SG1 Start Date: To be announced
Welcome to the website of Manchester‐based flamenco guitarist and teacher Nick Wilkinson. Having studied flamenco guitar at Rotterdams Conservatorium, during the 1990s, under the guidance of one of the the world's finest players Paco Peña, I now present to you with the opportunity to follow a similar course of development with the assistance of online lessons using Zoom. Here at 123flamenco.com you will find a variety of flamenco courses available. Course descriptions can be found in the drop-down menu at the top of the page.
Future courses may appeal to a wide range of people, including dance students and aficionados keen to expand their knowledge of flamenco. Please check back every now and then to see when new courses become available. I am also available for workshops, performances and private lessons. For all enquiries email: email@example.com
Primera Soleá (Study Piece) by Nick Wilkinson
Some parts of this soleares were written in the style of 'Niño Ricardo'. Basic techniques are combined, alongside standard compás variations, to provide an example of how to structure your own soleares. You will learn how to do this on the foundation course. In writing this piece, it was also my intention to illustrate typical melodic phrasing and commonly recurring themes used in flamenco.
