Reed College Tango Music Institute 2013

Last week I spent almost every waking moment of my life learning the craft of playing tango music. The experience was amazing, intense, frustrating, moving, and every other emotion in between. The abundance of piano players resulted in us having to wait for our turn to play with orchestras and ensembles and provided for ample time to sketch.
