In partnership with Desert Sounds, the Pendergast District is introducing a Mariachi Program for the 2022-23 school year. Mariachi has strong cultural roots in storytelling and Mexican history and is a great way for children of all backgrounds to immerse themselves in an interactive learning experience.
The program dives into the unique history and culture of Mariachi Music. Students become more connected to a deep cultural tradition and community with performance opportunities. For many students, this will be their first experience playing an instrument or mariachi music. Students learn basic musical concepts and how to work together as a mariachi ensemble.
