One of the new music offerings at UH-MC is “History of Hawaiian Music”, taught by Dr. Keola Donaghy. He taught a similar class at UH-Hilo for eight years, and is now offering the class online through the UH system's Laulima courseware system. While the class does have two prerequisite courses listed, Keola will happily waive them for you. Simply email donaghy(at)hawaii(dot)edu with your name and UH ID number, and he will issue you a permit to register for the class.
