The goal of the community band is to provide a setting where parents and their children from Kualapu’u and Ho’olehua can work together to learn to play a musical instrument. The class is also open to anyone on Molokai that wants to participate.

The following instruments are available for students to borrow: flutes, clarinets, saxophones, trumpets and trombones. The class is free and meets on Thursdays from 5-7 p.m. in the Molokai High School band room.

The 21st Century Instrumental Music Program also offers instruction in strings (violins, violas, cello and bass). Classes are free and meet at Kaunakakai Elementary School room A-103 on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3-5 p.m. String instruments are also available for students to borrow.
