Meet Ramón Rivera
My name is Ramon Rivera and I have been a Mariachi Educator for over 20 years.
Mariachi music in public schools is the fastest-growing music program in the United States where there are thousands of music students learning Mariachi music.
I am the Mariachi Director of the Mount Vernon (WA) School District Mariachi Program. I teach Middle School and High School from Beginner to Advanced. I have been teaching with pTrumpet and, for beginners it has been a game-changer for my Mariachi Program.
I teach students with zero experience. A regular brass trumpet can be very heavy for the young student (and also very expensive for the school!) pTrumpet is lightweight, easy to carry, and plays like a brass trumpet. I found it easier to teach the students to learn how to buzz on pTrumpet and it is so much easier for the student to learn the fingerings when simply holding the trumpet is made easier.
