As a former Sexteto Milonguero musician and actual tango dancer and teacher I've created a Tango Music Seminar to teach the fundaments of tango music theory from the perspective of a musician(and dancer) applied to the milongueros. I share a lot of information that musicians are familiar with , but tested to not to be too technical for non-musicians and milongueros, and because of that, more undestandable and aplicable to their dance.
Mariano has been teaching it in person around Europe, like London,UK Reading,UK Rotterdam,NL Amersfoort, NL The Hague,NL , Malaga, SP.
He has also an Online format of the seminar.
