Argentine tango & South-American guitar

Individuele lessen

These classes cover the most important aspects of Tango music, such as technique, harmony, accompaniment, improvisation, licks and more. We will cover some of the most important pieces of the Argentine repertoire: Carlos Gardel, Aníbal Troilo, Astor Piazzolla, among others. The main goal of these lessons is to provide you with the fundamentals to play Tango music in an authentic way, through an efficient and dynamic method that allows you to improve your skills at your own pace. It can also be extended to other South American styles, such as Milonga, Argentinian Waltz, Zamba, Chacarera, Bossa Nova and Bolero. Recommended for guitarists with, at least, a general knowledge of their instrument (such as chords, notes, basic rhythms, etc.) regardless of their technical skills or the musical styles that they usually play. Reading music is not mandatory but it's always a plus.
