“Within a Hawaiian worldview, balance contributes to our joy and understanding of our kuleana (responsibility),” said Kimokeo, director of the Hawaiʻi Music Institute at Windward CC. “This music certificate offers a balanced approach to learning Hawaiian music. From beginner to professional, students will be able to share the joy of music within their ʻohana and with others for generations to come.”
The next cohort (fall 2022–spring 2023) aims to deepen participants’ understanding of Hawaiian music performance and history. Participants will learn from reputable industry professionals how to improve their performance skills, use music in various educational settings, and how music can be a tool to connect with our island home.
