“An inspiring workshop! Three young guitarists and a dozen members of the audience were guided through the history and musical intricacies of flamenco. Their one hour session was concluded with a spirited performance from both the Guitarists and, acting as the percussion section, the Audience.”  

- The University of Leeds

 

"Undoubtedly the most informative and engaging workshop I’ve ever attended delivered with a commanding knowledge of subject and deep understanding of the mysteries and techniques of flamenco music and culture. Samuel’s clarity in teaching method challenged and engaged us all fully throughout the evening linking authentic and powerful guitar techniques to the classical guitar repertoire, not to mention a buzzing atmosphere. His generosity in leaving us all with a comprehensive booklet of his material used was greatly appreciated as was his closing video demonstration for participants to take away. Many thanks Samuel for a wonderful evening."

“On Saturday October 20th 2018, Chester Guitar Circle and Liverpool Guitar Society organised a flamenco workshop and concert featuring the expert guidance and performance skills of the celebrated flamenco guitarist, Samuel Moore ... Taking us through various rasguedo styles, clearly and methodically, he managed to show us the essence of the mystique surrounding the flamenco guitarist’s right hand facility. Samuel rounded off the session with illustrations of how to apply rasguedo styles to Manuel de Falla’s Miller’s Dance. The time seemed to go all too quickly and at the end of the session, Samuel presented each member of the group with a bound summary of the exercises we had practiced during the afternoon. We all benefited enormously from Samuel’s excellent teaching techniques and gained some insight into an art form guitarists often consider to be bewildering and mysterious. … With the workshop over, a further amazing experience was to follow in nearby St Mary’s church. Samuel treated an audience to a fiery flamenco guitar recital covering many of the flamenco forms he had talked about in the afternoon. He introduced each piece by explaining its origins, structure and relationship to dance and songs. An appreciative audience was left spellbound and after hearty applause, departed with the sounds of Spain nostalgically transporting them to a cosy bar in Andalucia. We wish to thank Samuel once again for a rewarding and enlightening experience!”

He is always thoroughly prepared and has a relaxed and encouraging teaching style with clear teaching objectives that build the student's understanding step by step with precise instruction to ensure a firm foundation for future progression.”
