There is a variety of music classes taught at UH Maui College, particularly 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.

Courses taught by out music faculty playd a vital role in the A.S.C. in Hawaiian Music offered by the Institute of Hawaiian Music. We now offer an Academic Subject Certificate (A.S.C.) in Music Studies that will provide students with a solid foundation in the performance and academic study of music. Many of our music classes fulfill important requirements in the AA in Liberal Arts and AA in Hawaiian Studies degrees.

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 2023 is now posted. You can also view course descriptions. We hope that you will join us in a music class this semester!
