International Bandoneόn Masterclass is the only intensive course focused on  bandoneόn held in Italy on a regular basis. Home to this event is Sardinia, the destination of bandoneonists coming from all over Europe. Every year, during the last week of August on the occasion of the ARTango & Jazz Festival event, eminent Maestros are the special guests holding classes and seminars. At the end of the course, all the musicians are gathered in a final performance, the result of work done during the masterclass days. 

From 2015 to today there are dozens and dozens of participants from all over Europe who have reached Sardinia to take part in the masterclass that, from year to year offers the possibility of attending individual and group lessons with the best bandoneόn masters in the world.

Maestro of the 2018 edition was the Argentinian national bandoneonist and teacher, Victor Villena, former professor of bandoneόn at the Codarts Conservatory of Rotterdam.

This year the 5th edition of the International Masterclass of bandoneon 2019 will have the honor of hosting the Argentinian bandoneonist and orchestra leader, Juan Josè Mosalini, called "one of the most important apostles of tango".

Another great guest will be the great German restorer Carsten Heveling who will hold a seminar on:

- The maintenance of the instrument and minor repairs;
- The tuning of single notes;
- The technical and acoustic characteristics of historical bandoneons.

Moreover, for those who need it, Carsten Heveling will offer the possibility of having a quote for a possible finalization and evaluation of the instrument as well as, if time permits, the possibility of carrying out any repairs in a laboratory that will be specially set up in the theatre.
