About Hunter

Hello all! My name is Hunter Dunn; I'm a Bellingham native recently moved to Tacoma. Last year, I taught outdoor preschool in Burien's Seahurst Park - I'd finish up the day there then head down the block to Music & Arts. The year prior, I taught K-8 music (both classroom and private lessons) in the public schools of Condon, Oregon after earning my B.A. in Music Composition from Whitman College. My background includes many years performing/directing in choirs and a cappella groups of all stripes, jazz and funk bands, and a grab bag of stage productions, musical and otherwise. My primary goal is that everyone love their method of learning - I find the best results come when goals and tone are an ongoing conversation between student and teacher. Outside of Music & Arts, I direct the choir (currently virtual) of Tacoma's Grace Baptist Church and perform in pop-rock band 48° North (www.48degreesband.com).
