This series of classes will explore a collection of Tango tunes written from the the turn of the century to modern days that qualify as “standards”: a history of tango, milonga, and valses showcasing the evolution of styles. Guitar and vocal techniques will address style, rhythm, phrasing, and repertoire from Tango guitarists/composers/lyricists/vocalists. Class time includes listening to recorded examples by Tango greats to develop ideas for new arrangements. We will learn how to apply the exercises and techniques to songs.

 

Gardel, Libertad Lamarque, Ignacio Corsini, Rosita Quiroga, Roberto Goyeneche, Azucena Maizani, Edmundo Rivero and more.
