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.
We are excited to have Ian O’Sullivan return to ‘Ike Le‘a to give another free public concert this July, this time with two guitarists who have not come to the college before. For more information, visit the events page.

In MUS107 Music in World Cultures, we go on a trip around the world through music. To prepare for it, we first learn the vocabulary of music, such as pitch, rhythm, texture, timbre (tone color) and musical instruments. We learn to appreciate different cultures through the lens of an ethnomusicologist — someone who studies music as part of people’s way of life. Understanding new listening experiences from the points of view of an ethnomusicologist, a music theorist, and musicologist can challenge and enrich the perspectives you’re used to.
How this course in Fall 2014 was taught via Cable TV was presented at the 20th TCC conference at UH Manoa in March 2015. See PDF.
For those you who missed the full-house blast of Earth Day Jam in which we were joined by two members of the Boom Booms Band from Vancouver, the Chinese erhu player Hong Zhou, the Kihei-based singer songwriter Louise Lambert, and the violinist Wenlu Duffy, you won’t want to miss this!
We look forward to our final workshop and concert this the semester on Wednesday May 7th from 5 to 8 PM. We will begin with solo performances followed by intermission and then group playing. […]
