HAVE YOU EVER SAID TO YOURSELF: "I WOULD LOVE TO PLAY FLAMENCO ON THE PIANO, I'M PASSIONATE ABOUT IT, IT SEEMS FASCINATING BUT..."
Do you recognize yourself in any of these situations?
Don’t worry, it’s normal!
Well, here you have a musician who makes a living from flamenco, both as a gypsy and an Andalusian, ready to debunk (Desmontar) all those beliefs or excuses we make to avoid discovering this wonderful and powerful music.
Throughout my career, I have encountered great pianists with an incredible technique that is beyond my reach, especially in classical music and jazz. It’s interesting to note that a significant number of artists who are passionate about flamenco or have a great interest in our art share the same false beliefs I mentioned earlier.
FREE YOURSELF FROM MENTAL BRAKES AND LEARN TO PLAY FLAMENCO PIANO WITH ONE OF THE BEST SPECIALISTS IN THE WORLD.
It is true that it is not easy to find material to study flamenco and even less for piano, besides, everything I have seen is always imitating the guitar, which I respect very much although it is not my way of understanding flamenco because I think you limit the possibilities of the piano since its mechanics are very different from the guitar, I have it as a reference, although I insist, it is a very particular vision of mine.
A UNIQUE AND EXCLUSIVE METHOD DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR PIANISTS AND COMPOSERS LIKE YOU, WHO WANT TO REACH ANOTHER LEVEL BOTH CREATIVELY AND TECHNICALLY, AND SOUND DIFFERENT FROM THE REST.
I am very clear that the fusion of these two worlds is perfect for achieving a higher level as a musician. That’s why I have spent years developing my own method to help musicians reach that superior level because teaching is one of my vocations and passions as well.
I love bringing out the best in every artist who comes to me. That’s why I say that I don’t just give piano lessons; I help you find your own path. However, I realized that during my years of studying the classics, some concepts were missing, leaving my peers lacking in certain musical aspects.
WHO IS THIS MASTER FOR?
This journey has not been short or easy, and I have to tell you that it has taken me 35 years of my life. That’s why I want to emphasize that the knowledge and experience I have gained will not be shared with just anyone because, as I mentioned earlier, time is the most valuable thing to me. I genuinely mean it.
If you consider yourself a truly committed person, if you want to accelerate your learning process while solidifying each acquired knowledge, and if you feel that I am the person who can help you achieve your goal or dream, whatever you may call it, then the doors of my heart will be wide open to you because I am willing to give my all.
But if you’re unable to dedicate a considerable amount of time to internalize all the acquired material, you won’t progress at the pace you expect. Commitment, discipline, and patience are crucial to achieving any goal in life.
I also have to allocate time to concerts and my family. That’s why sometimes I can’t study many other things that I’m passionate about, such as photography, cinema, neuroscience, marketing, or the world of finance. That’s why I offer the option for both in-person and online students to record the classes, so they can watch them whenever they want and review the material at any time.
I won’t deny that you can learn some aspects of flamenco on YouTube, but I can assure you that you’ll progress much slower, taking years of study and learning, and with the uncertainty of whether you’re learning it correctly. Trying to masquerade( disfrazarse) as a self-taught individual may bring you more frustration than satisfaction.

If you are truly someone who is committed to a passion, this opportunity is for you.
It is the combination of work and passion that creates magic.
If you are truly determined to pursue your passion, it would be unfair for me to waste my wealth of knowledge and experience on someone who does not deserve it. Your time and mine are truly valuable.
Do you aspire for excellence or simplicity?
FLAMENCO IS NOT DIFFICULT, IT'S JUST THAT YOU HAVEN'T BEEN TAUGHT PROPERLY
It’s not enough to simply know the rhythms; the real secret lies in how we feel them in flamenco, how we count the beats, and where the accents are placed that make the music sound flamenco or not.
Undoubtedly, singing (cante) is the most challenging aspect to learn, but it is the cornerstone (Piedra angular) of this art form. Transcribing songs by listening to recordings can take years if you are not familiar with our codes – where the melodies begin, why they end in one place and not another, and so on.
As for harmony, I must say that it is perhaps the simplest part of flamenco, but it can become more complicated depending on how you analyze it. My training, especially in the classical world, and my approach to jazz have allowed me to simplify its forms even further, making the learning path of this style of music smoother.
The flamenco I do is not fusion, it's evolution.
I must confess that my beginnings at the conservatory were not promising at all. I repeated 2nd grade of solfeggio twice, my sight-reading was very poor, and melodic dictations were a disaster for me to the point where I considered quitting the conservatory. Everything changed when I found Julia; my path took a 180-degree turn. I started taking private lessons with her, and I never had to study a lesson from the book “Rhythm and Reading” (I’m sure you’re familiar with it). My sight-reading skills became impressive.
I won’t say that I was a model student; that would be a lie. But I was clear about my path. I was going to be a concert performer and composer, especially in flamenco. In this journey, I have been a dancer of rap and funk, and I have also done theater (another one of my passions). I love photography and video. I confess that I’m not passionate about technology, but I am adaptable, and I have managed to adapt fairly well to it.
Flamenco and classical music are inseparable in my music.
Having the privilege of growing up in a Gypsy family allowed me to play almost every weekend with my mother, uncles and aunts, my siblings, my father on the guitar, my cousins, cultivating the language of flamenco and music in a natural way, like a child learning any other language. Alternating between the wild and free environment, as I like to call it, and the refined atmosphere of the conservatory helped me develop a very enriching and personal language in all aspects, allowing me to achieve artistic and personal goals that I had always dreamed of.
My journey in these 25 years as a professional, playing with the best artists of this art, has allowed me to develop a language that originates from the piano, therefore with its own language, without imitating the guitar. However, I always have it as a reference, thus achieving a very personal way of channeling my vision of this art through this powerful and majestic instrument.
I created my own language because I haven't discriminated against any music genre.
I consider myself privileged because classical training is one of my pillars. Since I was a child, I absorbed it while playing Bach and accompanying my grandfather Pepe Albaycín or my mother in playing Siguiriyas, as we say in flamenco. This allowed me to unite these two powerful languages in art, translating our unique way of understanding music into the most universal language, classical music.
Furthermore, my exploration of jazz, funk, rap, Indian music, Latin America, and electronic music has provided me with infinite musical richness, allowing me to differentiate myself from other pianists.
I don't imitate the guitar, I draw inspiration from it.
One thing that is tirelessly sought after in art is to be different, and playing flamenco on the piano provides this opportunity, as there are only about 5 or 10 people in the world who master this music. And if we narrow it down even further, there are no more than 5 (or perhaps even fewer) who have specialized in accompanying singing and dancing, in addition to being soloists.
Musicians like Manuel de Falla, Chick Corea, or Rosalía were very clear about this, and flamenco is present in their work.
Now it's up to you.
You can continue to suppress your passion with false beliefs or limitations.
Or you can be part of that select group of daring musicians who know how to identify opportunities and enjoy the privilege of taking their passion and talent to another level.
What they say of me
Pablo makes his own the maxim of not playing like a guitarist and the range that his piano acquires in “Fuera de la realidad” is greater than with other fellow musicians. Simply different.
Pablo San Nicasio
It is always a joy for this music, universal like few others, when an artist like Pablo Rubén Maldonado with solid musical training appears, leaving his skin in a repertoire of his own creation with a resoundingly flamenco aroma.
Enormous range of colors and a velvet touch. Pablo Rubén Maldonado is a virtuoso pianist with a healthy tendency to austerity although he cannot help expressing the chromatic variety of his heart. A great pianist with a personal sound.

MY FORMER STUDENTS
Here are some testimonials from previous students with whom I have had the opportunity to share my experience and knowledge of flamenco.
All the blame lies with my parents
Thanks to my father, who sat me down on the piano stool when I was 4 years old, even though my feet couldn’t reach the pedals, I developed an innate curiosity for improvisation and creativity. Along with those initial basic notions that I was fortunate enough to receive from him about this profoundly deep music called flamenco.
Immersing myself in the wonderful world of classical music, one of his great passions that he cleverly passed on to me, made me realize how important it would be for my career to unite these two musical currents.
If you consider yourself a high-level artist, performer, composer, teacher, and aspire to be a complete musician, you cannot afford to overlook flamenco. The vocabulary you will acquire will lead you to exponential growth and enable you to reach that level of excellence you crave.

I don’t recommend it because you won’t be able to fully benefit from all the material at the same pace as the other students. You should have a minimum experience of 4 years. However, since the classes are recorded, you can go at your own pace.
No, it’s not necessary. There won’t be any sheet music in the classes since one of the objectives of the course is to enhance improvisation and learn music by ear and visually, as this is one of the characteristics of flamenco. However, I will provide MIDI material.
Yes, in order to play all the exercises live and internalize them better.
