La guitarra flamenca: arte musical al alcance de tus manos

Juan Manuel Ávila, a teacher of flamenco guitar in Barcelona, ​​was born in Granada and has a degree in classical and flamenco guitar from the Conservatorio Superior del Liceo de Barcelona. He is also founder and director of the Juan Manuel Ávila School of Flamenco Guitar in Barcelona. After 20 years teaching thousands of students from all over the world, and of all levels, he has created the Ávila Method for flamenco guitar, which is the progressive method he uses to teach all his students in the last 20 years. He also regularly performs solo guitar concerts both in the city of Barcelona and throughout Europe.

I don't know

The Juan Manuel Ávila flamenco guitar school in Barcelona began its journey in 2000, and since then thousands of students have passed and an infinite number of projects have been created, both amateur and professional. Students who are professionals today have been trained in it both in the world of entertainment and in the world of pedagogy. At school only Juan Manuel Ávila himself teaches, so there is a limited number of students. In his school all subjects are played, both instrument and harmony, and an instrumental ensemble or musical theory is also performed.

His area of ​​expertise is the concert guitar and the instrument individually apart from flamenco singing and dancing. At school, the guitar takes center stage individually, so the technique, musical theory, composition and all the necessary tools for a concert guitarist are worked on, who can later choose their own path with all the knowledge .

Juan Manuel, what motivated you to do this job?

I was a guitarist who worked in flamenco tablaos and various flamenco companies in Barcelona, ​​an activity that, at the age of 20, I combined with my studies at the conservatory and teaching flamenco guitar. The success of those classes that I started doing in my own home was such that I had to open a school to be able to attend to so many students.

There is where to discover my true vocation: pedagogy. Starting to teach a student from scratch and after years of studying with me, seeing him play on stage seems like an exciting process. I dedicate all my effort and all my passion to teach my students everything so that they can develop their full potential.

I don't know

Juan Manuel, how did you get to configure the Ávila method? What theoretical bases support your method?

The Ávila method is the fruit of 20 years teaching students of very different profiles, different ages, different countries, in short it is a method configured for anyone who wants to play the guitar regardless of their level. It is intended that the student can achieve all his objectives in a progressive way, understanding all the concepts, from the most basic to the most advanced.

With the Ávila method, the student gets all the elements, the guitar technique, the musical theory necessary for the instrument. In short, all the knowledge is provided to the student in such a way that they settle down and become a good tool for musical expression.

What strategies are of fundamental importance to develop the Ávila Method?

Above all, the strategy consists of the total understanding of everything that has to be studied at all times. Studying with a metronome as a rhythmic base is important for the student to understand both the flamenco guitar technique and the rhythm of each style, music as important in general, but of vital importance in flamenco.

The rhythm is worked from the beginning and is strictly understood in each style, so the student can defend himself later in the three schools of flamenco guitar, accompaniment to cante, accompaniment to dance, and concert guitar.

I don't know

What is new about your method of playing flamenco guitar?

The novelty in the method is the total understanding of each style in terms of technique, harmony with the history and culture of flamenco in a practical way, since it is applied directly in the method, providing the student with the essential codes to understand the Flemish.

What essential qualities must a participant have to start in your school to learn guitar? In other words, what is the entry profile for guitar courses?

I don't know

The profile to enter the guitar courses is very varied, but above all they must have an indispensable quality: the interest in learning whatever the age.

No prior knowledge is necessary. The courses are for students who start from scratch, as well as for advanced students who want to expand their knowledge. For me they are all students they are just as exciting!
