Learn Flamenco Guitar

Teaching Flamenco Guitar   

Chris Clavo..
I’m passionate about passing on the knowledge, experience gained over 25 years of playing and studying flamenco guitar – the most exiting and vibrant style of guitar playing ever invented. I teach the full range of solo flamenco guitar styles as well as accompaniment of flamenco dance & singing  – all with an emphasis on understanding the deep roots and evolving musical language of flamenco.

I’ve been teaching flamenco guitar for over ten years including both one-on-one lessons and group workshops and now have a large library of teaching resources and a flexible syllabus to help students progress from never having played before to advanced flamenco repatoire & technique.

Classes will cover..
• A repertoire of classic and contemporary flamenco styles & falsetas
• Modern flamenco technique for left & right hands
• Studies and exercises designed to reinforce the compas or rhythm
• How to improvise and turn your own musical ideas into flamenco
• How to accompany flamenco dancers and singers
• How to create amazing flamenco guitar solos

My Journey..

I started out playing a variety of instruments and singing with street-theatre & circus artists in London, Paris and Amsterdam. In 1992 I began my journey into flamenco guitar & lived in Spain throughout the 90s where I had the chance to study with some of the modern masters of flamenco guitar – Gerado Nuñez, Manolo Sanlucar, Carlos Heredia & Diego Amaya.

I am now based in London and continue to work as musical director of Flamenco Express touring in the UK & Europe. As a composer/producer I have written and recorded scores for film, TV, contemporary dance and theatre including work with Granada TV, Channel 4 Films, The Young Vic, Cirque du Soleil, and the Royal Shakespeare Company.
