The Trumpet Mariachi Source was created to provide educational content to trumpet players that will help them become successful in the mariachi industry. FREE Song tutorials are uploaded weekly to YouTube and act as the backbone of Trumpet Mariachi Source. Premium features will help students gain knowledge in music theory, ear training, solfeo, changing keys, and eventually will help them gain both the abilities to replicate/distinguish styles and musical independence.
