rehearse, as is usually the case in tablaos, peñas and festivals. In every session there will be live singing and dance. Technique lessons will be targeted to reinforce solo playing, as well as improving technique for accompaniment.

The academic program includes eight subjects (Theory and Practice), delivered in FOUR/FIVE DAILY BLOCKS. There are four Core subjects in Level 3 Flamenco Guitar (shared by all specialisations) one of which is an Elective.
