Course Details

The Juan Martín Guitar Course will be held in 2021 between Saturday 4th September and Saturday 11th September at the Hotel Catalonia Reina Victoria, Ronda, Andalucia, Spain. All classes are taught or supervised by Juan Martín. Students should ideally arrive on Saturday 4th September so that they are ready to join the first lesson on Sunday 5th. There will be a morning daily 2 hour lesson plus a one hour the lesson in the afternoon. The lessons will be for 6 days so that the last one will be on Friday 10th leaving on the Saturday. We do not accept beginners and players should be able to play a piece from one of Juan’s books, for instance a solo from Solos Flamencos grades 0 to 1. As this is the tenth anniversary of the course we shall hold a concert with Juan Martín, the prize winning singer from La Unión Amparo Heredia and very flamenco and graceful dancer Luisa Chicano at the Ronda Peña ‘El Tobalo’ during the course.

As usual, we shall also arrange for a beginners flamenco dance class each morning for partners to participate in should they wish to. These are generally held at the local Peña Flamenca and taught by a very good local teacher. Please email us if you are interested.

From Málaga airport there is a short distance to the bus station from where there are buses up to Ronda costing approximately 11 euros. It is suggested that you arrive by early afternoon so that there are still buses running. Alternatively a taxi can be taken directly to Ronda and if others are arriving at a similar time we can try to arrange for you to share a minibus to the hotel. If you can fly to Gibraltar, take a taxi to the train station at San Roque where there are a few trains up to Ronda but we cannot confirm their schedule so the earlier you arrive, the better.
