I earned my B.A. in music from Hood College and have studied with Elaine Bonazzi in New York and Ruth Drucker in Baltimore. I sang opera professionally in my twenties and have been teaching private voice lessons for fifteen years. Many of my students have gone on to music conservatories or universities for vocal performance (classical and musical theater), but if you are just looking to have fun singing that is great, too!

*note: for voice lessons I only teach female students

ONLINE VOICE LESSONS: I offer VOICE LESSONS ONLY online as piano does require a physical presence at the keyboard with the student. If you are interested in online voice lessons, there are some differences from a live lesson to consider:

During live lessons, I accompany my students on the piano for their songs. During online lessons, due to lag time and my need to clearly hear you during lessons in order to give solid feedback, you will need to have an audio source separate from whatever device you are

Hello there! My name is Lauren, and I have over a decade of experience teaching violin. I earned my BM and MM degrees from Eastman School of Music in Violin Performance and perform regularly at venues such as Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center.

As a teacher, I adapt my teaching methods on-the-spot to introduce and reinforce concepts in a patient, enthusiastic, and creative manner tailored to each student. In addition to equipping my students with proper violin technique, students are empowered and develop their communication skills and confidence while fostering a lasting curiosity for learning and a genuine love for the imaginative and expressive capabilities of music.

Lauren is an amazing violin instructor to our 11 year old son. She is always on time, has a great way with kids, and really brought out his confidence. I over heard him in the lesson saying “ohhh, that’s how you do it.” Lauren is a highly accomplished musician and outstanding teacher. We highly recommend her to anyone.
Thomas
When I first started studying with Lauren in 2017, I was a freshman in high school and stuck in the fifth stand of my orchestra. Six months later, I moved up to being the concert master. Lauren is amazing. She brings out the best in my playing. She has a great ear for music, she is an amazing violinist, and the best teacher I have ever had. With Lauren I was able to progress from 3rd position to 7th position in a short time. She is very kind and patient, and never gets frustrated with me (unlike all my other teachers). She is the reason I have been able to excel at violin. Best. Teacher. Ever.

"After my first 30 minutes into my Discovery call with Hunter I knew she was a match for me. She just got it! She understands the dynamics of cutting through B.S. that doesn't matter in order to get you to stay focused and on track towards goals that DO matter! After explaining to her a lot of my roadblocks and huge gigantic goals/dreams she immediately embraced even some of the not so fun experiences I shared and encouraged me to see them all as part of my journey. I highly encourage working with Hunter because what I think has helped her and her clients reach their own success is that she is a coach that works with you where you are no judgements or blaming. She can see your potential in you inspiring you even closer to your dreams. I feel more confident than ever that I will be able to achieve some really lofty goals through working with her and I can't wait to get even further into our coaching sessions!"

"The reason I came to Mr. Brian was that I got switched to various teachers when I was taking piano lessons at a local music school. It was hard for me to adapt so many teaching styles. The school didn't even allow me to take a week off when my ex-teacher was sick! The owner of the school forced me to try out the other teachers. Horrible experience. After getting irritated, I was told by my former teacher that she had to leave for China for a few months and I just didn't want to wait for so long in order to resume my lessons. My friend told me he studies with Mr. Brian and I just wanted to try him out and I couldn't be happier! He has an interesting and unique way of teaching; he can always come up with vivid descriptions of sound. We'd both laugh at it but it helped my playing!! He always made me think and try to understand the meaning behind the notes and harmonies. We worked a lot on piano technique, arm movement, weight transfer and did a lot of fingerwork. He had me play a lot of Czerny studies and scales.
I have been with him for almost two years now and I am currently trying to play some Chopin etudes. Under his tutelage, I have been given the chance to participate in various competitions. I had the chance to perform in public at prestigious venues like Carnegie and Merkin Hall. I never thought I could come this far. Mr. Brian inspired me to major in piano performance in college!
In retrospect, I wish I hadn't gone to the local music school at all...

I highly recommend Mr. Brian. He will make your fingers "sing"!
The best mentor & a life changing figure."

"Mauricio is a very talented musician. He's friendly, punctual and professional. He's always more than happy to answer my questions. He was also very patient when helping me choose a guitar for my father. Mauricio is currently teaching my father how to play a Nylon Spanish Guitar (beginner). My father loves his lessons with him and always looks forward to the next one. As of now, he's only had 4 lessons, but he's already more confident. I can also see how much my father has learned and improved in such a short amount of time. We will definitely continue guitar lessons with Mauricio and I would recommend him to any age group."
