From the easy to the most complex, from the obvious to the exceptions.

The aim of the course is to give the "tools" to the participant to adapt to each of the paths suggested by the music.

Suitable for all levels.

Includes theory and movement.

No music knowledge required.

This Musicality course is a genuine combination of approaching the music, the dance and other aspects that we need for connecting to tango. It is an essential part of an holistic approach of tango.
I am looking forward to sharing all I know with you.

Each lesson lasts around 1,5 hour.

Structure of the lesson
Each lesson is divided in 3 main parts:
- Music Theory specialized on Tango
- Great number of examples of tango pieces to support all information given
- Homework assigned - exercises that will take about 1 hour (or less) to complete.

After each lesson,  you will receive: 
- notes/material on tango music analysis and exercises on tango songs.
- videos with live BandoneΓ³n examples, which is really helpful for recognizing in a clear way the patterns, music articulations, rhythmical forms, etc.
- video tutorials with exercises of movements  to  practice on, either alone or with a partner.

You will find some short examples/samples below
