The Butler School of Music of the University of Texas at Austin has created a full-time mariachi teaching position, and is currently accepting applicants. This is primarily an applied position focused on directing ensembles, but with additional academic teaching responsibilities such as the development of courses in Southwestern border music, Mexican music in general, ethnomusicology, etc.
It would be great to see someone with strong leadership skills and performance experience from our mariachi community land this job. Please help spread the word to anyone you feel may qualify. Strong leadership among colleges/universities with mariachi music programs is crucial to the future of mariachi music!
