He noticed that the young members taking music lessons at the society wee very talented at playing mariachi instruments such as the violin and trumpet. Mariachi music tended to have female singers and not instrument players. Hernandez decided to create a band of girls and young women who played these instruments. The band Mariachi de Los Angeles was formed and became the first American all female Mariachi band.
