The Argentinian Tango is known for its stirring rhythms, passionate melodies and its fickle tempos. That’s what makes this sultry dance and its music just so exciting! In a tango-orchestra the musicians have to learn to feel and follow each other’s musical moves: they don’t often play with a conductor and so they have a lot of freedom. In the tango ‘a la parrilla’ (literally: ‘on the grill’) a theme gets interpreted by the group members themselves, on the spot: everyone knows their role and the codes that allow the music to groove and how to give the music their own personal feel.
With this as a starting point, in this course you learn the essentials of the Argentinian Tango, so that you can learn to play the grooves and rhythms on your instrument and discover how to free up your interpretation of the melody. Over the course of the lessons you can build up a repertoire to perform with each other and above all, you’ll learn to let it swing!
