General Notions of CFG-studio Study Program


Does the student needs the teacher or other way around?


No difference between webcam lessons and lessons at the studio


There are 3 different basic general topics that are part of CFG-studio Program:

1) Technique: Systematic and progressive approach to the many different scales fingerings, arpeggios exercises, left hand elasticity and strength exercises as well as other flamenco technical resources like Alzapúa at different metronomical speeds  and difficulty levels. This will help you to perform the repertoire in a more effective and clean way.

2) Rhythmic: Systematic and progressive approach to the different flamenco genders (palos) strumming patterns, variations of the strumming patterns and their usages into the compás. A very important part of this topic is the remates, how to perform them, how many kinds of remates exist and how to apply them in the different flamenco contexts which includes flamenco soloing and cante accompaniment.

3) Repertoire (which includes the 2 first as part of it's performance): Systematic and progressive approach to the different musical pieces of Paco de Lucía repertoire and gypsy line of flamenco (falsetas) according to the student level.

These 3 topics are managed into 9 levels which are:

1) Beginners 1,2 & 3.
2) Intermediate 1,2 & 3.
3) Advanced 1,2 & 3.

They are complementary but not compulsory although it is compulsory to have the technical and rhythmic resources needed to play a specific musical piece of the repertoire. This will be determined through the technical and rhythmical progress of the student or, in certain cases, through a personal interview. You can learn only technique, only rhythmic or only repertoire, although -in the last case- CFG-studio will proceed as was described above.

Then there are other optional topics:

1) Harmony Applied to Flamenco
2) Improvisation (Rhythmically and Melodically)
3) Composition
