"May 13, 2016 Susan Lawson 501 E Hearne Way Gilbert, AZ 85234 I recommend Myra Lin as a fine teacher, an outstanding violinist, and a superb musician. I first met Myra at Sunday Classics Club East four years ago when she asked me to accompany her in a series of violin and piano concerts. I have a Masters degree in Piano Performance from Manhattan School of Music and have collaborated with many musicians, and Myra is an especially gifted violinist with a dazzling technique, and warmth and imagination based upon serious musical study. When I retired, I wanted to fulfill a lifelong dream of studying the violin, so I became one of her violin students and got to know her as a teacher, which further corroborated my respect for her. Her greatest strength is her ability to connect with her students. She is methodical, and communicates effectively to all ages, and makes it fun to learn. She uses classic instructional texts supplemented with her own, finely developed creative teaching materials. I am especially impressed with her insistence that violin lessons include music theory, so there is a solid foundation to how she teaches. She is a teacher with high standards in that she expects her students to work hard and achieve their potential, and she challenges her students without being harsh. I know that her former students still keep in touch with her regarding their success and progress in college. I have also participated in her summer violin boot camp, which kept students educated, entertained, and stimulated with musical games that she devised. I have seen her as the conductor of the Scottsdale Youth Symphony when she asked me to sit in with that group. I saw a side of her that confirmed her effectiveness as a leader and an inspiration to children. She further demonstrated that leadership ability with other musicians as the concertmaster of the Scottsdale Philharmonic. Based on Myra’s extraordinary knowledge, skills, and ability to teach effectively, there is no doubt in my mind that she is an outstanding violinist and educator whom I would recommend without reservation. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at the above address. Sincerely, Susan Lawson Collaborative Pianist"

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a mariachi band?

Mariachi bands are rooted in Mexican culture. Traditional mariachi bands consisted of two or more members playing stringed instruments, wearing regional costumes adapted from the charro (Mexican horseman or cowboy). Modern mariachi bands, which are likely what you’re looking for when searching for a mariachi band for hire, feature at least four members who play stringed instruments (violin, vihuela, bass guitar called guitarron) and one or more trumpets. The costumes have remained the same, but now trumpets are synonymous with mariachi music. Mariachi bands for hire often play a wide range of music, including styles originating from Mexico and adopted from elsewhere. These include jarabes, waltzes, serenades, corridos (Mexican ballads), ranchera, cumbia, and more. Mariachi bands for hire bring a festive and soulful element to a party, birthday, wedding, corporate affair, fundraiser or community event. UNESCO has inscribed mariachi music on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

How much does a mariachi band cost?

A mariachi band will bring your party or event alive with their fabulous costumes, beautiful playing and strong vocals. The cost of a mariachi band for hire will depend on how many players are in the group. Each musician in a performance group needs to be paid, so pricing is usually based on the number of mariachis (musicians), the location of the event (and travel time required), and the length of the performance. Day of the week also affects cost, as does day — Christmas, New Year’s Eve and other major holidays will cost more than regular days. The national average cost for live bands of all types ranges between $740 and $1,200. Depending on where you live and regional rates for performers, you might expect to pay between $65 and $120 per hour, per player. Mariachi groups may have 12-15 players available for performance at one time, depending on your budget. Here are some examples of how the number of players affects average cost:

  • Four mariachis: $300 per hour for weeknights, $400 per hour for weekends.
  • Five mariachis: $350 per hour for weeknights, $400-$450 per hour for weekends. Weekends may have a minimum number of hours.
  • Six mariachis: $400 per hour for weeknights, $450-$500 per hour for weekends.

How many mariachis can a band have?

A mariachi band for hire can have as many players as you like. Modern mariachi bands typically have a minimum of four players with the trumpet playing a vital musical role along with stringed instruments such as the violin, guitarrón (a Mexican bass guitar with a deep body), vihuela (a Spanish stringed guitar) and guitar. Strong vocals are also an important component of mariachi bands for hire, since one or more of the players will be singing during the performance. For a truly spectacular show, you can hire a mariachi band with 15 or more players. The medley of stringed instruments, multiple trumpets, soaring vocals, and even an accordion or harp is powerful and beautiful. Mariachis typically wear the traditional costume of charros — Mexican horsemen. The look is a very regal, monotone suit, often in black or white, with silver adornments and embroidery. Mariachi bands often wear sombreros as well. Traditional mariachi bands were only made up of two or more players, according to a UNESCO report celebrating the cultural heritage of the musical style. The style of music originated in the state of Jalisco. Now the style of music is symbolic of Mexico but is celebrated all over the world, and adds a fabulous vibrancy to any group’s events, parties and weddings.
