The Asociación Cultural Los Angeles (ACLA) is a nonprofit corporation serving the communities of South Bay and Southeast Los Angeles County.  Since 1999, its mission has been to foster opportunities that allow children and youth to develop a strong personal identity through music.  The Asociacion understands that self-esteem, a big part in how children feel about themselves, also affects how much they enjoy other aspsects of their lives.

The Asociacion works to increase the students’ understanding of who they are as people by teaching them the rich history of one of the most cherished music forms in the world- Mariachi. Email us at for information and to schedule your session.
