I teach Flamenco guitar in Brighton/Hove and the surrounding area,
Classes are relaxed and friendly with patient, encouraging guidance giving an authentic insight into the rhythms, accompaniment, techniques, forms and their origins:
Solea, Bulerias, Alegrias, Tangos, Rumba and well known Gipsy Kings songs eg.Volare, Bamboleo etc.
No prior knowledge of Flamenco or academic musical training needed but some basic knowledge of guitar is useful. Please bring nylon-stringed guitar.
Face to face lessons (socially distanced) or online via Zoom/Skype/WhatsApp etc are £30/hour. I also offer workshops, shared lessons and gift vouchers. I hold an enhanced DBS certificate (previously known as CRB cert.).
In addition I teach 1 week courses every year in the idyllic mountains of Granada in Spain at Cortijo Romero. please see pic of write up in Sunday Times.
This year's course is from 26th September to 3rd October 2020 (https://www.cortijo-romero.co.uk/courses/course.aspx?id=2436&name=Learn+Flamenco+Guitar).
My sister Ana Dueñas León teaches a Flamenco dance course during the same week, dance and guitar classes are co-ordinated each study day providing a unique opportunity for dancers and guitarists to learn how these art forms interact .Guitar students develop the crucial skills of solid rhythmic support needed to accompany dancers and singer ( my sister and I sing for classes) along with the finesse and subtlety to play melodic variations (falsetas). Many of our UK and interenational students enjoy the week with us sharing learning, good food and lots of fun!
I first studied Flamenco guitar from a young age in Córdoba Spain with my uncle Antonio (professional guitarist). I perform nationally and internationally with my sister Ana Dueñas León in our company Amor Flamenco (www.amorflamenco.co.uk).
In recent years Amor Flamenco have performed at The Pavilion Theatres in Brighton and Worthing, Winchester Cathedral, The Hawth, Crawley , The Saatchi Gallery London and The Khalifa Stadium Qatar amongst many others.
I have a passion for writing music and songs (Latin, Flamenco and other genres) many of which appear in top USA TV/Films such as Better Call Saul, Gotham, Ugly Betty, Pretty Little Liars, True Memoirs of An International Assasin. Drunk Wedding, Queen of the South, The Glades, Mistresses, Los Bandoleros (Vin Diesel) and more (www.joseLeonMusic.com).
