My Students

The support that the arts community offers is exceptionally important to middle school students. They work to develop their sense of self; finding out how they fit into the world around them. The opportunity to express themselves is key to their overall development.

Our students recognize that our differences are our strengths.

We serve a very culturally and economically diverse population. We also house the Dual Language program for all the middle schools in the district. We celebrate our diversity and are accepting of all students.

My Project

Lifelong Mariachi performer and educator John Nieto joins music educator Bob Phillips to provide authentic orchestral settings of familiar, traditional tunes for string orchestra alone, mariachi band alone, or string orchestra and mariachi band together. Trumpet and accompaniment books are available to provide optional parts for trumpet, guitar, guitarrón, vihuela, piano, and harp. Historical background and arrangement ideas are provided in the Teacher's Manual.

Our band and orchestra students need music to begin our Mariachi journey.

The Mariachi Philharmonic method book series is a perfect starting point for our new middle school ensemble. We are looking for music to teach traditional Mexican styles to violin, viola, cello, bass, guitar, guitarron and trumpet. We are hoping to purchase 10 total books through your generous donation.
