In-Home Guitar Lessons

I found Jason about 8 months ago, not having touched a guitar for at least 30 years. In my younger days I was an OK player playing in several bands. Playing by ear and with chords with no knowledge of music theory but I had fun. After so long it was like a rookie experience. Jason is a great teacher: an Outstanding player and really tunes into to what you want to learn. One of his approaches is asking “what do you like?”. He’ll play some iconic riffs from the artist or era I’ve mentioned and we are off and running. I’ve had a blast learning from amazing songs I never thought I could play! Going is slow and steady-very patient teacher- a quality very important in any instructor. He has every high tech tools to make remote teaching seem like he’s actually with you: the camera angles to observe and be observed, the real time music tabs, the amazing interactive handouts and extensive YouTube library of his music, lessons, techniques, performances, etc. Amazing! And unlike many music teachers who seem to love charging you for missed or rescheduled lessons, he’s pretty flexible with me on times and schedule changes-I’m a guy who still works as a practicing physician and he accommodates work related delays or changes with coolness and style-sort of like his approach to everthing he does. Jason is the real deal. Talented and highly qualified as well as being a great guy.

Tucker Dale

Tucker came to our house to do some music lessons for my young kids and he was fantastic! From our initial consult over the phone I could tell that he is passionate about music but even more passionate about teaching young kids about music. He engaged with the kids and made learning about music fun. He was perceptive to the kids’ cues and knew when to go from teaching to fun rock band time. He’s all about teaching the children to love music and embrace all aspects from playing instruments to singing to listening and dancing. Can’t wait for our next lessons! Thanks tucker!

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.
