About the Workshop

The Tanguero Workshop, presented by Cuarteto Tanguero, brings together students and renowned Argentine Tango professionals from around the globe for an immersive educational experience at the beautiful Saint Mary’s College Campus.

Each day will provide a variety of activities, including classes, private lessons, small ensemble coachings, orquesta típica rehearsals, master classes. Additional community activities provides a diverse immersion in tango music, dance, culture, and history — past and present.

See our Classes page for an example of a typical day at the workshop.


Open to Adult and Youth (ages 12 and up – accompanied by parents if under 18) on Bandoneón, Strings (Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass), and Piano. We welcome all levels and ages of players.

The Tanguero Workshop has a place for every tango musician. Seasoned tangueros come to share ideas with others from around the globe, to get access to unique tango resources, and to play and study with world-renowned tango maestros. Those newer to tango are quickly swept into a multifaceted tango experience, learning solid idiomatic tango technique for their instrument, and participating in different elements of tango culture in a supportive, community environment.

All attendees, amateur to professional, are matched with people of similar levels. Although we do not require a formal audition to be accepted to this workshop, newcomers are asked for a 10-15 minutes quick Skype chat so that we can assign you the right materials.

What is a Tanguero?

“Tanguero” refers to both tango professionals and people who are passionate about any part of tango culture, including history, music, dance, lyrics, theater. If any of these aspects describe how you feel about tango, or if you are interested in learning, this workshop is for you!
