It is the mission of the Contemporary Flamenco Guitar Studio, an emerging musical institution sponsored and managed by a committee of flamenco music knowers from Spain and Canada in colaboration with flamenco guitar player and composer Ruben Diaz, to spread this art and convey this knowledge to non-spanish speaking musicians and people in general interested in this musical field through one on one lessons and the use of innovative technology, which is our most important activity: web-cam lessons to students around the world.<br /><br />The exclusive purpose of the CFG-studio Grants is to encourage & render available to the whole public worldwide the culture of contemporary flamenco guitar, specifically the works related to Paco de Lucia's contributions and innovations on the Spanish & compositional musical field as well as in the Flamenco-Jazz realm for guitar players, guitar teachers, composers and beyond.
