Help us go tothe next level.  The Academy's competition team just won Best Performance at the 2017 City of National City's Mariachi Fest.  But, our program closes this month until funding is provided again.  We are invited to participate in 2 more major events and need classes.  Please help us!

The Mariachi Academy of Carson (MAC) is a program of the Asociación Cultural de  Los Angeles (ACLA).   The Asociación was formed in November 2000 as a volunteer association and incorporated in March 2005 as a California corporation.
The MAC has been providing services since 2000. 

The Mariachi Academy is a music and cultural education program.  Our mission is to provide cultural education, enrichment, and support for the academic growth of children and youth through music, song, and broad exposure to the arts.   The Mariachi Academy fosters self-esteem, cross-cultural learning, bilingualism, and academic excellence by exposing students to experienced professionals and by creating a safe, fulfilling, and academically enriching environment where their talents and creative genius can be developed.

Funds raised will be used to support our instructional programs, performance support (such as transportation), and support for competitions. Our students range in age from 5 yrs. to 17.  We hope to raise these funds by Feburary 2017. 

The children are transformed by the experience in the Academy.  They building life skills and memories that they will keep for the rest of their lives.  Thanks so much for supporting our program.
