Early life

At the age of 10 years, Jureidini started taking guitar lessons with Spanish teacher Emilio Conal. He later pursued his studies in music theory, harmony, and counterpoint with Dr. Nabil Jaafar.

In 1992, he graduated specializing in classical and flamenco guitar music. In Spain, he took a number of master classes with important flamenco guitarists.
