Denton ISD mariachi instruction began at Denton HS in the Fall of 2016. Mariachi has now expanded to Calhoun MS, McMath MS, Strickland MS, and plans are being made for Ryan HS. Mariachi is for any music students who enjoy performing diverse genres of music and learning more about the Hispanic culture which is rich in tradition and musical style. Violin members must be a part of the orchestra program. Trumpet members must be a part of the band program. No experience is necessary for students who choose to learn acoustic guitar, vihuela, or guitarron. All mariachi members will also learn to sing in mariachi style. Vocal soloists who are also members of their choir program are encourged to join as well.
