I was born to immigrant parents in the City of Indio, California. After graduating from Coachella Valley High School in 1985, I attended the University of California Irvine, where I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Humanities with emphasis in bilingual education. I have two beautiful daughters who are involved in the mariachi program.
A program like HERENCIA Mariachi Academy, is needed in the community to instill positive reinforcement for young children and a way to keep them involved in positive activities. HERENCIA Mariachi Academy teaches students to appreciate a piece of their culture and heritage, while a the same time, teaches them to play and sing mariachi music.
HERENCIA Mariachi Academy is a non-profit organization serving the community of Corona.
