As a guitarist who first learned by ear and later got a college music degree, I tailor all my lessons to the student's preferred learning style, music interests, age, and ability. No matter what music, riffs, parts, changes, or improvisational skills you want to learn, we can explore them. Beyond that, I believe in teaching you how guitarists teach themselves. That's how most guitarists get to where they want to be.

I've had some great guitar teachers in my life and I've learned a lot from them about music and playing the guitar. I will use what my teachers taught me to help you or your child learn how to play the guitar. I teach beginning to advanced players (except for classical guitar which I teach beginning to intermediate levels), kids and adults, and will work with you in a fun and challenging environment to make sure you are getting the most out of your investment. I am a very calm and friendly teacher who will make our lessons fun while also encouraging you to make progress. I will strive to keep you motivated to improve and will document your progress with the use of technology like audio recordings and video so you can see and hear your progress as well as learn from your mistakes. I like to work from guitar method books so we can establish specific and measurable goals, but I do respect and accommodate different learning styles. And, of course, we will work progressively on any songs that you have your heart set on learning so that you can be playing the music that you love! I believe that there is always room for improvement. I continue to look for new ways to improve my own playing. I am sure that I will be learning some things from you, too, so let's get started!

Lee teaches acoustic guitar using a holistic and minimalist musical approach — you only learn what you really need to know. Learn how to play songs and have fun while you increase your guitar skills. Students can learn on a steel-string acoustic guitar, or a nylon string (classical) guitar. No note-reading is required to learn chord progressions, song structure, and effective strumming and picking patterns for folk, blues and rock acoustic guitar. Lee offers her own visual materials and chord grids, popular acoustic songs, and select acoustic guitar method books. She's also a Beatles expert and can take you from "Twist and Shout" to "Blackbird". Lee has performed and recorded as a singer-songwriter-guitarist since 2001, including hundreds of performances in the New Orleans area, ten years of performances at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, and appearances at acoustic venues across the USA. • Award-winning performing singer-songwriter • Bachelor of Music Education from Loyola University, New Orleans (Instrumental Music) • Master of Music from Belmont University, Nashville (Instrumental Pedagogy) • Guitar Instructor for community college, high school and middle school  • "Acoustic Intensive" instructor in acoustic guitar, music theory and songwriting for the National Guitar Workshop in New Orleans, Austin, Chicago, and Nashville

A Musical Journey – Don’t Stop Believing

Heather A.

By Heather A.-Minneapolis Guitar Teacher

As a guitar teacher in Minneapolis, I remember going to my first orchestra concert. The music I heard was magical. I was completely captivated by the sounds and at that moment, I knew I wanted to be a musician. Music was my retreat. When I first began, I absolutely loved playing and improving each time I picked up the instrument. The level of accomplishment was exhilarating. Throughout my musical journey, I have met wonderful friends and teachers who have inspired me and I am now able to inspire others. My favorite teacher still brings a smile to my face. Her utmost kindness and love for teaching music shined for all to see.

Music is a gift that can’t be fully valued and appreciated until it’s experienced. This is why I love teaching guitar lessons in Minneapolis. I love sharing the gift of music with people. It’s a joy to cultivate growth in the students and inspire them to reach their goals. It is when students begin to discover their full potential in music and the light bulb goes on that students realize what they’re capable of accomplishing. The possibilities for my guitar students could lead them to be a future musician and music teacher that will no doubt continue to inspire others along their journey.

So don’t dream about music, make it a reality! No matter where you’re on your journey music lessons will be fun and rewarding. Sign up for guitar lessons in Minneapolis today!
