Tango bandReed College Tango Music Institute

The Reed Tango Music Institute is a unique educational opportunity for proficient musicians on any instrument to study the musical richness of tango alongside some of the most accomplished tango musicians active today. The closing concert and milonga are both free and open to the public.

The 2014 Reed Tango Music Institute will include ensemble rehearsals and performance opportunities, group lessons and sectionals, specialty workshops on tango performance practice, lectures and discussion on tango music and history, jam sessions, film screenings, and much more.

New features of the 2014 institute include:

  • a dedicated track for guitarists, including instrumental techniques and guitar ensembles;
  • a bandoneón “boot camp” for beginners, focused on the fundamentals of instrumental technique, musical style, and foundational repertoire for beginning and early intermediate players;
  • streamlined distribution of materials and ensemble assignments so participants can arrive prepared to hit the ground running.

Returning artistic faculty include Pablo Aslan on bass, Octavio Brunetti on piano, and Julian Hasse on bandoneón. We are also thrilled to welcome three new members to the artistic faculty, including Adam Tully on guitar, and—joining us from Buenos Aires, Argentina—Paulina Fain on flute and other woodwinds and Ramiro Gallo on violin. One of the most prominent tango composers of the current generation, Ramiro Gallo will also offer advanced seminars on tango composition and arranging.

Space is limited to 65 participants, and the Institute is now FULL. You may still register to be on the wait list.

Tuition, including all instruction, materials, living in residential college, and meals, is $1,200. The application period for financial aid has now closed.

The institute is supported by the Reed College Department of Music.
