During the Masters course, the students all live together. The accommodation in the historic San Roque building, which has been completely renovated; it has a view over Alicante to the Mediterranean Sea, and is just a short walk from the San Nicolás Cathedral and the centre of Alicante. The students have their own bedrooms but share the kitchen and living areas. I visited San Roque and was offered an excellent cup of Italian coffee by the students. They told me that they were very comfortable living there and that they were all very happy together. This offers them the unique opportunity to talk and play for each other, to discuss their approaches to playing. They each come from such different backgrounds, and they are all dedicated to learning more and playing the guitar better. What is more, the accommodation is very inexpensive. Every aspect of living has been organised for the Masters course, so that the students only need to focus on their studies.
