    Rene is a great teacher and musical mentor. My guitar playing has vastly improved since I began studying with him three years ago. I would recommend him and his school for any one interested in learning flamenco and classical guitar and dance.

    I just moved here and for some reason had trouble finding someone that would teach what I wanted in the Chicago area. Rene is starting me at a good fundamental level and knows how to teach and play guitar.

About this pro

I been teaching Classical Guitar for many years and studied three and half years in Paris France with Antonio Francisco Serra, who was a direct student of Emilio Pujol from the Francisco Tarrega School. I also teach flamenco guitar and flamenco and Spanish dance for over 50 years. I am originally from Granada, Spain and I am a direct descendant of the gitano flamenco puro tradition as passed down to me by generations of my gypsy family. I have performed with the greatest flamenco artists of all time including Carlos Montoya, Carmen Amaya, Sabicas, José Greco, Paco de Lucia, Mario Escudero and many others. I new many of the fine classical guitarist as well: Andres Segovia, Christopher Parkening, Alirio Diaz, Narciso Yepes, Juan Mercandal, Pepe Romero, Angel Romero. As a performer, teacher, choreographer, mentor, and recording artist, I have been credited with bringing flamenco & Classical guitar to Colorado back in 1967. I helped start the Classical Guitar Society of Denver and the Guitar Department at the University of Denver and other Universities I have received numerous awards, including the Governor’s and Mayor’s Awards for Excellence in the Arts. I enjoy sharing my knowledge, technique and passion for the guitar. I also enjoy teaching Spanish gypsy flamenco music and dance with my students.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      $60.00 per hour. $30.00 per half hour. Private lessons one on one is the best way to learn. In group lessons you lose allot.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      Yes. I'm always playing and learning more each day about the guitar. You never can learn enough about the guitar.
    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      I've been doing teaching since I was 18 years old. And I want to pass on what I know to others that are interest in learning the correct way to play guitar.
