MANUAL for UNDERSTANDING FLAMENCO

20 Nov MANUAL for UNDERSTANDING FLAMENCO

IF WE WANT TO LEARN AND UNDERSTAND FLAMENCO, HOW WILL WE DO IT? WHAT DO WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ITS AUTHENTICITY? HOW CAN WE HELP FLAMENCO DEVELOP ITS FULLEST POTENTIAL?

– Anachronistically or disruptively? Academically or emotionally?

– By incorporating all the principles, pedagogical, didactical and neuroscience knowledge that we have at our disposal today?

– With the tools offered by the new technologies and methods that are used for music in the most modern conservatories in the world?

POTENTIALITIES          

The means to achieve prosperous and healthy flamenco is by aligning with the attributes of innovation, rich cultural diversity, and creative energy. By assuring its authenticity in relation to its dissemination and promotion, we can generate a cultural activity that results in economic well-being for its practitioners and hosts.

We start by creating excellent conditions for the diffusion and teaching of flamenco through our very specific sequence of courses. Multiple pedagogical programs that complement each other also allow students to discover flamenco,  as an art, to its fullest. This wonderful musical journey will increase the degree of enjoyment and satisfaction of the people who choose to pursue its history and methodology. According to current cultural anthropology thought, the local is reflected at a global level, and the local responds to global demand.

He is a singer, composer, writer and historian who specializes in the unique cadences and rhythms that are the foundation of flamenco music. He has gained international recognition as an innovator whose voice and compositions reveal the “melody” inherent in Spanish literature and poetry. On the vanguard of integrating the traditions of flamenco with new approaches to teaching, Fernando is the author of “Flamenco en las Aulas.” He has contributed to dozens of periodicals, social media and websites. Fernando is a cultural ambassador from Andalusia, now based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. As an invited member of the International Dance Council of UNESCO, he actively promotes the preservation of dance around the world.
