Learn how to play tango Music

I don't know about you all, but the idea of meeting as a group, in one room (not via a computer screen!) and making music together fills me with anticipatory joy!
The Tango Jam is a relaxed, in-person meeting of musicians of all levels under the guidance of Ruth Rozelaar. We will explore the essence of Tango Music, working at a pace that everyone can follow. Sheet music is available, but we will also work on playing by ear.

We will meet in January 2023, time and location yet to be confirmed



Online Classes



Calling all piano players!

A La Parrilla exercises for Piano, every Tuesday on Zoom
A weekly group class with Mark Wyman, Tuesday afternoons at 17.00 Paris time (4pm British time), starting May 12th

Dear fellow Piano players,
We are now offering a weekly piano session with a Teacher, who will show us tips and tricks of making Tango come alive, away from the sheet music.

What is 'A La Parrilla'?
'A la Parrilla' is a way of playing Tango without fixed arrangements, either by heart, or playing from simple lead sheets which provide only the melody and chord symbols (similar to how Jazz is notated).

Who are the lessons for?
Piano players (a basic command of the instruments is a minimum requirement).
We will probably create two levels, depending on interest - one for people who have played Tango before and one for whom this is the first exposure to Tango. Please come to this first taster-session to assess your needs/level.
If you are interested but cannot make this day of the week/time of day, please get in touch to let us know!

How will the lessons work?
We meet using Zoom, an online platform. You will see and hear the teacher but no-one will hear you play (unless you chose to), which gives you the freedom to experiment without feeling exposed.
The sessions are practical - there will be plenty of opportunity to try out the exercises during the session, and you will receive a handout of the material to support your own practice during the week.
You will be able to ask questions in between the exercises.

Who is the Teacher?
Mark Wyman has played piano since age five. In 1988 he moved to San Francisco CA to continue his musical studies, graduating from San Francisco State University (Summa cum laude), and then Mills College (Dean's List) with a Master's in Piano Performance and Literature.
Mark has a very broad musical experience, from classical to punk, from pop to avant-garde, playing anything with keys or knobs, piano, organ, accordion, and many different synths. He has performed solo, and with many different groups across the entire musical spectrum.
Mark has toured around the US, and all over Europe, and studied and played tango in Buenos Aires. In San Francisco, Mark played with several tango groups: Strictly Tango, Tango #9, MonTango, and his own Quartet.
Mark currently lives in Amsterdam, performing, accompanying and teaching. He plays and conducts in musicals, with several tango groups, as well as working with many other choirs, singers and performers. Mark, under his company Delf Music, publishes The Tango Fake Books (http://harmonk.com).

How much does it cost?
Your first session this Tuesday is FREE - please join us to see if it is something you're interested in, no obligation to continue!
Following on from that, it costs €6 (or £5.50) per session.
Pay your fee by Thursday: Friday you will receive sheet music in advance of Tuesday's lesson.
You can also drop in without advance payment and receive the sheet music as a handout after the lesson.

How do I join?
Please contact Mark to get bank details and the zoom log-in data.
