One of the goals of KCA is to inspire and encourage Kauai's young, musically-talented students. KCA provides scholarships to students who take private lessons to enhance their musicianship. Over the last four years, KCA has given $25,000 in scholarships for piano, violin, trumpet, saxophone, voice and all areas of dance.

The scholarship recipients are invited to KCA's concerts, allowing the students to witness first-hand the outstanding artists that come to Kauai to perform under the auspices of KCA. The students are also welcomed at the receptions following the concerts where they have the unique opportunity to meet the performers in person. KCA has an ongoing effort to explore and apply for grants and donors to expand the capabilities of the organization in the scholarship area.

Your donation to KCA will help bring world-class artists to kauai and help kauai music students achieve their goals. Click here to donate.









A large part of KCA's mission is to provide music education outreach opportunities to Kaua`i's students. Our Education Services Committee works with school administrators and visiting artists to deliver live performances and master classes all over the island.

KCA's mission emphasizes educational service to the community and particularly to the schools. We regularly request the artists we bring to the island to do school performances and demonstrations, master classes, or other appearances in addition to their public performance. KCA's goal is to make world class music available to everyone on Kauai.

Educational Outreach
Schools face ever tightening budgets. Teachers are limited in funds and resources to create new and different experiences for students. Through our educational services, KCA has a positive impact on Kauai's youth. We plan even more outreach opportunities this upcoming season.

KCA Loves Kids
Tickets for students under 18 are usually offered at a discounted price of $10. We encourage you to bring students to performances and expose them to a wide variety of music.

KCA Scholarship Program
KCA awards scholarships annually to deserving students who wish to further their education in the study of instruments, dance and voice.
