Guitar is my main squeeze. I love to help people enjoy the instrument as much as I do. learn to shred a rock solo, fingerpick a folk song, or transcribe miles davis. learn to play what you hear on records without resorting to you tube instructional videos or tabs. learn to understand the fretboard and use that understanding intuitively and musically. If you are already an accomplished musician, enhance your ability to employ techniques like chord weaving on the guitar, craft better solos, write more sophisticated chord progressions, etc.

I've been a full time professional musician for 18+ years and have toured all over the world performing with music icons like Chacka Khan, Beyonce, and many more. I have a lot of experience with many different styles of music and I love sharing this gift with anyone who's interested. My teaching philosophy is simple: Get students playing music! It's much easier to understand the nuts and bolts of music when put into the context of the music you like. *** Lesson Details *** I like to design a lesson plan for each individual student. The first lesson will begin with a basic assessment of skill level. We will discuss goals for the lessons then get down to work! Students will learn: 1 Technique. the proper physicality to increase dexterity and avoid injury. 2 Music theory and comprehension. Usually through learning songs and analyzing different concepts they incorporate 3 Ear-training/pitch recognition. Strengthening the ability to "pick up" new material more quickly and translate ones Ideas to the instrument. 4 Music appreciation/Musicality. Listening to new and different types of music focusing on the different elements that make up a great performer/performance. *** Studio Equipment *** Music Studio: piano, stereo system, no drum there! room to sit for parents A1: drum kit, whole performance set up with recording studio, room for parents to sit in on lesson *** Travel Equipment *** amplifiers, cd/mp3 player *** Specialties *** ear training, most musical styles (pop/rock, r&b, reggae, jazz , world)

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
