Musical Lessons From The Dear Hunter

Nick Crescenzo and Andy Wildrick (The Dear Hunter) are offering musical lessons on a few different instruments.

Hey all people,

Casey from The Dear Hunter here, pimpin’ out my sweet Dear Hunter cohorts.

At the moment we are working on our record, and loving every minute of it. As with every record so far, there is a lot of down time. To fill this downtime, a few members of the band are looking to give lessons on their instruments to whoever wants some sweet sonic knowledge.

SO- if you are looking for Drum or Bass lessons, and live in the New England area (providence specifically)- Please contact my brother Nick at He is an incredibly easy going dude and is a great teacher- in life, and percussion.

Also- if you are looking for guitar lessons (classical as well) please contact – Thats right… Wild Rick. Great dude, great teacher, great name.

Seriously friends, we rarely have downtime and these guys have a lot to teach- so if you want to expand your brain, or just see Nick life a car with one arm, let us know ASAP!

Love and Thanks.
