One to one Guitar Making Course

This unique intensive course gives those students who want individual tuition the opportunity to construct a Spanish guitar to their own specifications, whether they are beginners or have made guitars in the past. For those with more experience there will be the opportunity to concentrate on specific aspects of making that are challenging and learn ways to overcome and enhance their work.

In this Spanish guitar making course the student will construct a classical or flamenco guitar from planks of wood without using kits or any pre-fabricated components.

In this One to One Spanish guitar making course the student will build a classical or a flamenco guitar using traditional construction techniques. This will include building with a Solera mould, the Spanish neck/body join and bracing systems and making a rosette to your own design.

During the course we will also be discussing subjects that include timber selection, construction systems, jig making, varnishes and tools.

As this is a one to one course please contact Pablo to discuss what dates are most convenient.

The cost of the one to one guitar making course is £4,900 which includes materials, but not accommodation.

An initial deposit of £500 will be required to secure a place on the course, a second payment of £1,500 is to be paid before the end of the month prior to the course and the final payment of £2,900 will be paid at the beginning of the course.

The course runs for 4 weeks and in that time the student will build a classical or a flamenco guitar from scratch using only raw materials without using pre-fabricated components.
