(Learn Flamenco Guitar & , or Strengthen your Toque) - Receive Lessons in the convenience your own home or @ my SF or Cotati residence/studio -
My Name is David Jenkins (“El Oso”). For the past 40 (+) years I have performed in the U.S., India, Romania. Spain and Mexico. Back in the years of the renowned Old Spaghetti Factory I received my initial instruction from mega-talented Lionel James, one of the only known students of Sabicas.
My Flamenco teaching approach is to start with (or review) a well-structured regime of how to execute the physical techniques that are essential for being able to play flamenco guitar (Picado, Tremelo, Rasgueados, Arpegios and Alza púa).
Once a student demonstrates the beginning stages of technical competence, I lead my students through the many “Palos” (forms) which then provides students with direct access to reproducing the tantalizing rhythms and melodies so mysteriously embodied in the form.
