    During the workshop, participants will engage in instruction on all Mariachi instruments (except harp), Mariachi history and culture, song styles and techniques, best performance practices, and will receive program-building resources to support the implementation of a Mariachi education program at their school/district.  All instructional materials will be provided, and participants are asked to bring a guitar, violin, and/or trumpet with them to the workshop.  Instruction will be available at a beginning level or an intermediate/advanced level in 2023.
