We provide excellent musician instructors, who are also high-caliber professionals, well known for their contributions to Hawaiian music and who learned by traditional methods and teach in the traditional style that has sustained cultural integrity and preservation of music traditions. Instructors have included Cyril Pahinui, Dennis Kamakahi, Palani Vaughan, Kawika Kahiapo, Sonny Lim, Greg Sardinha, Peter Wook Moon, Jeff Au Hoy, and Pomaika‘i Keawe Lyman.
In addition to learning music theory and comprehension, instructors equip students with strong foundational skills in Hawaiian music style. Students are provided with opportunities for performance to ensure they can effectively apply their newfound skills and knowledge and build self-esteem and pride in their accomplishments. Several performances are scheduled annually at schools and community festivals and events where students perform alongside their kumu (master instructors).
