Discover the unique style of Argentine tango music at this one-of-a-kind workshop. Musician Scott O'Day will present a seminar and workshop on the musical secrets of tango, from performance practice to extended instrumental techniques. The seminar will culminate with a hands-on workshop demonstrating individual instrumental techniques used in tango and how to use simple musical elements to build a complex arrangement of a classic tango tune. An impromptu ensemble made up of class participants will be formed to solidify the concepts learned in the workshop. Free.
