American History Through Film
Though books and text are essential in learning, students today are often acquiring knowledge about history through what they watch. Films are familiar in the everyday lives of students, and while watching them alone can lead to incomplete understanding, watching them with others and a teacher can develop a deep grasp of history, a sense of empathy for others, and the skills of identifying cause and effect relationships. Utilizing modern and historical films, this course aims to teach the history of our country through movies.  Regular movie viewing, research, and discussions will be integral to this experience as students learn about the history of America.

Students should bring snacks, lunch and a water bottle daily.

Bass for Everyone
Bass. It’s big, it’s ‘bold. It is the base of music ensembles found in multiple genres throughout the world. Hawaiian Music? Check. Country Western? Check. Symphonic, as in some serious, down and dirty Beethoven? “Chee-yeck”. If you have a standard number of fingers, can stand up, and can see with your eyes to read any sort of printed material, empower yourself as you learn to handle the biggest and lowest-sounding of orchestral stringed instruments. 

In this course, you will learn music reading skills, mind map notes on the fingerboard, and make strategic decisions in order to play music to satisfy actual or perceived desired outcomes of ourselves, composers, and the general context. Use of the French bow will be explored. Skills learned in this class are transferable to other areas of music and non-music study. If you are a Punahou student, your accomplishments in this class could be adequate to prepare for course placement into the Orchestra Program (email orchestra@punahou.edu for more information upon the completion of this course). Non-beginner bass students who wish to review, reinforce, and improve upon current skills may take this course, as well as those without previous musical experience. 

Use of an instrument during summer classes at school is provided at no additional cost.

Clayground
When was the last time you created something out of clay? Wouldn’t it be great if you could work with clay every day? In this course students discover how easy it is to create inventive forms by learning different clay building techniques like pinching, coiling, using a slab and wheel throwing. This nurturing environment focuses on experimentation and fun rather than an end product as the course aims to heighten sensory awareness and build confidence in clay-building skills. Students create functional pieces like a place setting (bowl, plate and cup), which they can use, and explore nonfunctional artwork like creating a ceramic portrait. Students finish their projects by adding texture and color, then watch their artwork magically transform through the firing process. The artwork they create during this course could last a lifetime.

Food Science (NEW)
At some point in our lives, perhaps when we were kicking peas around our plate in an imaginary soccer game, we’ve all been told not to play with our food.

The focus of the five-day, four-night outdoor encampment at Schofield Barracks is reflected in JROTC’s mission statement, “To motivate young people to be better citizens.” 

Students can expect to participate in rappelling, rope bridge, confidence course, physical fitness training, drownproofing/confidence building high dive, drill and ceremonies and map reading/orienteering. Students go bowling for fun and receive a camp t-shirt and special end-of-camp bento meal. 

The $175 tuition also covers all meals for the duration of the camp. Participants are issued Army field uniforms and equipment. Students are required to provide their own camping tent and sleeping bag. Students cannot have any medical conditions or physical limitations that would impair their ability to live in an austere environment. Enrollment in JROTC as a prerequisite is not a requirement. 

Details concerning this camp and enrollment forms will be posted on April 1 at  www.punahoujrotc.com or you may call LTC (Ret.) Takao at 808.944.5723 or email rtakao@punahou.edu

Kindergarten Experience
The Omidyar K – 1 Neighborhood provides a caring environment in which each child’s growth, curiosity and accomplishments are supported. We believe that children:
  • Learn by exploration, inquiry and discovery
  • Should be encouraged to be creative
  • Gain a deeper understanding when experiences and subjects are integrated and connected
  • Should be encouraged to be responsible, respectful, resourceful and contributing members of a group
  • Learn through play
  • Should be encouraged to develop positive social skills and relationships
  • Learn through real-life experiences and hands-on activities
  • Learn through collaboration and interaction with others
  • Learn to be self-directed by making choices
  • Learn best in a safe, supportive, trustworthy environment
  • Learn when they use and develop their large and small muscles
  • Should be encouraged to sustain and extend their natural curiosity

The natural curiosity of kindergartners is fostered through an inquiry and exploration of their surroundings, starting from the Punahou campus and extending into Manoa Valley. In the course of five weeks, students work to develop their critical thinking, creative problem solving and collaboration skills through experiences focused on the arts, literacy, numeracy and play.

Age requirements: Boys must be five years old by June 30; girls must be five years old by September 30.

Let’s Jam! Improv for Strings
Unlike traditional orchestra and chamber music classes where students perform pieces by following sheet music, Let’s Jam empowers students to create music from the inside out. By creating videos and audio recordings, students will learn about the different roles musicians play in various music making situations. In these “jam-session” classes, students will work towards developing a “creative musicians’ tool kit”. Students will learn how to create harmony and groove through extended techniques like strumming, chopping (a bow technique that simulates a drum set), and laying down bass lines. Students will also explore improvising melodies and harmonizing existing melodies.

The skills in this musical tool kit will help students create their own arrangements of songs in a wide variety of genres that includes gypsy swing, celtic, bluegrass, jazz, blues, pop and any other styles of interest to the class. Perfect for any string student (violin, viola, cello or bass) who wants to explore improvisation and creative music making.

The guided “jam-sessions” which culminate in a presentation at the end of the semester. No experience with improvisation or music theory is required. Enrollment is limited to 10 students per class.

Pre-requisite: a minimum playing level of Suzuki book 4, or 3 years of experience in a school orchestra program.

Let’s Jam! Special Gypsy Jazz Edition
When gypsy folk musicians who were playing waltzes and musettes in the dance halls of Europe first heard American Jazz recordings in the 1920s, they immediately became infatuated with the sound and sentiment of swing jazz and created their own version of it using bowed string instruments like violins and basses and guitars. This special edition of Let’s Jam will focus on the tricks and techniques used by legendary jazz pioneers Stephane Grapelli and Django Reinhardt used to create a joyfully improvisational string-based swing music that rocked the cabaret and night club scene in the early part of the 1900s. Open to violinists, violists, cellists, bassists, and guitarists.
