Nicolas started his classical guitar studies in Belgrade and continued on to the Conservatorio Superior de Música de Málaga. He studied in Andalusia in the class of professor Javier Chamizo, while he attended many famous guitarist’s Master Classes. As a young artist and performer, he started to collaborate with different artists of different genres. Not just from Spain, but from all over the world. During that period he also started to compose and produce his own music. He finished Classical Guitar studies at the Conservatori del Liceu de Barcelona, in the class of a conservatory principal, composer, performer, and maestro Jaume Torrent. After graduation, Nicolas continues performing, composing, and producing flamenco, but also teaching both flamenco and classical guitar…
He collaborated with flamenco artists in Andalusia while studying classical music. During that period he was traveling all over the Mediterranean coastline and living in a very multinational environment. He was teaching flamenco guitar simultaneously to people from all over the world. All these factors enabled him to frame all the gathered knowledge into the most global perspective. Nicolas obtained an absolutely unique approach to Spanish guitar techniques. While touring and composing flamenco, Nicolas also obtained an educational background in classical music. He sometimes even lived a nomadic life with the Gypsies. So, Nicolas gradually became the virtuoso performer he is today. Almost 4 decades of exploration of the Spanish Guitar national heritage resulted in the creation of the “spanishguitarschool.com” website…
Probably the most important point of his career was the performance with his group Nicolas Y La Banda Flamenca. As an opening act for Paco de Lucia Band at Guitar Art Festival in 2010th.
Nicolas started contact with the father of flamenco actually at the concert after parties in 2007th, and 2008th. But the mutual concerts in 2010th and 2012th were the absolute turning points in Nicolas’s artistic career. Then Nicolas became the artist he is today, and that contact with Paco literally shaped his entire musical perspective. Today he composes, performs, and teaches flamenco all across the Mediterranean…

Dear Nicolas – Currently studying your Bulerias Lessons. Just great. Thank you.
Thank you Nicolas.
Today I want to update on how I have been using your Bulerias Lessons materials.
My testimony is for any student who, like me, once heard the buleria form, and then felt compelled to learn this beautiful, memerizing, irrisistible thing.
As of February 7, 2020, I am now able to play the first version – from 1:57 on “Bulerias – Basic Pattern ‘por medio'” – on the 2nd video in the buleria lessons playlist, using the recorded loops for timing.
I started with the “Bulerias Cajon Palmas 66bpm” loop.
I find this particular percussion loop very useful and a nice tempo for a beginner to start, essential for my practice, and for making progress.
Again, thank you for shining this light on my buleria pathway.
I hope to update again soon.

Awesome, I am so glad U found the loop that suits you the best..!
Great! Let’s can continue this chat on the Bulerias page, better…
Estoy buscando el playlist de Flamenco music y no lo encuetro. Donde esta la lista de la canciones que recomiendas usted para entrenar el oido al estilo de Flamenco?
(I’m looking for the Flamenco music playlist and I can’t find it. Where is the list of songs that you recommend to train the ear in the Flamenco style?)
There is a HUGE GUITAR BLOG on the website, with 100 VIDEO YT LINKS, but also my comments on the songs and artists/bands. It will really take you deep into the world of flamenco, like very few other things out there. I am really proud of how it turned out:
Todo este website esta fenomenal. En un para de meses mi guitarra Alhambra 4F va estar gritanto la bulerias. Gracias por esta plataforma me voy a aprender.
(This whole website is phenomenal. In a couple of months, my Alhambra 4F guitar will be screaming the bulerias. Thanks to this platform I’m going to learn.)
Dear members, let’s please keep the questions related to the determined content on their appropriate pages. Thank you!
