The Ronda International Guitar Festival is an annual week-long festival dedicated to music and the Spanish Guitar. The Spanish guitar is a beautiful instrument born and developed in Spain. It is a world ambassador of Spanish music. We are delighted to celebrate in Ronda, the treasure and legacy that is the Spanish guitar; a great promoter of Spanish culture!
At Ronda Guitar House we celebrate the art of Spanish music and culture. Our resident international concert guitarist, Paco Seco, performs concerts every evening in an atmospheric and acoustically rich setting. A programme dedicated to music from the Romantic & Baroque periods up to modern day contemporary Andaluz & Flamenco styles. Learn about the history of the Spanish guitar and the pieces played.
Flamenco master Paco Seco gives a unique class, suitable to both Flamenco and classical guitarists.
His class will be dedicated to a range of guitar techniques & the daily discipline of practising. Paco will explain the intricacies of Flamenco rhythms to achieve a better understanding of the rhythmic structure of classical pieces based on Flamenco such as the work of Spanish composers Turina, Albeniz, Granados and Rodrigo. He will also work on typical Flamenco techniques such as Rasgueado and make those accessible to classical players.
