Tom had taught both my brothers how to play guitar and me being the youngest I wanted to do everything my brothers did. Tom started teaching me guitar when I was around 12 years old. He was the best teacher ever and still is. He was very thorough and was very involved in my progress which is important. He also interacted with me by playing while I played, which helped me respond better to the music. He made learning guitar fun and easy. I learned so much over the years and as I got older, now 28 years old I have written several songs, jammed with many, and have played in a band. He has also opened me up to bass, drums, and piano because he taught me how to listen to music and read music. Hopefully when my children are old enough they will learn from Tom, as well. I highly recommend Tom Margaritas for anyone who wants to learn guitar. It's kind of amazing that after 16 years I am still in contact with Tom my one and only guitar teacher. I'm feeling awesome cause I learner guitar from a truly inspiring person who is so creative and talented.

Review for William Powers I am a non-professional singer interested in improving my overall level of performance in both solo and choral situations. I have worked with Mr. Powers on several occasions in preparation for a vocal recital and an opera performance, and I truly cannot recommend him highly enough! Not only is he great fun to work with, he is able to quickly and accurately assess my strengths and weaknesses as a performer, and offer practical advice that I can put into use immediately. He is particularly effective in helping me bring a song to life by examining the emotional content of the music and lyrics, and then presenting it in such a way as to deeply touch the hearts and minds of my listeners. Whatever your current level of skill as a singer, actor, or public speaker, and whether you are an amateur or professional performer, Mr. Powers can give you the inspiration and the practical tools to move on to a much higher level!

Margarita is an awesome artist. I enjoy our lesson a lot! I'm an oversea student studying in the State. And I was worried I would be really nervous due to my imperfect English. Yet Margarita made the lesson playful and enjoyable. I am having so much fun right now!

Shaun was a fantastic beginner guitar instructor. I had never even picked up a guitar until our first lesson and I was reading music and playing songs by my second lesson. He was extremely patient, articulate and talented. He also came to my apartment which was very convenient. I would highly recommend him for anyone interested in learning how to play the guitar.

Alyssa was my pianist for my artist diploma recital back in March 2016. She was super flexible with my busy schedule, was always prepared for our rehearsals, and most importantly she plays incredibly well with so much love for the music. It's hard to find much better. :)

We highly recommend Vinnie Hines at Artist Collective (Chicago)! We have attended several performances by Vinnie Hines and liked him so much that he did a private show at one of our parties. He was fantastic with the attendees and the show was great! It's only perfect that he also does bookings for Artist Collective. We recently went to him with a special request for an artist with a specific skillset and Vinnie was right on it making things happen. Over the years we have used several outlets for talent and Vinnie Hines at Artist Collection (Chicago) is by far top notch and great to work with.

My wife and I had the privilege of having Michelle as the cantor for our wedding on May 23, 2015. She did an amazing job singing and our guests were blown away with her voice. After the wedding I had people come up to me and say how beautiful the music was, especially the voice of the person singing! Michelle is a true professional. On the days leading up to our big day she took the time to meet with us and offer guidance in picking the songs for the wedding. She is very patient. My wife and I did not feel rushed during our meeting. Michelle gives you her full attention and does a great job working with you. On top of all this, she also has an amazing personality and is very easy to work with. You can't help having a smile on your face when working with her. Thank you so much the amazing job Michelle!

After seeing a performance by Alex I asked him to work with me in the future on a dance piece. His technique, clarity, and expressiveness were outstanding then and later when he performed in a new solo I created on a guest artist from a dance company in Israel. He was a pleasure to work with in the process and the final product. I would recommend him to anyone, anywhere, at any time and look forward to working with him again.

I've been singing for years as a solo artist and am part of a band but needed someone who would be able to help me improve my vocal placement. Figuring this out on your own can be near to impossible as you're so used to hearing your own voice. Julia is a fabulous vocal coach! She got me out of my head. We worked on an assortment of exercises to find my placement then used current song material to execute it properly. She makes singing fun and I can't wait to go to my next lesson!

Absolutely the best guitar teacher I've ever taken lessons from. I wanted to learn: Beatles, Stones, Neil, Dylan, Joni, R&B, and a whole slew of songs I'd heard & loved from my teens. Fran not only knew them, he was able to teach them to a beginner. All ya gotta do is practice. He was one of the best kept secrets in L.A. I remember that not only Bob Dylan, but also Jackson Browne asked him for consultation on specific artists. Chicago is lucky to have him.

Kevin has worked with my daughter for three years as first her ukelele teacher and then her guitar teacher. She had background in piano but as a middle school student was losing interest. She suggested uke lessons and Kevin has made her love music again. He alloes her to follow her own musical interests when choosing songs while pushing her tecnical areas. Besides her amazing growth and progress, she genuinely enjoys the person Kevin is and looks to him now for guidance in other musical pursuits. I would recommend him highly!

    Allison Cannon is not only a decided musician, but she is also passionate about teaching others. I've known Allison for eight years now and have heard her skill level advance with each passing year. She is hands down one of the most talented musicians I know for her age, and quite frankly most anywhere. She has done a multitude of performances and comes highly recommended by a well renown director, Patrick Henning. If you have the opportunity to work with this shinning-young, talented musician take everything you can in! She will teach you the skill you wish to have from the skill that still surpasses most well known artists.

    I hired Mark Olen and the Brassworks Music Productions for our Chicago revival of the play Side Man. He played a short set before our curtain and audience members were thrilled to experience the incredible live music. He is the consummate professional and true jazz artist. I highly recommend Mark and will most certainly use him in the future.

    Ms. Røsnes introduced me to several particular stringplaying technical applications. A mountain of patience and a source of inspiration. I had almost given up hope of ever learning but I am still playing and through her instructions am able to make the music live. Much appreciated! Thank you.

        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 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.

        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.
