First of all, if you want to get an idea of my background, simply go to my professional Academic site at: www.wgerardpoole.com, it's all there.
I am currently putting together a program for "total immersion Flamenco", an approach that starts with the basic premise that you can't learn Flamenco correctly by studying its outward manifestations first, i.e: a guitar piece, a dance structure, a "song" (problematic concept in Flamenco). You must first study the forms and their components, and that begins with the rhythms.
To get you started however, we begin with the Rumba, an easy form with great flexibility and for the aspiring musician, great popular appeal. Just listen to the Gypsy Kings and that fact will become obvious to you.
For those of you who want to continue into the deeper levels of Flamenco, we go beyond the Rumba and into the 12 count forms.
