Guitar/VIhuela

Behind any great mariachi, is a great Armonia Section. With its rhythmic strumming, the Guitar/Vihuela is truly the backbone of a Mariachi and carries an extremely crucial role. Sure the violins may have the beautiful melodies, and the trumpets its vibrant riffs, however, everything falls apart if the Armonia Section is not in unison. We require at least one year of experience and the ability to play most chords. Reading music is not entirely essential, but helpful and a skill you will learn if admitted to the group. A strong, unwavering sense of rythym is required. Sheet music is down below.

Guitarron

Big and Powerful, the Guitarron is the heartbeat of a Mariachi. With it's deep and precise plucks, the Guitarron is essential for the intros, transitions, and cues of the music. We require at least one year of experience and the ability to read sheet music. Audition Sheet Music can be found below.

Vocals
