Ontiveros, Nicque


Mariachi class focuses on the history and art of Mexican folk music and helps develop performance techniques used by a traditional Mariachi group. Our goal is to develop a strong Mariachi program. We will discuss the correct manner of playing and performing in a Mariachi ensemble both stylistically and physically. We will also learn and memorize music in order to perform in front of an audience.

The traditional Mariachi group consists of violins, trumpets, guitars, vihuela and guitarron. All students are expected to contribute vocally to the performances.

Mariachi members are expected to belong to a parent organization (i.e. band, orchestra, or choir), maintain a grade of 70 or better in all their classes, and commit to attending all performances and rehearsals.
