About Don Chuy

Don Chuy was an influential musician who created the very first Mariachi curriculum in the United States. He taught Mariachi music and Chicano Studies at UCLA and CAL STATE LA. He also went on to teach at several other middle and high schools around the Los Angeles area in the late 1960′s. Don Chuy, a Mariachi Legend, also encouraged women to join Mariachi groups, and believed there could be all female Mariachi groups.
