From the composer:
In Hawaiian, the word Mokupuni means “Islands”. After having lived there for a number of years and exploring some of the islands that Hawai’i has to offer, I learned that all islands are different and distinct. Just like these etudes are all drastically different, they come together to form this book, just like multiple islands come together to form a diverse network of people and cultures. Please enjoy these etudes, and please feel free to post any recordings you have, just please tag me @parkerplaysperc.
