EDUCATION

 

Education is one of the cornerstones of Mexico Beyond Mariachi. We provide in-school performances, workshops, and residencies, working together to create an individualized package that will meet you and your students’ needs.

Over the past 10 years Mexico Beyond Mariachi has performed at more than 250 schools and community education venues.

School Performances:

An informative, transformative and fun experience, Mexico Beyond Mariachi’s interactive lecture demonstrations take students and faculty to the heart of vibrant Mexican culture, past and present. The dramatically narrated program engages students on a journey that begins over 2000 years ago with Mesoamerican civilization and continues chronologically demonstrating how time, geography, climate and foreign influence have affected the cultural and artistic modes of expression to the present day.

Our ongoing artistic inquiry is combined seamlessly with sound pedagogical structure to ensure that students are excited as they learn. This is the experience that will change your students’ perception of the country, its people, and its cultural practices.

We provide educators with a study guide to help them prepare students for the performance and follow up in the classroom. The materials assist educators in integrating the program with existing curricula, ensuring that students obtain the full benefit of the experience.

Workshops and Residencies:

The company conducts one-day intensive workshops as well as multi-week performance-oriented residencies. Our extensive experience working with some of the most diverse populations in the country enable us to offer programs that yield meaningful, measurable results.
