Classes for intro students

As another friend takes off to Spain for a flamenco holiday, your happiness is perhaps tempered with the knowledge that you may not be able to participate in a similar opportunity any time soon. Such a trip could be personally prohibitive for any number of reasons: time, finances, or perhaps feeling you are just not good enough yet. But what if Spain were to come to you? What would you have to lose? And if it arrived at your doorstep, what would it look like?

According to Cristina Bermudez, who has been a part of the Atlanta flamenco community for nearly a decade, it would look a lot like The Flamenco Completo workshop, which is coming to Atlanta in September. And what’s more, she would be the first to say there is everything to gain by Flamenco Completo’s immersion. Read More »

The Whole Thing is “ON”

Calling all guitarists (and other string players) to try playing in flamenco style. By Rina Menosky UPDATED MAY 16, 2011

From few yards away, they sure look the same — but they sure sound different. Is it like the famous song by George and Ira Gershwin in 1937, (popularized further by Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald later): “I say ‘tomato’…you say ‘tomahto’…I say ‘potato’…you say ‘potahto’…?” Read More »

Taylor Guitar Blog

Posted by admin - November 10th, 2010

Check out Bob Taylor’s Official Taylor Guitar Blog.
Marija Temo recently returned from the Taylor Guitar Factory invited by Bob Taylor to be a part of his latest venture in learning to build a classical guitar. It was thrilling to watch he and his team build a classical guitar as well as apply Bob Taylor’s NT guitar neck to them.  Pepe Romero Jr. was the luthier to help guide in the building process.  Marija Temo and Pepe Romero Sr. played and checked out the different types of classical guitars built that week.  Writer’s from Acousic Guitar Magazine also showed up and Marija was videod by them performing a few numbers.  It was a wonderful week.  Bob Taylor wrote about the experience and made some beautiful comments about Marija in his Taylor Guitar Blog.  Also, check out some photos that will be posted soon on Marija’s Facebook Fan Page.

Comment from Deb Barker, GE Executive

Posted by admin - November 10th, 2010

Comment from Deb Barker, GE Executive, about Marija Temo, which is currently posted under the GE/Taylor Guitar YouTube clip

“Hi, this is Deb Barker. There’s been a lot of curiosity about me and my body double in the GE Capital/Taylor commercial. Marija Temo is phenomenal Flamenco player, and she was delighted to help us by capturing your imagination in that awesome riff (same technology as Avatar used to transpose my head on her body). Marija and I are hearing the commercial has inspired people to play – What’s better than that? Please keep supporting the Music industry, they need you – Peace!”
