“What a wonderful experience this has been! The staff at the school were very kind and helpful and tried their utmost to answer all my questions. My teacher Manuel was superb and managed to communicate what i had to play in a simple and straightforward way. I was also very impressed by the fact that he tabbed all of the lessons for me and even recorded the songs so i can practise them. Lessons progressed at a suitable pace and i was given the choice of flamenco styles i wanted to learn. This course has certainly inspired me to continue studying flamenco guitar and I shall seriously consider taking more classes in the future.” – E Bell, UK
