The Spring 2014 semester has just started, and already the students of the Institute of Hawaiian Music have met with two outstanding Hawai‘i musicians. On Thursday, January 16, 2014, guitarist/producer/composer Halemanu visited for the first of what we hope will be many times to work with our students.

On Friday, January 17, 2014, guitarist/composer/singer Barry Flanagan of the group Hapa joined IHM students before Hapa’s concert at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center.

And we have several more mentors visiting later this month and in early February. Stay tuned for news!
