Default Juan Serrano

Don't mean to be morbid, but is Juan Serrano still alive? I took an "Intro to Classical Guitar" class from him at Fresno State a long time ago, and just rediscovered his music on youtube.

Funny story, the first day of class he announced how you could learn to play something very simple and very beautiful from his class. He then broke into something (Flamenco if I recall) with both hands moving about 1000 mph. Anyone who already played a little and thought "I ain't learning anything from this dude" had their attitude suitably adjusted.

There’s no mention of him passing in these references:

What can you tell us about that class?

What year were you at Fresno State University? I was there from 2003 to 2007. This was during the time we had an interim guitar instructor named Corey Whitehead. Juan came back for a year only to retire in that same year. The King of Flamenco, Juan Serrano, will always be my favorite guitarist.
