As students in our top-tier ensemble, Mariachi Mestizo, leave to college, their places are taken by younger generations of players who are already being trained at The Mariachi Studio. These ensembles also perform regularly for recitals and community events.

The Mariachi Studio's ultimate goal is for our students to use their skill to make their way into collegiate mariachi ensembles, as they pursue their educational careers in universities across the country. UCLA, Stanford and Harvard are just a handful of the growing number of colleges that feature mariachi ensembles.
