Elementary Music

In Elementary, students receive special instruction in music twice a week. The Music program covers ear training, creative movement, noteboard reading, rhythm, singing, cultural music and dramatic role play. Learning songs and dances and performing for Na Kupuna Day, Multicultural Program, and May Day are also a part of the music program. 

In addition, the Elementary school has an Ukulele Club open to students in Grades 3-5. The Ukulele Club performs weekly at the Monday Morning Assemblies, as well as during special performances throughout the year, such as Na Kupuna Day, May Day, and events with the IPA choir and halau.

At the end of the school year, Grade 4 and 5 students perform for friends and family at a special Music Recital to showcase their musical talents in singing, ukulele, recorder and Orff instruments. All the musical skills that they have achieved throughout their Elementary years come together and allow the students to shine.

K-CLUB

We want a place for people who like K-Pop to be able to listen to it and dance to it freely. A lot of people are passionate about K-Pop, so we want to make a place where you can talk about it with people that are just as interested in it as you are.
