Best guitar and mandolin instructor ever! Patricio possess not only the charisma to play with passion, but also possess the patience and creativity to make of every playing lesson an enjoyable experience.

I enjoy the creative challenge of teaching to each individual student’s wants and needs. I take an integrated approach to technical development, ear training, theory and songwriting/composition, giving students ways to play as well as understand the music they love.

I work with both children and adults, primarily those who are at the beginning or early intermediate stages of their musical development. In my own practice, I focus chiefly on jazz, and have found that many of the skill sets used in jazz (learning by ear, improvising), when coupled with more conventional teaching methods, can accelerate the process of learning piano, making it more fun and creatively rewarding for students.

Although people tend to perceive piano as a “classical” or “jazz” instrument, some of the most compelling pianists today are drawing from hip hop, rock, and every other genre of music, each with their own set of skills to teach. Though I offer a firm grounding in the classical tradition, I seek

Shortly thereafter, I left for another city with a thriving music scene: Chicago. I play primarily within jazz and improvised music contexts, but have also perfor

From first lesson through advanced high school students, I focus on quality of tone production and musicality.

About Hunter

My primary teaching philosophy revolves around the ideas of creativity and cooperative problem solving. I believe that all musicians should be actively training their ears as well as their abilities on their instrument. I focus on all elements of basic musicianship while incorporating improvisation

Hunter is a phenomenal teacher. My son (7) and myself have been taking weekly lessons with Hunter for 8 months now. He is wonderful with kids focusing on my son's readiness and getting him to enjoy and make progress. With me, Hunter has been great at adapting to what I wanted to get out of the lessons and I have made really great progress I did not think was possible. Thank you Hunter!!!

Very helpful and willing to go the extra mile to help his student's succeed.
Lara
David is the rare combination of a true artist who wants to help others discover their own musical voice. He is always able to find a solution to my technical problems, with the goal of helping me play more musically. He takes me seriously as a student, challenging and encouraging me with understanding, patience and kindness.
Natalie P.
David was very knowledgeable about music and made it easy to understand. This was especially important to me since I am starting new, not having any musical background other than a love for music and a passion to play. This instructor helped me realize I have potential which is also important. After just one lesson I was able to take what he taught me and put some of his advice together musically and it is starting to make sense. I am looking forward to my future lessons!

I employ a variety of techniques (breathing, vocalises, vocal health tips, etc) to empower a new singer to first explore and understand their voice, and then strengthen and expand it. I always prioritize my students’ vocal health, and customize lesson exercises to their unique needs. Every voice is one-of-a-kind. Whether you’re just starting to discover your voice, or have been singing for a while, come uncover your vocal prowess!

I have to admit I was a bit skeptical of online piano at first, but now I’m a fan! My daughter loves Beth and was taking piano in person, but now logistically online is the only option. It works really well, since it’s in the comfort of our home and I don’t have to take her anywhere. We set up a ring light I bought on Amazon and it’s works great through FaceTime! My daughter enjoys the online classes and looks forward to the annual local recital. We highly recommend Beth online or in person! She is so gifted and such a blessing!

6 Tips for Singing and Playing the Piano at the Same Time

Artists like Billy Joel and Elton John may make it look effortless, but singing and playing the piano at the same time takes time and practice to truly master! Understandably, it’s difficult because you’re multitasking by "playing" two instruments simultaneously – your voice and the piano. It’s easy to lose concentration on one, while the other goes a little off; if you focus on your voice, you might mess up the timing with your fingers, and should you pay too much attention to the p …
