(San Juan, PR) August 10, 2009. The cuatrista Maribel Delgado launched an interactive website, www.cuatristas.com, which will help hundreds of people play the cuatro Puerto Rican from the comfort of your home.

The benefits of studying the cuatro Puerto Rican online are immense and can have a significant impact on the international promotion of the Puerto Rican national instrument. Currently people from the United States, Puerto Rico, Guam, Mexico, Spain, Poland, among others are learning to interpret the cuatro Through the site and this fills me with great satisfaction as an educator and representative of the typical music of Puerto Rico. The idea for the creation of cuatristas.com was to provide education of cuatro Puerto Rican to people who do not have time to take face-to-face lessons due to their busy lifestyle or because they do not have a teacher available in their city or country (as is the case of people outside of Puerto Rico). The site www.cuatristas.com is very easy to use and allows users to choose their lessons according to their needs, they also have teachers who come online and live help (video conference) 24/7. The main objectives of cuatristas.com are strengthening the education of cuatro Puerto Rican, provide opportunities for learning that fit the busy agenda we live today and promote the national instrument and bring education to people who do not have access to a teacher because of its location. The Virtual School provides educational resources that can be downloaded from the www.cuatristas.com
