Flutist and composer Paulina Fain is one of the most prominent tango pedagogues in the world. She is the director of the Método de Tango series published by Ricordi House, a unique series of bilingual instrumental method books. She is the author of The Flute in Tango volume in that series, which presents her original method for applying tango phrasing and articulation to the flute and other wind instruments, opening new avenues for those instruments in tango. She is also the director of Tango Para Músicos, the Buenos Aires-based affiliate of Tango for Musicians at Reed College. Ms. Fain has presented concerts and master classes throughout the world and directs the Buenos Aires-based nonprofit arts organization Tango Sin Fin, which promotes Argentine music and music education locally and internationally. As a performer, she has toured widely with pianist Exequiel Mantega as the Duo Fain-Mantega, a group that explores the limits of the genre and has established a new role and sound for the flute in tango.
Paulina Fain‘s method book The La Flauta en el Tango is one of the most important, and one of the most beautifully produced to appear in recent years.
