You will then learn a series of exercises to develop different aspects of the technique and build incremental understanding so you will have full ownership of the technique.
At the end of this course, you will learn a series of falsetas I created por Soleá. You will learn to apply your technique to one of the most important song forms in the art of flamenco.
