To register, participants will be asked to:
- Fill out the registration form which will be available online here and submit payment (full tuition is due at the time of registration). This will reserve your spot for the program.
- Provide a link to an audio or video recording that best represents your playing for the leveling team to make ensemble assignments and place you in the appropriate instrumental techniques classes. (See ABOUT THE AUDIO/VIDEO TRACK below for more information).
After completing the registration form available online here, registrants will have to:
- Pay the full amount of the tuition by bank transfer to Tango Sin Fin’s German bank account.
- Send the receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating your full name.
Within two working days after completing these steps you’ll receive an email with your Registration number. The process will then be completed and your spot will be fully reserved.
An 80% refund of the tuition fee will be provided for those who request it by contacting us at email@example.com before 31th May, 2018 (excluding service fees). Tuition is not refundable after 31st May, 2018.
ABOUT THE AUDIO/VIDEO TRACK
To complete the registration form, all participants will be asked to submit an audio or video track of themselves playing their instrument. That audio/video will only be seen by our leveling team and will not be published or shared. It is important to note that it will not be considered an audition; it will only be used as a reference to make ensemble and instrumental technique assignments.
The audio/video can feature any genre of music (tango, classical, jazz, folk, etc.), although a tango recording is preferred. A recording of a solo performance or one in which the participant stands out as a soloist is suggested. The audio/video does not need to be technically sophisticated but should fairly represent the participant’s level of playing.
Participants who are performers of more than one instrument will have to choose a primary instrument which will be played in the ensembles and will be focused on in instrumental techniques classes, which are instrument-specific and will be tiered according to level and experience.
Beginning bandoneón players are not required to submit a video. This circumstance should be noted on the registration form in the comments field.
A tutorial on uploading video files to YouTube can be found here. Files can also be uploaded to any cloud hosting service such as Google Drive or Dropbox, but public access must be granted to each link. We will not consider video files sent by WeTransfer to none of our addresses, and we will ask participants to reupload their submission through a different service.
