Ke Kula Mele Hawai‘i o Akaka is a school for Hawaiian music study established by renowned music artist and teacher Alan Akaka.
Ke Kula Mele Hawai‘i is a place where creative and musical ideas can be developed, nurtured, and shared in a safe, fun, and supportive environment firmly built on a foundation of Hō‘ihi (Respect), Kuleana (Responsibility), Mālama (Care for), and Aloha (Love).
Ke Kula Mele Hawai‘i will provide opportunities to demonstrate excellence, inspire others, build hope, model leadership and enrich all the lives that it touches.
The school is located in Kailua on the Windward side of O‘ahu home to one of the world's most beautiful beaches where the wafting tradewinds cool our seaside mecca and the scent of flowers permeates the air.
The calm setting and "mana" of Kailua makes this a wonderful area to study Hawaiian music.
At Ke Kula Mele, we believe that nothing is coincidence. We believe that when the student is ready, the teacher appears.
