The artists / teachers:

Manuel Montero - Guitar
Professional flamenco and classical guitarist, his work as a musical director, composer, and arranger has led him to perform in more than 20 countries within diverse projects ranging from flamenco, in its variety of expressions, to Latin American music, electronic music, classical music, world music and jazz among others. He has been recognised with 8 international prizes as a guitarist and composer. Originally from Costa Rica, Manuel has lived in Seville, Spain during the last 18 years.
"In Manuel Montero we find flamenco, elegance, a remarkable technique, and a total mastery of the classic Spanish guitar, allowing him to be perfectly compared with Sanlúcar, Riqueni, Vicente Amigo, and even if it could be thought as a blasphemy to compare him with the greatest maestro Paco de Lucía, his influences are undoubted, especially in his virtuoso technique and his outstanding elegance" Jondoweb
