Claudia Carawan is simply the best. She is very thorough in her approach and explains both theory and application in a very straight forward manner. She combines technical practice with real life application and works toward developing your own voice to its fullest extent. Very professional. I find there is a nice mix between working on scales and vocal techniques combined with singing and working on actual songs (of my choice!!) makes the lesson go by very smoothly and you walk away with more confidence and more ability. The setting is comfortable, the space is very open for creativity and Claudia is an extremely encouraging type of teacher/coach - she is very positive and continually reinforces in a very positive manner - this is most helpful. She is very experienced and this is obvious in her coaching as she can draw on so many past experiences and has a broad depth of musical references to draw from (e.g. jazz, R&B, rock, soul, country, etc.) - she understands how to draw out the best in your voice and gives a very solid foundation that you can grow from and continually develop from for years to come. The best!!!

Both of my children took lessons from Adella. When one child wanted to learn jazz piano to be able to play with her school jazz ensemble, Adella quickly switched gears and helped make that happen. My other child took voice lessons from Adella for two reasons: 1. to help be a better singer for school ensembles. 2. to prepare for college auditions. My child was accepted into one of the best public university music programs in the country. While this second accomplishment was due in part to the voice quality of my child, Adella is the one who taught her the skills, the repetoire and the process for auditioning. She even accompanied us to the auditions to play for the auditions. Adella became a member of our family. She is gifted, talented and truly understands how the young mind (age 6 - 18) learns and how the young instrument should be properly trained, educated, challenged at all the right levels in order to excel and, most importantly, enjoy music for a lifetime.

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.
