El Paso Music Learning Corner was founded in 1993 by professional guitarist Mario Otero and his wife Hortensia. The newlywed couple dedicated their lives to one common dream- spreading the joy of music to the people around them. Twenty-eight years later, The Learning Corner now stands as a cornerstone of our community. We have cultivated musical passion and excellence in the hearts of many generations past, and will continue to do so for those to come.
