Mike is an excellent teacher with incredible skills and knowledge of many genres of music. Before taking lessons with Mike, I was only learning guitar by learning simple metal songs with my old guitar teacher. When I started taking lessons with Mike, my guitar playing improved exponentially. Mike helps you reach your goals through a variety of methods like exercises and the underlying music theory to introduce the material, followed up by applications of the material seen in real music you listen to. Mike has also helped me be more open-minded about other good genres of music like the blues, jazz, and classical, which has also helped me to become a more well-rounded player. Overall, Mike is a great guitarist, musician, and teacher who can help you get as far as you want to go as a guitar player.

I had a small group of kids ages 3-7 and they all had a great time. He broke up the magic show with some dance time to keep their attentions through the whole thing. All of my kids were laughing laughing laughing. Most of the kids got a chance to be a helper and they really enjoyed participating in the magic tricks.

I tried playing several times on my own but since taking lessons with Josh I actually want to play and practice, he has an innate ability to push you yet make it relaxing. He tailors the lesson to you, takes the time to find your interests/goals. And a great little bonus in teaching you a lot of nuances of playing guitar and music in general. Highly recommended.

Travis is an extremely knowledgeable guitarist and teacher. Travis is equally comfortable in playing/teaching jazz, rock, blues, or classical styles. I really like the way he explains things and he has the ability to make difficult material seem simpler. Travis is very likeable, enthusiastic, and always very professional. I think Travis would be great teaching either children or adults because he's very patient. My learning experience with Travis has been outstanding. He taught me some great techniques for chord substitution and for soloing. I'll continue to work with Travis because he inspires me to be a better guitarist. I think he could really help me with composing because he writes some great songs too! Thanks Travis!

I am a member of the Annie Mack Band. Kathleen and BKS provided backup vocals on Annie's Baptized in the Blues album (released 2013). Also, for two years running, Kathleen and BKS have joined us on stage at the Bay Front Blues Festival in Duluth. In the studio and live they elevated us to another level. They are fantastic! Professional, quick studies, a joy to work with, I highly recommend Kathleen and BKS!

Bloomington Farmers Market favorite, folk is just a general description for his music. Hints of blues and country come through his warm vocal tone not labeling him in one single genre. Always a pleasure having Dan preform at the market.

I have listened to, been in production with, and performed with Greg several times for over 10 years. He has played, written, scored, transposed, adapted, and collaborated to create exactly what was needed for each event, show, and gathering. As a pianist and guitarist he seems a bottomless well of ability and genre capability; he can rock Bon Jovi and then perform an Arvo Pärt piece that will bring you to tears. Pop, classical, jazz, funk, modern, quiet, loud, solo, ensemble, and more. Greg is talented, experienced, collaborative, and a pleasure to work with and to listen to.

Reuben Correa has played for us several times at events at the Woman's Club of Minneapolis. He is an accomplished harpist with a large repertoire of music. Reuben has been a consummate professional in his dealings with us. He is a popular musician that members want to have back. I would highly recommend him.

I’m 27 and have never done anything musical before. I’m taking songwriting and piano lessons with Curtis. He is really good at tailoring my lessons to what I want to be doing and motivating me to keep writing and practicing. This is something I’ve thought about doing for years and it feels incredible to actually be doing it finally! He’s an awesome teacher and a great guy! Would highly recommend! 👍👍

I am 50+ guy who is an advanced beginner or early intermediate and have had many "beginner" guitar instructors. I was very pleasantly impressed with Loba and very highly recommend him. He teaches many styles of music but perhaps most importantly he shares with you how to play, to feel the music and express the feeling the music has for you - so you are not only learning a new piece but you are owning it personally through Loba's encouragement and guidance. You take guitar lessons with Loba not from him - it is a shared experience. As person, he is friendly, polite, patient and sensitive; and will share his many experiences with music and people - an education alone. This is a very positive referral, and should be, Loba has earned it and will continue to, hopefully for you!

Richard has a true passion for music, and it comes through in his teaching. He is kind and gentle in his style, with an amazing depth of knowledge to share with his students. Ricky will help new students learn the foundations of piano - rhythm, fingering, scales, melody, and more. Be sure to ask him to play for you, he has an amazing gift to give.

    I know Gabe on several levels. As a patron to local live music venues, Gabe is as good as it gets. His musical talents with percussive fingerstyle acoustic guitar are remarkable. His interpretive covers of other artists’ hits are as good as the original, often more interesting. His original music is outstanding. I also know Gabe as a student. My son and I take lessons from him. The variety of fingerstyle music that he can teach is significant. He will go out of his way to learn a song that we want to learn and break it up into smaller, easy to learn segments. He is inspiring, acceptant of our current abilities, picky about doing it correctly, yet always encouraging. He will record each segment, emphasize the proper timing and technique and send the videos to us to help perfect our practice. There are not many guitarists who can teach the complexity of Michael Hedges’ music and break it down to learnable segments. He has a gift as a performer and a coach, but he works hard at it too.

    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.
