Education Spotlight


All classes are taught by the Outpost team comprising saxophonist, Kanoa Kaluhiwa; drummer, Sharon Eldridge; trumpeter, Paul Gonzales; and our most recent addition to the teaching staff, César Bauvallet. We aim to build positive attitudes, trust, teamwork, cooperation, confidence, compassion, and a sense of humor, everything you could ever want from music.

Outpost will provide a piano, a drumset, and guitar & bass amplifiers. Read More »
