we LOVE music

Welcome to Hanalei Strings! Our mission is to provide the most welcoming, supportive space for people (and dogs) interested in learning the wonderful art of making music and being creative. For millennia, people have engaged in making music and making garments with fiber. We believe music and art are for everyone. To that end, we carry quality entry level ukuleles and also the finest solid Koa Hawaiian handmade instruments. With our love of the creative lifestyle, we also carry a large selection of locally dyed yarns and offer lessons in knitting and crocheting. We pride ourselves on a carefully chosen selection of vintage guitars and Hawaiian Steel Guitars. Our store in an educational center with group and private lessons available. With a stage and sound system, we also host unique musical events, from local Hawaiian music to international guests. We are very happy to introduce new generations to the joys of pouring over record covers and discovering great old music on vinyl records.
