PUSD Mariachi Program

Our innovative PUSD Mariachi Program is an after school enrichment program for students in 3rd through 12th grades that uses a holistic and culturally relevant approach to support our targeted students and their families. Our whole child approach is meant to fully support students by creating pathways of opportunity to the many programs already offered in our school district and further bridge achievement and enrichment gaps.

The PUSD Mariachi Program offers the following:

  • Mariachi Instrumental Classes (Guitar, Vihuela, Guitarron, Trumpet, Violin)
  • Mariachi Vocal Classes
  • Baile Folklorico
  • Academic Support
  • Enrichment
  • Family Dinner
