Tango Ensemble _ Course _ MuziekPublique academy

The tango course aims to understand and to browse through this musical genre in all its forms: traditional, contemporary, modern, and fusion. As well as working on its different rhythms: tango, waltz, milonga. We will work on an adapted repertoire specifically arranged for the instruments of the ensemble. In the repertoire, we will find music from renowned composers such as Astor Piazzolla, Osvaldo Pugliese, Horacio Salgan, Anibal Troilo, as well as composers and bands of today.

The main idea of the course is to create a dynamic and fun musical ensemble, with a variety of instrument and a musical complexity adapted to the musicians.

The course is aimed at all musicians (intermediate or advanced) or amateurs of this music.


String instruments (violin, viola, cello, contrabass)

Guitar (classic or electric)

Electric bass

Percussions (drums, cajon, other)

Accordion and bandoneon

This course will tackle the fundamental notions of tango music: melody, rhythm, counterpoint, typical orchestral styles, contemporary and modern tango ensembles. The analysis will focus directly on developing musicality and music interpretation.

The secret to discover

In principle, musicality is considered an innate virtue of the artist. But in reality, musicality can be acquired through understanding and work.

There are different ways of being musical. Rhythm seems to be the most obvious connection to music. We can also follow the melody, counterpoint, or an instrument, and now change our reference while listening.

The more we understand certain aspects of the music, the more tools we have to generate a more elaborate interpretation. 

As an introduction, I invite you to read the article: What is musicality. ( FR / ESP only, read more)

What is the subject of the course?

In this seminar, the fundamental concepts of tango music will be analysed: melody, rhythm, counterpoint, typical orchestra styles, etc.

The course is aimed at any tango dancer or tango lover.

In addition to Camilo Cordoba‘s musical analysis, the practical classes will benefit from the contribution of guest dance maestros with whom we will work specifically on the subjects seen during the classes.
