HAKU MeleCraft Bootcamp
Haku Collective’s MeleCraft mentorship program aims to teach young aspiring artists in Hawai’i how to create quality songs and remain authentic to themselves through the ever-changing soundscape of music today by connecting them with established artists as mentors.
Since Haku Collective debuted their first MeleCraft BootCamp in 2017, a FREE creative youth workshop led by founder Kimié Miner, they’ve had four successful classes including their most recent one in November 2018 with Henry Kapono.
With the help of artist-mentors like renowned drummer/producer Leslie Ludiazo, Nā Hōkū Hano hano awarded producer/engineer Imua Garza, recording artist Paula Fuga, and songwriter Ashley Lilinoe, Haku Collective has mentored over 50 young artists ages 13-25 in a series of writing and performing exercises to hone their skills and give them the tools to enhance their confidence as aspiring performers and songwriters.
