Mariachi Mastery (La Maestria del Mariachi) is a comprehensive resource that includes lessons, songs for performance, graded exercises, and tips. Each graded exercise helps students learn to play in the correct style – from Ranchera Valseada to Son Jalisciense. Each book includes exercises and tips specific to that instrument to guide students' musical advancement towards performing mariachi music in an authentic style. The audio that comes with each student book is ideal for home practice use and is mastered so that students can either hear the armonia and melody instruments together, or separate them out to listen more closely to their own part. This series is perfect for students who have completed one year of study on their instrument. With flexible instrumentation and careful scoring, Mariachi Mastery allows you to simultaneously teach violin, trumpet, guitarrón, armonía, viola, cello, bass, and/or harp students all together in one room. Songs include: De Colores, La Bamba, La Llorona, Tristes Recuerdos, and El Caballito!
