Hungry Monk Music was established to provide quality music instruction to students of all ages and abilities.

[06/02/20]   It has been a challenging end of the school year. A big shout out to all our students and teachers who have left making music through this difficult time.

Along with everyone else, we have been confronted with this unprecedented health crisis. While our in-person private and group lessons have been on hold, all of our teachers have been conducting online lessons with their students. Hungry Monk Music teachers will continue to teach and welcome new students throughout the summer. Our in-person lessons are one-on-one and we will keep a safe distance and follow safety protocols as outlined by the CDC. Our online lessons are also available and recommended. As always, if you are interested in starting or continuing lessons over the summer send us a message through our website and we will connect you with a teacher.

As guidelines for business allow for more openness we are looking forward to welcoming our students back to Hungry Monk Music. We will continue to use our regular cleaning service to keep our environment safe. We intend to continue following guidelines to be as safe for our community as possible.

Our summer camp schedule is still posted on our website. We are currently making decisions regarding these camps and encourage you to sign up. We will communicate with our students regarding summer camps as any changes are made.

We hope that we will all come out of this challenging experience with new ideas, new skills, and a new love for the reason we all gather here in the first place: to make music. Thank you for your support.

Some of the young fiddlers at Thursday’s Student Showcase

[12/20/19]   Last night Hungry Monk Music students showed their love of music, and their support of their fellow students, by attending and playing at our Student Showcase at The Pour House. Young children, teenagers, and full grown adults all played their hearts out. Even in the cold weather. The Charleston Mandolin Orchestra made it’s debut with a selection of Christmas carols. We had fiddlers, guitarists, pianists, mandolinists, and singers. I am always moved by all our students and it is exciting to watch people of all ages improve constantly. I saw several parents moved to tears. As usual, I was running around trying to keep the show moving and did not take any pictures. Anyone who did is encouraged to post them here. Special gratitude to my brother in music, John F. Kennedy, who always takes charge of the sound and makes everyone sound great. Thanks to Dennis Ware for making his drums available. Hungry Monk faculty Cindy Kearney not only let the students use her keyboard, she got several of her students up on stage and, of course, lent her own piano skills to an opening set by The Hungry Monks. Ellie Jos, Loretta Haskell and Matt Masie were also on hand to help their students make music. Thank you to the entire Hungry Monk Music faculty for sharing your love of music. Damian Kremer, Asako Kremer, Kumi Bergman, Bill Carson, and Darlyne Cain.

Zephyr

A tune by Turlough O’Carolan

Lord Massarene, tune by Turlough O’Carolan played by the band, Zephyr. John Holenko on octave mandolin, Karin McQuade on fiddle, Susan Conant on tenor recorder.

Matt Masie leads the Hungry Monk Music Percussion Ensemble. A bunch of great students who have really worked hard.

The Hungry Monks

This tune goes way back to a week spent in a hotel in Little Rock, AR where we stayed with nothing to do but swim in the pool. My daughter, Althea, was little and we would waltz around the pool while in the water.

The Hungry Monks

I wrote this tune while staying at Chimney Run Farm in Virginia.

Well, we pulled it off. The first annual Coastal Carolina Fair Fiddle Competition hosted by Hungry Monk Music. Thanks to all the competitors, the judges, our sponsors, and the huge audience. Lots of talk about what to do for next year so I’m pretty sure there will be a second annual.

Another amazing Student Coffee House at Hungry Monk Music. Every month I get to see why we all spend so much time doing this thing: teachers teaching and students practicing. We will not stop getting better.

[10/18/19]   Student Coffee House tonight at 7pm. Come out and play us a tune, or just check out your fellow students.
