Can you imagine a more ideal place to study music than on the island of Maui and at UH Maui College? There is a variety of music classes taught at UH Maui College, particulary in the areas of Hawaiian, world, popular and rock music, as well as instruction in piano, guitar, ‘ukulele, vocal performance, theory, composition, music technology and recording, and private instruction by arrangement. Music classes are not simply for fun (though they certainly are fun), nor are they simply electives.

aerial_Iao9949_FCourses taught by the music faculty also play a vital role in the A.S.C. in Hawaiian Music offered by the Institute of Hawaiian Music, and many of our classes fulfill important requirements in the AA in Liberal Arts degree.

You can find more information on the classes that we offer and our talented faculty and lecturers.

If you are not a current UH Maui College student, you will find information on how to enroll on the UH Maui College’s “Apply Now” page. The schedule of classes for Fall 2015 is now posted. We hope that you will join us in a music class this semester!
