“I’ve been playing basic rock and folk guitar for decades but a couple of years ago I was called on to play a flamenco-style background during an amateur theatre production. This gave me an interest in learning it properly and a chance conversation in a pub resulted in someone saying “I can give you details of the best flamenco teacher in the country – Bob Hooper”. It turned out to be true! During the few months I’ve been learning with Bob he has opened up a whole new musical experience – after all these years it’s really stretching me and helping me to make some delightful and exciting music. His teaching technique is great – he finds out your interests and existing capabilities and gradually builds on these. I leave each lesson with an accessible but challenging piece of music written out in guitar tab and recorded on CD to demonstrate how it should sound. Highly recommended! – Ted Parker
