Eric Hunter is a multi-genre pianist, composer, and educator based in NYC. He co-founded The Piano Pod with Yukimi Song and Clara Zhang during the coronavirus pandemic. They together built the show's foundation: to examine the traditions of the piano, adapt them, and expand its capabilities in this modern era.
Mr. Hunter co-hosted from the introductory episode of Season 1 to the 5th episode of Season 2. He stepped down from co-hosting in October 2021 and is now serving on an advisory board at TPP. In addition, he is a composer of our introductory and closing music.

She moved to Topeka, Kansas with a music scholarship and started her professional music career.
