course information

The mystery of compás is the main task for all aficionaos of flamenco.

Hand clapping (compás&palmas) is a private course that gives you the chance to learn the accents and metrical structure of flamenco, aspects that can sometimes be a bit complicated.

The mastery of compás is fundamental for the practice of flamenco: rhythms, setbacks, structure of the singing, guitar and dance in order to accompany …

Only by internalizing these structures and rhythms will we be able to improvise on music.

Lessons are offered for all levels and they are a perfect complement of any other guitar or dance course.

For beginner levels you will start by learning the placement of the palms of the hands to get the right sound. You will learn to differentiate between a clap with an open palm or accompanying with the deaf palms, as well as when to use one or the other type.

You will be able to differentiate the palos through their metric structure, as for example the Tangos of 4 times, or all those that are governed by measures of 12 times, such as the Soleá, the Alegrías, Bulerías, Guajiras...
