Kupa‘a 104 Room Schedule Fall 2015

Classes start Monday August 24, 2015 and already eager pianists are wondering when they can get access to practice on one of the two dozen pianos in Kupa‘a 104, the main music classroom.


Choosing a music course

UHMC has one of the most diverse music offerings of any college. With the exception of the Institute of Hawaiian Music (IHM) which requires auditioning, most courses are offered without pre-requisites. No auditions. No entrance exams.


Piano Class: MUS121C, MUS122C, MUS216

At UH Maui College, you can take up to three semesters of piano by starting with MUS121C and eventually ending with MUS216. It does not matter what level you are at, you will learn in a group situation as well as progress at your own individual pace.

Evening piano class meets once a week for 2.5 hours


MUS108 vs MUS180

No, it’s not a typing mistake. MUS108 is a new 3-credit course on music literacy — showing you how to read music from scratch. It’s like learning to read from the alphabet. You will learn how to read notes, tap rhythm, and basically “everything you’ve always wanted to know about music but were afraid to ask.”
